#MayDayTVA! Call out #TVA!

Say NO to TVA's Rate Scheme!

TVA is proposing changes to their rate structure that will mean less control over your power bill, more fees, and higher monthly bills. On May 10, the TVA Board of Directors will consider this rate proposal in Muscle Shoals, Alabama - a very inaccessible place for the majority of TVA's customers. Despite our request, TVA is not hosting public forums and they denied extending the public commenting period beyond 30 days, which we felt was too short for a decision that will impact millions of customers in the TVA service territory. Join us in sounding the alarm!

With TVA's proposed rate change, the average electricity customer could likely pay, in total, over $350/year before they even flip a switch ($29.24/month). This charge comes from what is called a mandatory or fixed fee - a flat charge you must pay every month, regardless of how much energy you use. The amount of your exact monthly fee depends on who your Local Power Company (LPC) is, and depending on their billing style, you may not even see this charge itemized!

The new proposal from TVA prioritizes large industrial customers, at the expense of residential and small business customers. Recent studies show that over the past 5 years TVA has shifted $1.4 billion in costs from industrial to residential customers, and this proposal will continue that trend.

JOIN US in sounding the alarm to let the TVA Board know that you do NOT support this new rate structure proposal.
