These are charges assessed by a Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) for the delivery of electricity to a customer over poles and wires and through other TDU facilities.
Below are the Delivery Charges of your Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) as of April 23, 2020. These charges are total amounts assessed by a TDSP for the delivery of electricity to a customer over poles and wires and other TDSP facilities not including discretionary charge. These delivery rates are passed through to the customer without markup. They are included in your bill from your retail electricity provider (REP).
Delivery Charges are approved by the Public Utility Commission of Texas and apply to all residential customers, serviced by the TDSP, regardless of who their retail electricity provider is. The Delivery Charges are displayed under a separate section on the monthly bill under the description “Delivery Charges” so it's easy find them.
Certain charges are billed on a monthly basis, and some are billed on a usage basis (per kilowatt hour). For this reason, the total Delivery Charges amount will vary each month depending on your monthly kilowatt-hour usage. See the table below for an itemized listing of the detailed charges that make up Delivery Charges in your area.
