When GUC has an electric outage, you'll see it on the map.  Circles indicate that an outage has been called in by a customer. Triangles show that we've confirmed the outage and dispatched workers to make the necessary repairs to restore service. When you hover over the triangles, you'll see the approximate service restoration time.

You can also report an electric outage from the map page. You'll need to know your account number of the phone number we have on file for your GUC account. Many customers save their account number on their phone, along with our Emergency Hotline number, 855-767-2482.

Greenville Utilities is dedicated to providing you with reliable utility services you can count on. While outages and other utility-related emergencies don't happen very often, you want help as quickly as possible if they occur. And that’s what we want too!

GUC’s Emergency Hotline, 1-855-767-2482, is an easy way to report an outage, sewer spill, gas leak, water leak, or any other utility emergency. When you call, you will get the help you need.

There are a few simple ways to speed up the process of reporting an outage or other emergency:

Make sure we have your number 
The Emergency Hotline uses an automated system to make sure your call is directed to the right place so you get help as fast as possible. The system tries to match up the number you call from with a number on file for a GUC account. If you call from the primary number listed for your account, you’re one step closer to reporting your problem.

Know your number
If you call from a number other than the primary number listed for your account, no problem! You will be able to punch in the primary telephone number listed for your account, or your account number. The system can find your account information that way. We recommend letting the members of your household know which number is listed as your primary phone number to make it quicker for them should they call to report a problem.

Not sure what number we have for you? It's easy to update your contact information with our Customer Self Service system, right here online. Or, one of our friendly Customer Contact Representatives can help you over the phone. Just give us a call at 252-752-7166.

No worries.
Rest assured that no matter what number you call from, you will get the help you need. And, you always have the option to speak directly with one of our employees when you call.

AutoPay is GUC’s automatic bill payment service. It’s convenient, safe, and easy. You simply authorize payment of your monthly utility bill from your checking or savings account. No stamps, no envelopes, no worries.

Here’s how it works: You will receive your regular, monthly utility bill as usual. On the due date, GUC will draft the amount owed from the bank account of your choice. Your bank statement and utility bill will then show your payment has been made.  

It's automatic and it’s free! Plus, you can use AutoPay for more than one GUC account.

You can even set up the maximum amount to be drafted. This can help protect you if you have a higher than normal bill; you will still be responsible for paying your full bill, it will simply cap how much is automatically drafted from your bank account.

Signing up is easy! You can sign up at one of our offices, or enclose this form with your bill (along with a voided check).

Like getting bills via email? Prefer to get a paper bill? With Customer Self Service, you get to choose!

If you would prefer to get an eBill, signing up is easy.

  • After you log in, click on My Information (under the Account tab in the top menu)
  • Under Bill Delivery Method, click on Update
  • In the dropdown box, select Route via email
  • Click Save and you’re all done.
