Lower electric fuel costs expected in March

Fayetteville Public Utilities (FPU) announced this week that the total monthly fuel cost will decrease in March by $1.64 on the average electric bill for 1,330 kilowatts. This brings the average residential electric bill to $143.65 for the month. The same kilowatt use in February cost residential consumers $145.29.

According to FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye, TVA’s residential total monthly fuel cost amounts have fallen a total of $4.70 since the beginning of the year.

March electric rates continue to reflect TVA’s winter period rate schedule. TVA’s winter season rates began on December 1 and will remain in place through March 31. April and May are transition months where TVA rates are traditionally lower.
