Fuel Rate Adjustments for Electric and Natural Gas Customers

Electric customers of City Utilities can expect to pay approximately $5.70 per 1000 kWh less for fuel during the months of October through March, compared to the same period last year. The decrease is due primarily to lower fuel and purchased energy costs. The adjustment is part of the normal semi-annual process that aligns projected fuel costs used to produce electricity for customers with actual fuel costs.

Through a similar adjustment mechanism, natural gas customers can expect to pay less for natural gas over the next six months, as well. Residential customers using average volumes of natural gas should pay $1.12 less per month than projected gas costs, based on expected residential customer usage averaging 101 therms per month. Natural gas prices are adjusted monthly to match projected prices for the fuel, and twice a year the rates are realigned through the recovery adjustment.
