TVA reducing bills due to drop in fuel costs
NORTH MISSISSIPPI — The Tennessee Valley Authority’s fuel cost will drop in February and reduce bills by about $1.50 for residential customers.
A TVA statement said the reduction will range from $1 to $2, based on usage.
The 1.5 percent decrease stems from a projection of milder weather. Knoxville-based TVA adjusts its fuel costs based on what it pays for coal, natural gas, reactor fuel and electricity supplied by other utilities.
The decrease follows a 1 percent monthly increase in TVA’s fuel cost for January. The fuel costs have increased by 16.8 percent since January 2009.
TVA supplies power to nearly 9 million people in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
