Power Rates

At MUS, we strive to have the lowest rates possible for Morristown's residents and businesses.  MUS is billed by TVA on a time-of-use basis meaning that our rates are based on when the power is used during the day.  Certain times are more expensive than others and these are called onpeak and offpeak hours.  With exception of some large industrial customers, MUS does not bill our customers based on time-of-use.  However, it is still very helpful to keep rates low if we can strive to move unnecessary usage to offpeak times, such as washing and drying clothes, operating dishwashers, and even showers!  MUS' peak times are defined as such:

Onpeak hours:
2 p.m. to 8 p.m. during the months of April, May, June, July, Aug., Sept., & Oct.
5 a.m. to 11 a.m. during the months of Jan., Feb., March, Nov., & Dec.
(excludes weekends & Federal holidays: Memorial, Independence, Labor, Thanksgiving and Christmas days which are considered offpeak)

Fuel Cost Adjustment to Monthly Rates

TVA instituted a Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) effective October 1, 2006. The energy component of the firm rates will be adjusted in the monthly bill by the FCA. TVA recalculates the FCA each quarter and it can add or subtract to the firm rate monthly. Find more info on TVA FCA in this PDF.
