Effective May 2017

Ripley Power and Light’s customers enjoy some of the lowest electric rates in the country.

We buy our electricity from the Tennessee Valley Authority, which has a history of providing lower-cost electric power. The purchase of electricity, in fact, is a large amount of Ripley Power and Light’s electric cost. About 82 cents of every dollar paid by our customers for electricity is used to purchase energy from TVA.

Ripley Power and Light also offers a variety of commercial/industrial rate structures and incentives for industry and other large electric users.
