Power Cost Adjustment
Power Cost Adjustment factor is printed each month on your bill. Each month, Claiborne Electric pays a power cost adjustment to its power supplier. Members pay this power cost adjustment on monthly electric bills. The power cost adjustment varies from month to month, based on the cost of fuel used to generate electricity. A mix of coal, natural gas and hydro fuel is used each month, depending on which is the least expensive.
