About Our Rates

There is a power cost adjustment (PCA)charge on each bill.  The power cost adjustment is a variable energy rate that can fluctuate quarterly based on the cost of creating electricity and delivering it to PPS.  The PCA is used to prevent constant fluctuations in our base rates.

A customer charge appears on the bill each month.  The customer charge covers the cost of the minimum amount of equipment, infrastructure and manpower needed to deliver electricity to your home, regardless of how much electricity you use.  The current residential customer charge is $14.75 per month.

Effective January 1, 2023, only a person’s primary residence will be exempt from sales tax on electric bills because of changes by the General Assembly.

If you have only one electric meter with Paducah Power System, and that account is your primary residence, you do not need to take any action. You will automatically receive an exemption from sales tax on your electric bill, and there will be no changes to your billing.

If you have multiple meters in your name you should click the link below to submit a form to PPS to seek an exemption for your primary residence.  If you have questions about this, please contact our Customer Service Department at 270-575-4000.
