Fuel Cost Adjustment

The Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) is a per kilowatt hour charge by TVA. It allows TVA to recover costs associated with the volatility of market-based fuels (coal, natural gas) and purchased energy costs. The amount of the fuel cost is determined by calculating the difference between the amount TVA expected to pay for fuel in a given month (included in base rates) and the costs they actually incur.

Beginning October 1, 2009, the fuel cost began being calculated monthly rather than quarterly. For the month of May 2014, the rate for residential members is .02811 cents per kilowatt hour used.

For residential members, here are a few examples of the fuel cost for the month of May 2014;

  • 1,000 kilowatts at .02811 = $28.11
  • 1,400 kilowatts at .02811 = $39.35
  • 2,500 kilowatts at .02811 = $70.28

You have control. By lowering your consumption you can reduce the amount of your electric bill and the fuel cost. Here are some points to remember.

Increased usage can be because more heating is required due to colder temperatures, you use more hot water, or cook more during holidays. Knowing What Uses Watts can help you control electric usage. Read more...

Explanation of Charges

Member charges are based on the Cooperative's cost of providing certain services to individual members. Members using these services pay for them so rates may be kept low for other members who do not need these special services.The preceding list does not include all charges. Other charges may be applicable in special situations. Deposits and charges are subject to change.
