CURRENT ELECTRICITY RATES
View an abbreviated summary of current rates and charges. All rates are subject to TVA Fuel Cost Adjustment (please reference separate schedules).
TVA FUEL COST ADJUSTMENT
Most of TVA’s power supply comes from fuels used to make electricity – nuclear, coal, oil and natural gas. When the prices of these fuels change – because of weather, the economy and the global supply and demand for fuels – TVA’s costs change. Many utilities use similar mechanisms to adjust their rates to reflect changes in their fuel costs.
Putting all of the fuel in one category is a clearer and more transparent way to reflect fuel costs. This is part of an overall change in the pricing structure of electricity agreed to by TVA and the region’s local power companies.
