Energy Mix

Part of Greenville Utilities’ mission is to provide our reliable utility solutions in an environmentally responsible manner. One of the ways we do that is through ensuring a mix of environmentally-friendly sources for our energy.

In the past 10 years, we have reduced our use of energy from coal-fired plants by about 50%, down to just 16% of our mix. Roughly 50% of GUC’s power now comes from nuclear and renewable sources (wind, solar, and hydro). Our use of power from natural gas (which is a cleaner burning fuel) continues to rise in use, and is currently about 31% of our energy mix.

It can be a delicate balance to ensure we have reliable, affordable, and clean energy, but we believe it is important to do so and will continue to do what we can for a clean future.

Here is our current mix of power sources:
