Security Light Charge

Device FCA

The Device FCA is determined by the Fuel Cost Adjustment set by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The amount of electricity used by a typical security light of each type is multiplied by the current FCA Charge to determine the Device FCA. To see the monthly FCA Rate visit the Residential Rates Page.
