TVA Fuel Cost Adjustment
TVA calculates and applies the Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA) quarterly as a charge to recover the costs of fuels used to generate electricity when those costs exceed what TVA budgeted.
The TVA board voted to start using the FCA as an effort to avoid using permanent rates hikes to offset temporary spikes in the cost of fuels used to generate electricity.
