PWC Update on Customer Rates

(from Public Works Commission memo)

The Fayetteville Public Works Commission took action Wednesday July 27 that maintains PWC’s current base electric rates, reduces customer fees, introduces optional electric rates that will offer customers’ choice and continue to support PWC conservation efforts as well as support economic development.

PWC’s NEW optional Whole Home/Business rate will provide additional incentive for off peak energy use by introducing a NEW SUPER-OFF-PEAK rate, that is 50% less that PWC’s current off-peak electric rate.


Super Off-Peak energy period will be available in February 2023.

Super Off-Peak is 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM

There are also NEW and cost saving changes to electric vehicles, renewable energy & economic development. To view the changes and to view the entire power point, please click the link below.

In other changes, PWC lowered fees for connection, reconnection and meter testing, passing along savings achieved by new technology and operations.

From Elaina Ball (PWC CEO/General Manager)PWC is pleased to be able to hold our customers’ base electric rates steady, reduce certain fees and offer NEW optional rates that can help customers save energy and money. Electricity use and technology are rapidly changing , and we are excited to provide options to our customers that will encourage the adoption of new technologies such as roof top solar and electric vehicles.
