Utilities / Infrastructure
Person County has several utility systems serving the area. Most of the electrical, water and sewer capacity was designed to serve the textile industry. Over the years, a decrease in demand from the textile industry has resulted in a significant surplus of water and sewer capacity for most industrial properties. Natural gas is readily available in most locations.
Telecommunication services are provided by major national and regional carriers in both fiber and wireless formats.
