Could anybody explain what the fuel adjustment is that's on the electric bill. These utilities are outrageous!
Did anybody else have a huge jump?

Mine went from $270 to $391.
This happened last year and you should expect it to rise again for the month of January if it follows the pattern that it did last year. Mine was $565 for January 2013. I am really dreading the next bill. I think they raise them during the winter months as they wish. I do not think it's been cold enough to go up that much due to using more heat. I've lowered my thermostat but that didn't seem to have helped.

Before you get on here bashing the employees who pay high electric bills too, go to the boss at utility office and ask if employees get free cable and see what answer is....NO. They pay for cable just like everyone else. Do you not know that working people get nothing "free"! Even if they did what does that have to do with electric rates? You must not be on city sewage or you would be gripping about that! I pay electric with a usage charge, water and double that for sewer...wow it is expensive to crap? I guess the old out houses will be coming back. Lanterns might be in demand too!

Could someone elaborate on this? Are we seriously paying KU as well as Barbourville Utilities? And if so, why?
