From our "TVA Loves Us More Than WE can Know" Dept.:

The Tennessee Valley Authority is shifting more of the cost of its electricity from industrial to residential customers, keeping power rates relatively stable for homeowners while giving the biggest businesses in the Valley rate reductions of 20 percent or more over the past six years, according to a new study of TVA rates.

A review of government rate information by Synapse Energy Economics found that TVA has shifted more than $1.4 billion from industry to homeowners and commercial customers from 2011 to 2016, costing the typical homeowner in Chattanooga an extra $164 a year in electricity costs.
