Notice from Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC):. "The cost of electricity that Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) delivers to our member-owners has increased significantly over the past few months. These unexpected increases have resulted from volatility in the cost of fuel used to generate electricity, and ongoing global supply chain issues. Beginning today, July 1, 2022, typical residential members will see an estimated 3% increase in their monthly electric bill. This change will be reflected in the Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) line item on the bill, and is directly related to the increase in electricity supply costs as described. Following this increase, effective August 1, 2022, REC’s typical residential members will see an additional approximately 10% increase. Concurrently, businesses and commercial members who are subject to the PCA will see an estimated increase of 13% to 16%.
