Oncor’s billing rates are made up of several different components. One of them, the Transmission Cost Recovery Factor or TCRF, is a charge passed through to all retail customers connected to Oncor’s transmission or distribution system. The charge is updated across each September and March and most customers will see a line item for this on their bill.
In September 2013, the charge for customers with secondary, greater than 10 kW, IDR meters paid $2.778674 per 4CP kW. In March, the charge increased by 26.56% or nearly 74 cents. The most recent charge of $3.516757 per 4CP kW will likely increase again in September.
For larger customers, this could be a decent price increase on TDSP charges and/or power factor penalties.
See below for an example of how the charges have increased since March 2013:
