2018 - Blue Ridge Mountain EMC Announces TVA Wholesale Rate Increase

Blue Ridge Mountain EMC (BRMEMC) announces that effective October 1, 2018, TVA will be increasing its wholesale rate across all Residential and General Power (GSA) rate classes resulting in an average increase of 1.53% in each residential Member’s bill and an average increase of 1.64% in each GSA1 (Smallest Commercial) Member’s bill, depending upon usage. Impacts to GSA 2 and GSA 3 consumers will vary depending upon demand and energy load characteristics. BRMEMC’s Board has determined that we must pass this TVA increase through to our Members, as the EMC does not have sufficient resources to absorb yet another annual increase from TVA. It has been five years since BRMEMC last implemented a retail rate increase for its own benefit.
