GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Greenville Utilities has unanimously approved a $2 base facilities charge increase.

Public Information Specialist Sue Hatch says a mild summer and warm winter caused the utility company to not sell as much electricity as projected, leading to a $850,000 deficit.  She also cited aging systems and an increase in daily operating procedures as a cause of the deficit.

The proposed increase is not a rate increase but rather, you'll see your base charge change from $8.99 to $10.99 if the increase passes.

The increase is projected to raise $400,000 in revenue, while reserve funds will pay for the remaining $450,000 deficit.
