Everyone has experienced increases in their power bills this year, but Chattooga County residents that are served by TVA through North Georgia Electric might have cause for complaint.

That’s because their power bills have gone up twice this year, meanwhile the President and CEO of TVA, Tom Kilgore got a pay raise of $200,000 this year.  TVA claims that their pay raises are in keeping with other utilities throughout the country. 

Kilgore was not the only executive at TVA to get a pay raise this year.  In the annual report of TVA to the White House Office of Management and Budget 54 executives got bonus’s this year of $25,000 or more.
