TVA increases electricity rates

BESSEMER, AL (WBRC) - North Alabama and part of Bessemer will pay more for electricity soon.

The 8% rate increase takes effect October first for all TVA customers.

This means an average increase of $5.52 per month.

TVA says it is necessary to offset the cost of paying employee pensions and the cleanup of last year's coal-ash spill in Tennessee.
