NORTH MISSISSIPPI — The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) says its fuel costs are up due to higher demand in colder than normal temperatures and that means monthly residential bills will increase between $2.50 and $5.50.

TVA said in a Feb. 10 statement the increase takes effect in billing periods that begin March 1. The upward fuel cost adjustment is the first since Oct. 2008.

The adjustment is the way TVA manages changing fuel costs and the cost of purchased power. TVA began the fiscal year Oct. 1 with an 8 percent general rate increase.

TVA is the nation’s largest public utility with nearly nine million consumers in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
