How to Read Your Bill

  
  1. Facilities Charge: Facility fees are used to cover operating, maintenance and administrative costs for the entire electrical distribution system. 
  2. Power Cost Adjustment: This charge offsets any increase or decrease in the cost of energy and is a direct flow-thru from our power provider.
  3. E-Bill Credit: If you're signed up for electronic billing, you receive a $.50/month credit to your account.
  4. E-Newsletter Credit: If you're signed up for electronic newsletters, you receive a $.50/month credit to your account.
  5. State Tax: 7% Indiana Sales Tax is added to your bill
  6. Total Current Balance Due: Total balance of account after all charged and credits are calculated.
  7. Roundup: If you're part of Operation Roundup, your bill will be rounded up to the next dollar. The "round up" money is used as part of the Operation Roundup program to help non-profits in your community.
  8. Previous Amount Due: Total amount that was due from your previous billing cycle.
  9. Thank you for your payment: Notes all payments made since the last billing cycle.
  10. Total Amount Due: After all payments, credits and charges are calculated, this amount is the final total that is due to KV REMC for the current billing cycle.
  11. KWH Used: KWH is a measurement of electrical energy. A kilowatt-hour equals 1,000 watts of energy used for one hour. One 100 watt light bulb burning for 10 hours consumes one kilowatt-hour. KWH used indicates how many kilowatts of energy you consumed in the current and previous billing periods.
