Wilson Energy marks $13M in utility bill savings – Wilson Times

Wilson Energy customers have saved almost $13 million collectively in the 10 months since rates were reduced nearly 18 percent for residential customers as a result of the sale of assets to Duke Energy Progress.

“I am just proud of Wilson and pleased to do my part with the legislative delegation on their behalf,” said state Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash. “I don’t live there, so I’m not with the constituents on a daily basis as I am in Rocky Mount, but I’m hoping this savings is a big help across the community, particularly with the citizens who need the most help.”

Before Bryant headed to the General Assembly, she was a city councilwoman in Rocky Mount and served as a commissioner with the North Carolina Eastern Municipal Power Agency, where she worked to reduce utility costs in Wilson, Rocky Mount and the other 30 member cities. In recent years, she and Sen. Buck Newton, R-Wilson, sponsored legislation to pave the way for the asset sale to Duke. (Wilson Times)
