Elimination of End-Use Wholesale Rate Structure and Introduction of Time-Of-Use Pricing for Electricity at the Wholesale Level
On July 29, 2010, TVA issued a final environmental assessment (EA) and finding of no significant impact (FONSI) in regard to the pricing structure for electricity TVA provides to distributors in the TVA power service area. In the past, TVA rates for distributors did not reflect the seasonal or time-of-use disparities and cost variations in the production of electricity, nor encourage distributors to manage their peak demands for electricity. In addition, the end-use wholesale structure required TVA to bill distributors based on compilations of millions of separate meters readings and varying processes that were difficult to verify independently.
Under the selected alternative, TVA will implement a time differentiated pricing structure for the electricity provided to power distributors in the TVA power service area, and move away from the current end-use wholesale rate structure. In addition, retail rates will be revised to reflect wholesale changes.
