Electric Rate Information

TVA produces electricity and sells it to distributors, like KUB, that deliver electricity to homes and businesses. (TVA is KUB's single provider of electricity).

More than 80 cents of every dollar electric customers pay KUB goes to purchase power from TVA. KUB's margin (the portion of electric rates we keep to maintain and operate the system) is less than 20 cents on the dollar.

As TVA's costs for non-controllable items such as coal, natural gas, and purchased power rise and fall, TVA passes 100 percent of the cost increase or decrease along to distributors through its Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA). TVA may make adjustments each month, as needed, to reflect the difference in projected and actual fuel costs.

KUB passes 100 percent of TVA increases/decreases to customers, therefore, KUB residential electric rates will vary each month. A customer's bill will also vary from month to month based on the amount of electricity consumed. Factors that impact consumption include weather, individual usage habits, and the size and energy efficiency of the customer's home.

The fuel cost adjustment will also impact those KUB customers who are billed each month for private outdoor lighting. The charges for the private outdoor security lights will automatically adjust as the TVA fuel cost adjustment moves rates up or down.  

Natural Gas Rate Information

KUB purchases natural gas on the open market for resale to customers. Although market prices do fluctuate, KUB purchases natural gas throughout the year to smooth out market prices. We then simply add the cost of delivering gas to the wholesale rate without any additional markup. This method allows KUB to maintain a reliable supply of natural gas for its customers while keeping costs as low and smooth as possible.
