How will I be billed? A line item for participation in Green Power Switch will appear on your monthly power bill.
How will my electricity bill be calculated? Green Power Switch is sold to residential consumers in 150-kilowatt-hour blocks (about 12 percent of a typical household’s monthly energy use). Each block adds $4 to the customer’s monthly power bill. Consumers may buy as many blocks as they wish. Green Power Switch is also marketed to commercial and industrial consumers, who may buy blocks based on the amount of energy they use.
How much will my total electricity service cost, including utility charges? Each block of renewable energy purchased adds $4 to the consumer’s monthly power bill. Commercial and industrial consumers may buy blocks based on the amount of energy they use, and therefore total costs for these consumers vary.
Will my electricity rates change over time? TVA may alter, amend or end Green Power Switch at any time. Participating consumers will be notified by mail one month in advance of any rate changes.
What fuel sources will be used to generate my power? See other side.
