Fuel & Purchase Energy Charge
Historical Fuel & Purchase Energy Charges
The Fuel & Purchase Energy Charge (FPEC) covers the cost of fuel used for electric generation, purchased power, and associated costs. The FPEC remained unchanged since October 2016, but the fuel price 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.
The chart below shows a historical breakdown of the FPEC and the fluctuations over time. Please visit our frequently asked questions to learn more about the charges associated with your bill and the FPEC.
A customer's total fuel charge is calculated by multiplying the fuel unit charge FPEC by the total kilowatt-hours (kWh) on the bill.
