Fuel & Purchase Energy Charge

The Fuel & Purchase Energy Charge (FPEC) covers the cost of fuel used for electric generation, purchased power, and associated costs. The FPEC had remained unchanged since October 2016, but the price of fuel is now the highest it has been in 7 years due to the increased demand brought on by supply chain issues from the COVID-19 pandemic.

A customer's total fuel charge is calculated by multiplying the fuel unit charge (FPEC) by the total kilowatt-hours (kWh) on the bill.
