All electric companies in Pharr, TX create their own electricity plans and sets their own electricity rates. The final rates for each plan are only known after all the fees, credits and other adjustments the provider includes in the plan are calculated. Each electricity plan contains its own rate formula. The electricity rate you actually achieve through this plan will be different each month depending on how much electricity you use for the billing cycle. The even “fixed” electricity rates in Pharr, Texas change from month to month.
Here is an example of how the electricity bill is calculated for one Pharr electricity plan. If you review the plan’s terms you will notice five elements that go into the final electricity bill.
- Energy Rate = 5.80 ¢ per kWh
- Base Charge = $7.95 per month
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = $3.42 per month
- TDU Electric Delivery Charge = 3.697 ¢ per kWh
- Credit for Billing cycle for usage greater than 2000 kWh = $40 per month
The two flat fees ($7.95 per month and $3.42 per month) insure that the average electricity rate will always be higher when you use less electricity. That’s just how the math works. The $40 bill credit that occurs only after you hit 2000 kWhs makes your average electricity rate go down substantially just as you hit that target in the billing period.
The resulting electricity rates are:
- 11.8¢/kWh @500 kWh
- 10.6¢/kWh @1000 kWh
- 8.1¢/kWh @2000 kWh
Unfortunately, if you miss the 2000 kWh bill credit by just 1 kWh your average electricity rate will be very different. Your electric bill goes from $161 to $201 changing your electricity rate from 8.1¢/kWh to 10.1¢/kWh
