Fuel Cost Adjustment Factor (Fuel Surcharge)

The Fuel Cost Adjustment is a mechanism designed to recover the cost of fossil fuel oils used in the generation of electricity.

The Fuel Cost Adjustment Factor is structured as follows:

C x (A-B)

FCAF = Fuel Cost Adjustment Factor commonly referred to as Fuel Surcharge
A = the current month’s average fuel price (EC$/IG)
B = the average fuel price at base tariff (EC$/IG)
C = Current Month’s fuel usage (IG)
D = Current Month’s Sales (kWh)

Fuel Surcharge on bills = Total units consumed * FCAF
