Effective October 1, 2023, the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) increased wholesale rates to all distributors, including Tri-County Electric, by 7%. Tri-County Electric will pass the TVA increase through, resulting in an impact of approximately $6.50 increase/month for the average residential account of 1250 kWh/month. While this is a TVA pass through, not a Tri-County Electric increase, Tri-County Electric members have not had a rate increase since TVA’s last rate increase on October 1, 2018.
