Utilities & Permitting


Our award-winning local utility provider, Greenville Utilities Commission (GUC) truly understands the local market. Benefits of locally owned utilities include greater reliability, efficient service, low costs, customer responsiveness, redundant power, and access to tax-exempt financing for capital projects.

GUC also provides electric water, sewer, and natural gas to 146,000 residents. It is the second largest municipal electric system in North Carolina.
