Fayetteville Public Utilities’ (FPU) electric customers will see higher December bills as a result of the increases in the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) winter season energy rate and the total monthly fuel cost.

For the average residential electric bill of 1,330 kilowatts (kWh), the total increase is $3.22

In November, the average residential electric bill for 1,330 kWh was $144.96. In December, the same electric use will cost $148.18.

 “December’s fuel cost amount is about two percent lower than TVA’s three-year average for the month, largely due to lower purchased power rates and higher-than-expected hydro generation,” said FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye.

Winter season rates begin on December 1st and remain in place through March 31. The total monthly fuel cost will continue to change monthly.

To help consumers with their energy costs, FPU offers a budget billing plan to average monthly electric and natural gas bills. Please call FPU’s Customer Service Department at 931-433-1522 for more information about budget billing.
