Ala. Power calls it ‘fuel adjustment’ but still higher bill

Your Alabama Power bill will be a little higher in December. The company says it isn’t going up on rates, rather the additional cost is considered a “fuel adjustment” to cover higher fuel costs.

Beginning in December, the typical residential customer bill will increase by about $10 a month to cover the higher cost of fuel used to generate electricity. “Using diverse fuel types and sources has helped dampen the adjustment. We do not make money from fuel expenses,” Alabama Power said in a statement.
