Electric total monthly fuel cost decreases in March

Fayetteville Public Utilities (FPU) announced this week that the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) total monthly fuel cost will decrease March 1. Based on the average residential customer’s electric bill for 1,330 kilowatts (KWh), March’s bills will decrease by $1.68. 


In February, the average electric use of 1,330 kWh cost FPU customers $147.68. In March, the same electric use will cost customers $146.00. March’s fuel cost amount is about 7 percent lower than TVA’s three-year average for the month, largely due to milder weather in January and higher than anticipated hydro generation.


“We want to remind our customers that TVA’s winter season rates will remain in place through March 31. Even with the decrease in the total monthly fuel cost for March, electric bills may be higher due to additional electric use for heating and lighting,” says FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye.  


FPU encourages customers to download the Smart Hub app to their computer or mobile devices. SmartHub is a free service offered by FPU and gives customers access to historical and daily utility use information so that they can make decisions about how they use their utilities during peak times.

To help consumers with their energy costs, FPU offers a budget billing plan which averages monthly electric and natural gas bills. Call FPU at 433-1522 and speak with a customer service representative about the budget billing plan.
