Rising national energy costs cause Cobb EMC bills to increase

Cobb EMC’s monthly Wholesale Power Adjustment (WPA) increases to $.002 per kWh, effective in January, to recover rising wholesale electric generation and transmission costs.

“Our average household uses roughly 1,000 kWh each month, so this change would mean a difference of about $2.00 on their bill,” said Chip Nelson, President and CEO of Cobb EMC.

Cobb EMC’s WPA, which has been set at or below zero since September 2014, increases or decreases as necessary to follow changes in wholesale power costs.

“We’re dedicated to controlling costs for members,” said Nelson. “If we see wholesale prices drop, you’ll see the WPA drop, as well.”
