MLGW News Release
Survey shows Memphis has some of the lowest rates for utility bills
May 25, 2022
(May 26, 2022) – Memphis Light, Gas and Water recently completed its annual Comparative Rates Survey comparing Memphis’ combined electric, gas, and water utility rates with other cities around the United States. MLGW’s combined rates continue to be among the lowest in the country.

Year after year, Memphis proves its value to City and County residents by delivering electricity, natural gas, and water services at rates lower than most other municipalities. “We are proud to continue offering some of the lowest utility rates in the country,” says MLGW President and CEO J.T. Young. “Each year, we strive to deliver the best possible price and highest quality service.”

The Division surveyed 39 cities to complete the 2022 report. All costs covered in the survey are based on rates published and effective as of January 2022. This year’s ranking includes what a homeowner would pay for 1,000 kWh of electricity, 200 cubic feet (ccf) of gas, and 10 ccf of water.

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 440,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
