Determine your estimated energy bill with this electricity bill calculator
Your electricity bill most likely has several types of charges depending on your location and energy provider. In most cases, you will see three types of charges: energy charges, “TDSP passthrough” also called delivery charges and various taxes. Energy charges are based on how much electricity you used in that period multiplied by your electricity rate. Delivery charges are set by your utility and for the most part, are out of your control. Taxes on your bill go to your city and district but are also out of your control.
If you are in a deregulated energy market like Texas, then you can control the energy charge portion of your bill by comparing plans selecting the best rate for your home or business. If you are a business you can potentially lower your bill by reducing your load factor. Learn more about load factor here. Lastly, everyone can reduce their electricity bill by simply using less.
