Facility Charge Adjustment

For many years now we have found ways to absorb the fluctuations in wholesale power cost. Many aspects of the membership
demographics constantly change, and we have to find ways to adapt. With the passage of time and the ever-changing dynamics of our membership, the board directed a study of our rates to determine if changes were needed. In August, we received the results. Good news is in most cases the Kwh charge was reduced. While the cost per Kwh was reduced it was necessary to increase the monthly facility charge. Overall, the average monthly bill will increase by 1.77% beginning November 1, 2021. The last rate adjustment was in 2009, twelve years ago.


Using Debit and Credit cards are easy and convenient for all of us. Unfortunately, the banks charge businesses a processing fee for each transaction. This applies to Pitt and Greene EMC as well. We are charged a processing fee of 2.45% on each transaction. Beginning January 1, 2022, a fee of 2.45% of your total bill will be charged to offset what the bank charges us. Example, your bill is $100.00 for the month. At 2.45% the fee applied will be $2.45. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Pitt and Greene EMC will reinstate all service fees on bills that are due after May 1, 2021.  These include: Cutoff charges, Field Collection Charges, Reconnection Charges and Security Deposits, Disconnection Charges, Return check fee, Interest on Unpaid Balances.
