I recently purchased a condo and my electricity bill has spiked over the last month. I notice there are 3 subsections under "Electricity Supply Svc": "Generation", "Transmission", and "Fuel." I'm curious as to what the "fuel" means. Is this different than paying for gas? Because I thought my HOA fees already cover gas. I have been using the heater more often recently, but I figured my heater is gas only. Can someone explain what this "fuel" means?

Your HOA fee probably covers the service of the furnace itself, not your monthly fee for whatever you use in your apartment.

Dominion Power is an electric bill only. The fuel charge is the cost for Dominion to transport the power. Basically , they pass their cost on to the customer.

I'm not sure if this is what you meant, so just to be clear the fuel charge is the cost of fuel used to generate the electricity, including the cost of transporting it to the generating plants.

The back of the bill explains all of the costs.

You may wish to read the information on Dominion's website about understanding your bill. They also have a bill calculator worksheet you can use.
