MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Alabama Power on Wednesday announced an upcoming rate adjustment that will impact the “typical residential customer.”

Starting in December, company officials said those customers will see their bills increase by about $10 a month.

Alabama Power said the move is because of the increased cost of fuel to generate electricity. The company said using diverse fuel types and sources have helped reduce the adjustment. They added that the company does not make money from fuel expenses.

“Fuel is used to generate electricity and we have to get that in order to provide the reliable service that our customers expect and deserve,” said Alabama Power representative Michelle Tims.

If you are a customer who’se not feeling the pressure, Tims says Alabama Power encourages you to participate and give to those who are through Project Share. You can do so by checking the box on your bill to give to project share.

Tims says once fuel prices adjust, Alabama Power will reevaluate its costs.
