Rates & Fees
April 2018 Rate Schedule - The per kilowatt-hour price for electricity will be lower in April 2018, for Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative members. The decrease comes as the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Fuel Cost Adjustment goes down, and the energy charge transitions from the winter price.
Rates are subject to a Tennessee Valley Authority Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA). This mechanism allows TVA to adjust rates up or down as fuel and purchased-power costs rise and fall. It affects the energy (per kilowatt-hour) charges for all customers. MLEC retains NONE of the revenue from the FCA; the entire amount goes to TVA.
