The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) announced a 1.5 percent retail rate increase, effective October 1, 2017. Warren RECC members will see a slight increase in their electric bills. For example, a member using 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity will notice an increase of approximately $1.70.
Warren RECC will not add its own local rate increase. The last time Warren RECC had a local rate increase was in 2011. “We are doing everything in our power to keep costs as affordable as possible for our members. Through cost-saving efforts, combined with growth, we have been able to maintain service and reliability without having to add a local rate increase for six years. We realize that low rates and high reliability are the lifeblood of our local economy,” said Scott Ramsey, President and CEO of Warren RECC.
Warren RECC offers a variety of options to help lower electric bills. Whether its economic development credits from TVA, rebates on higher efficiency equipment, or tips to use energy more wisely, the cooperative offers these tools for the members to use.
