The PUC says the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA)—better known as the tax bill approved by the GOP-controlled Congress and signed into law last December by President Donald Trump—along with an annual fixed cost adjustment (FCA) and annual power cost adjustment (PCA) will trigger a 7.06 percent decrease in electric rates. Here's the breakdown:
  • The TCJA will cause a decrease of $2.15 on the monthly bill of a typical residential customer using 950 kilowatt-hours per month. You can read more about that change by clicking here.

  • The FCA will cause a decrease of about $3.60 a monthly power bill of an average residential customer. Click here to read up on the adjustment.
