What is the tracker fee on my bill each month and why do I have to pay it?

The tracker fee is a billing adjustment to cover the fluctuation cost of power we purchase and distribute from our power supplier, Hoosier Energy. The tracking mechanism recovers variable production cost (fuel- including coal and natural gas, wholesale power market purchases, operations and maintenance, and emissions regulations) incurred by Hoosier Energy during a specific period. This fee is per kWh and changes quarterly.
