What is the “availability fee?”
The availability fee is a fixed monthly charge designed to evenly distribute costs JCPB incurs when
providing electric service to customers. Examples of charges that are incurred are: meter reading,
maintaining customer records, capital and maintenance costs, etc. In other words, whether
customers use electricity or not it costs to provide electric service to each and every customer. All
customers (i.e. residential, commercial, and industrial) are charged an availability fee.

What is the “kWh charge?”
The kWh charge is the total amount of electricity your household consumes. For example, the kWh
charge is the cost of the electricity used to power all your electric appliances; such as, heating and
cooling systems, water heating, televisions, lighting, washers and dryers, refrigerators and freezers,
and other miscellaneous appliances.
Electricity is measured via a meter on the side of your home in kWh units. A watt is a basic measure
of electricity. A kilowatt is one­thousand watts. For example, a 100 watt light bulb used for 10 hours
equals one kilowatt hour.

What is the "FCA charge?"
Each month TVA implements a Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) that can fluctuate with TVA’s fuel and
purchased power costs. Therefore, electric rates may increase or decrease slightly based on the
amount TVA pays for fuel and purchased power. Learn more about TVA’s Fuel Cost Adjustment

What is the "DCRA"?
The Demand Cost Recovery Adjustment (DCRA) is an adjustment applicable to kWh usage based on
the prior month's wholesale power rates paid to TVA. The adjustment accounts for changes in peak
demand charges which are impacted by weather and customer usage behaviors. JCPB's peak
demand to TVA is computed on the single highest one hour of usage during the wholesale period.
JCPB will use a load factor calculation to determine the applicable rate, which may be a charge or
credit. The DCRA rate is applicable to residential Rate 22 and small commercial Rate 40.
