Power Cost Recovery Factor (PCRF)

 

The Public Utility Commission of Texas has approved a rate adjustment procedure which does not require formal hearings, nor the expense involved. This procedure is known as the Power Cost Recovery Factor.

 

The Power Cost Recovery Factor changes monthly and allows SWTEC to pass through the increases or decreases in fuel costs which are reflected in the wholesale power expense.

 

 

These charges are in addition to the SWTEC base rate.    Any decreases in wholesale power cost are passed on to you by way of a credit to your bill. On the other hand, any increases in wholesale owner cost are reflected on your bill as an additional charge. All of the fuel cost collected by SWTEC is passed directly on to our wholesale power supplier - West Texas Utilities Company.
