Our Rates Have Not Changed
Every year in the colder months members can be surprised by high bills. There are only two factors that contribute to an electric bill. 1.) The rate. 2.) The amount of kilowatts used. Importantly, our rates have not changed since October of 2013. At that time, the power cost recovery factor was raised by 6/10 of 1 penny. Following, is a chart depicting WCEC’s historical rates since 2002.
For most northeast Texas residential users when cold weather strikes the amount of kWh consumed goes up - and the bill follows. At WCEC, we offer a few ways to help members better manage energy usage and/or high bills. The SmartPower pre-pay program takes the surprise out of the equation, because members can see exactly what they are using at all times. Average billing is also a way that members can insulate against high bills. And, WCEC offers energy audits and an energy efficiency rebate program for those that want to conserve. To learn more about any of these, call us at 903-763-2203. Or, read more here.
