How can the fuel adjustment charge portion on my bill be higher than the energy charge?
The energy charge
on your bill includes non fuel elements. Only 2.64 cents/ kWh is included on
the energy charge portion of the bill. This amount is not enough to cover the
full fuel cost and the fuel adjustment charge makes up the difference. As the
price of fuel increases on the world market, the fuel adjustment charge increases
and can at some times be greater than the per kWh energy charge.
(Note: the fuel
adjustment charge for domestic and general service customers has been subsidised by government and will
remain at 23.5375 cents/kWh until further notice)
