At BEC, one of our top priorities is providing the most reasonable electric rates possible to all of our member-owners.* In fact, it’s part of our mission.
Each billing period members are obligated to pay the following charges as a minimum, whether or not any energy is actually used:
- The availability charge
- Any applicable billing adjustments
- Any applicable service fees
Avoided wholesale power cost will be calculated by dividing the prior year’s total power purchase cost (excluding demand costs, transmission costs, ERCOT and related fees, and distribution costs) by the prior year’s total kWh’s purchased. The avoided cost will be adjusted once each calendar year, and the amount of the adjustment will be established no later than March 1.
