Posted at 2:03 PM, Aug 12, 2020

Dominion Energy North Carolina announced today that consumers will see their monthly electric bills decrease $4.56 beginning on Feb. 1, 2021, under proposals filed today with the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC).

If approved by the NCUC, the average bill for a typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours each month would decrease from $111.46 to $106.90 – a 4.1% decrease.

Large industrial customers will see their bills decrease even more – 6.2%, Dominion said.

The lowered costs are due mostly in part to good operating performance and lower fuel prices, officials said.
