Notice Of Decreasing Fuel Cost

Jul 1st 2022
On July 1, Northcentral regrettably had to inform our community of a large rate increase directly related to the costs of generating fuel incurred by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA.) This, coupled with record heat-related energy consumption led to power bills unlike any we have seen before. Many in the community saw bills rise more than 40%. Northcentral saw its wholesale power bill to TVA increase nearly $4 million from July and $4.5 million from the same time last year. The costs were passed on to those consumers in the community in compliance with our contract with TVA.
Today we are pleased to announce that these fuel related costs are in decline. August fuel at 4.9 cents per kWh will fall to 3.2 cents per kWh for September. This, coupled with slightly milder temperatures, should ease the burden of the September electricity bill. This reduction will commence with first billing for usage in September 2022.
“We are pleased that the fuel component of our billing controlled by TVA have gone down. Though we had to share the burden of inflated costs over the summer, it’s good to know through our partnership with TVA we can also enjoy costs when they are in decline,” states Northcentral CEO Kevin Doddridge.
As the heat hasn’t completely left us, we can all take advantage of energy-saving measures at home to continue to reduce electricity consumption. For energy conservation tips, please visit our website at

Construction Has Begun In Our Latest Miller Phase!

Feb 21st 2020

Northcentral Electric Cooperative has contracted with Henkels and McCoy to install fiber in the highlighted area. High-speed, fiber internet services will soon be offered through our affiliate company, Northcentral Connect.  Some of this work will be overhead along the roads, but much of this work will be underground in our member’s front yards.  The underground installations are planned for areas in the public right of way close to our existing electric lines. Members will see orange duct being buried and pedestals and cabinets installed. Fiber will be then be installed, spliced, and tested.


Members who have registered their interest in internet service through Northcentral Connect’s website will receive an email to sign up for service as this construction nears completion. Each member that signs up will meet with design personnel to discuss their particular service needs on their property before a fiber “drop” is installed. Once the service is built, we will work to schedule an in-home installation at their convenience. 


Henkels and McCoy is the general contractor for this project, and they will have other companies working for them that should be marked as Northcentral Electric contractors. Vantage Point Solutions will be out with the crews directing and inspecting.  Everyone will be working together to complete this work and with care for our members’ properties, both before and shortly after construction.


We appreciate your patience as we bring this new great service to your doorsteps. We hope that you will choose Northcentral Connect to be your internet and phone provider by clicking “Sign Up” at There’s no obligation to pre-register your address. Once connected, subscribers will get free installation and equipment and 1 Gig speeds, all without data caps or contracts!


If you need help signing up, or if you see something that needs to be addressed regarding our construction please reach out to us by phone at 662-932-3500.
