About GEUS

In 1891, GEUS became the first municipally owned electric utility in Texas. More than a century later, in 2001, it also became the first municipally owned cable television and high-speed internet operation in the state. GEUS provides these services to over 30,000 consumer-owners in the Greenville, Texas area, which is about 50 miles east of Dallas. One of the unique aspects of GEUS is that it is governed by an autonomous board of trustees appointed by the Greenville City Council. This structure was made possible by the Texas Legislature in 1989. To learn more about GEUS' 130+ years of public power history or the services it offers, please visit its website at
