WHAT IS PCA AND WHY IS IT INCLUDED IN MY BILL?
The Purchase Cost Adjustment (PCA) is an energy rate that fluctuates from month to month as MMLP’s purchased power costs increase or decrease. The fluctuation in the PCA is largely caused by several different factors at the generation plants, environments controls and local weather. The uncontrollable outside factors make it near impossible to predict the amount of revenue needed to cover the costs. Therefore, implementing the PCA allows MMLP to meet expenses related to purchased power and create stability in the overall rate structures and provide reliable power.
