Tennessee Valley Authority Total Fuel Charge

TVA calculates and applies a Fuel Charge as part of the per kilowatt hour rate each month to recover the costs of fuels used to generate electricity when those costs exceed what TVA budgeted. The Fuel Charge can also work in reverse - when TVA budgets more for fuel used to generate electricity than is actually spent, the Fuel Charge will be applied and subtracted from the base rate.

The TVA board voted to start using such Fuel Charges in an effort to avoid using permanent rates hikes to offset temporary spikes in the cost of fuels used to generate electricity.
