2022 Village of Genoa Sewer Rate Increase

Please read the following descriptions of utility bill fees/charges below:                   

“Excise Tax”

Electricity customers pay an excise tax on their kilowatt-hour usage. This tax is levied by the State of Ohio, and is paid to them. The Village of Genoa does not obtain any revenue for this charge.


Water customers have a fee labeled “Infrastructure” on their utility bill. This charge is a minimum of $2.00 and an additional $2.00 for every 8,000 gallons used. This charge is levied by the City of Oregon to pay for new improvements to their water treatment plant. These improvements are necessary to control algae bloom conditions and improve disinfection procedures.

“Electric Generation Charge”

Electric customers will notice an Electric Generation Charge on utility bills. This charge has previously been included in your electric rate, the new billing system (used from 2020 onward) now itemizes this specific fee and lists it separately.

This charge is used to maintain the Village’s diesel-powered electricity generators, which provide electricity for the system during peak hours throughout the year. The system reduces the need to buy electricity from the grid at peak hour rates (when electricity is often most expensive), thereby saving customers money and ultimately reducing your electricity expenses over the year.


2022 Village of Genoa Water Rate Increase

As of January 1st, 2018 the electric rates reflect the increased cost of purchased power and service fees.  The Village of Genoa has not raised the base rate for electric in several years.

The Infrastructure Cost for water reflects an increase of the water purchased from the City of Oregon. This is to cover their infrastructure project costs for improvements to the water plant, which controls algae bloom conditions and improved disinfection procedures.

Listed below is the Consumer Confidence for Water. This report is mandated by the Ohio EPA and shows the water quality for the Village water system.
