MLGW News Release
2019 Utility Rate Comparison Survey
July 24, 2019
The largest three-service municipal utility system in the nation, MLGW delivers electricity, natural gas and water throughout Memphis and Shelby County. Each year we strive to not only deliver the best possible price, but also the highest quality service. We surveyed 40 cities, including many that are geographically close to Memphis, as well as utilities that are similar in size to MLGW. All costs covered in this survey are based on published rates effective January 2019.

MLGW started collecting data on rates in the early 1990s. Memphis continues to outperform many cities in terms of what customers pay for electricity, natural gas and water services.

MLGW’s financial management remains a driving force in keeping utility bills as low as possible. We are proud to present the 2019 Utility Bill Comparisons for Selected Cities. MLGW, a division of the City of Memphis, compiled the data. The survey compares residential, commercial and industrial electric, gas and water bills at various usage levels with rates in effect January 2019. Only FIRM RATES are used. Cities were selected on the basis of size and geographic location.
