"Pay as You Go" Electric Service

With GEUSemPOWER self-managed electronic metering system, you buy electricity on your schedule, whenever you wish. emPOWER allows you to manage your budget by purchasing electricity when you need it.


What are the advantages of emPOWER?

    • Allows you to see your home’s electric usage on a daily basis.
    • Lower or no deposits required
    • Does not charge late fees or disconnect fees.
    • Never receive another monthly electric bill.
    • Eliminate high bills by purchasing electricity daily, weekly, or monthly.

Any residential GEUS customer is eligible for pre-paid emPOWER service (except those registered as a Medical Emergency customer).

To use the service, purchase an emPOWER card, similar to a gift card from a retail store, for a dollar amount you choose. At home, you swipe the card in the unit supplied by GEUS to turn on your electricity. A display on the unit allows you to keep track of how much credit is left on your meter.

You can add more credit to the meter at either customer service location or at the following local convenience stores:

  • Prime Stop - 4414 Wesley St.
  • Prime Stop - 908 Wolfe City Dr.
  • Mr. J's - 4220 Lee St.
  • Xpressway 4303 Joe Ramsey
  • Greenville Food Mart 5207 Wesley

  • You must insert your emPOWER card into your CIU Display to download the energy credit that you purchased.
  • Keep an extra emPOWER card as an EMERGENCY card. Keep credit on your spare card to avoid running out of power at an inconvenient time.
