Abbeville will have a new power provider beginning next year, and officials say residents will see substantial savings in their bills. The council approved a new contract with Baltimore-based Constellation Energy. City officials say the contract, which was approved with a unanimous vote, came after several months of negotiations. Councilman at Large Francis Plaisance says although residents will see lower prices, the exact amount of the savings is currently unknown. The new contract takes effect January 1.
