A bit more about utility companies
Oncor, CenterPoint, AEP Central, AEP North and Texas-New Mexico Power Company (TNMP) are the 5 utility companies that serve Texas. They’re responsible for getting electricity from generators to your home, and maintaining and repairing power lines.

How delivery charges are calculated
Your bill has two parts to it, the cost of the energy itself and the utility company’s delivery charges. Delivery charges make up 30 to 40% of your monthly bill.
A utility company’s charges are estimated to reflect how much it will cost to maintain the grid. These estimates are submitted for review and approval by the PUCT.
