TDSP Charges from Oncor in Dallas

Dallas TDSP Charges:
TDU Delivery Charge
3.135 cents per kWh
TDU Delivery Charge
$3.42 per billing cycle

Transportation Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) charges are what utility providers charge you for delivering power to your home. These rates over the wires, poles, meters, and other equipment used to deliver your power and are separate from your base energy charge.

If you live in Dallas, then ONCOR is your Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU). The Public Utility Commission (PUC) of Texas has to approve the amount your TDU can charge you for energy distribution.

But what makes understanding TDSP charges so important, and what many people fail to understand, is that they are fixed costs. They are consistent on every electricity bill in dallas, regardless of the electricity provider. People often think these are just tacked on fees used to inflate bills, but actually they are fixed costs passed through to customers regardless of which electric companies in Dallas you use for energy. That means that to really find which electric companies are the cheapest, you have to focus on the energy charges listed in the fine print.

Electricity Plan Types in Dallas

Now that we have explained TDSP rates, the second thing to consider is the type of electricity plans a customer can buy. Each plan will likely end up having different rate scales. There are three types of electricity plans you can choose from when selecting an energy plan that best fits your needs.

Fixed Rate Electricity Plan in Dallas

Lock in low energy rates for a period of months ranging from 9 to 36. Be aware that these contracts typically charge an early termination fee if you switch before your term ends.

Variable Rate Electricity Plan in Dallas

Month to month contracts with rates that vary. You won't have to worry about deposits or early termination fees, but rates can decrease or increase from month to month.

Pre-Paid Electricity Plan in Dallas

You deposit money into an account that your energy company bills directly depending on your use. Keep in mind there are often daily charges with these plans. Rates typically change from month to month.

There are other kinds of energy plans, such as green plans, or plans that come bundled with things like Smart Thermostats, but for the most part, these three electricity plans are the main three kinds of choices available.
