SCC approves reduced fuel rate for Kentucky Utilities
Effective for service rendered on and after July 1, 2020, the fuel factor will be $0.02168 per kilowatt-hour (kWh). For a typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month, it represents a decrease of $4.55 per month compared to the fuel rate a customer paid during the 2019-2020 fuel year.
The reduction helps offset a base rate increase of $9 million in annual operating revenue for Kentucky Utilities that was approved by the SCC on April 6 and went into effect on May 1. The April order also provided for a one-time refund of $1 million to customers resulting from a reduction in the company’s federal tax rate that took effect on January 1, 2018.
Kentucky Utilities provides electric service to approximately 28,000 customers in Wise, Lee, Russell, Scott and Dickenson counties.
