“Edenton’s electric utility offers electricity at reasonable rates and meets high standards of reliability.”
~ Glenn Andersen,
The town and county have ample utility resources to support growing businesses. The town provides electricity to both the town and county and also provides sewer service to those living in the town and in some areas of the county, including the Edenton Chowan Partnership’s Airport Industrial Park Phase II. The county provides water to all business and residences in the county. In addition, many of the resident of the county and town also have access to natural gas. Utility rates run below the national average and reduce the cost of doing business in Chowan County. Special electricity rates are available for certain businesses that are high users and there are special considerations for those companies that provide backup electrical generation during high demand times.
At the present time, there are also three Internet providers in the County-Century Link, Mediacom, and Net-Change.com. All three provide high speed access to support the needs of the business community. Century Link and Mediacom also provide telephone service throughout the county and both offer packages that are specifically designed to support business activities. Mediacom, Dish, and DirectTV also offer a variety of TV viewing packages.
