Understanding your commercial energy bill

If you have questions about your commercial energy bill or want to take advantage of EPB’s free business services to help you get the most value for the energy you use, please contact EPB Commercial Energy Services.

Your company’s commercial energy bill is calculated using the following components:

  • Commercial Rate Class – Business customers are categorized among different rate classes based on the magnitude of their energy use. You can find your rate class in the upper right-hand corner of your bill.
  • Kilowatt hours used – The total number of kilowatt hours of power your company used during the billing cycle.
  • Kilowatt hour rate – The rate charged per kilowatt hour. This varies among rate classes.
  • Fuel Cost Adjustment – TVA adjusts this multiplier each month to reflect the current market cost of the fuel (coal and natural gas) used to generate power. The Fuel Cost Adjustment varies among rate classes.
  • Demand Charge – All but the smallest commercial energy customers also pay a demand charge which reflects metered demand each month. This varies among rate classes.
