1. Account Summary. Includes your CEC account number, service location number, billing cycle, board district, and the name of the CEC trustee that represents you. A billing summary lists details such as your account balance, past due balance, current charges and due dates.


2. Meter Details. Here you will find your meter number, current and previous meter readings and reading dates. It also shows your total kilowatt-hour (kwh) usage for the month, and the number of service days.


3. Usage Chart. The usage chart compares your current month’s kwh usage with your usage during the same month last year.


4. Detail of Charges. A list of itemized charges associated with your account:


• Kilowatt-hour (kwh) charge, or your total monthly kwh usage x CEC’s per/kwh charge. This charge covers the costs involved in delivering electricity to your home from the substation, and includes powerline construction and maintenance, repairs, equipment, labor, administrative costs and other expenses associated with CEC’s daily operations. It also includes the cost of purchased power from Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC) based on CEC system demand. It does not cover unpredictable increases in wholesale generating costs due to the cost and delivery of generating fuels such as natural gas and coal.

• WFEC PCA Charge. The power cost adjustment (PCA) is paid directly to Western Farmer’s Electric Cooperative for the cost of wholesale power generation when those costs rise above what s covered in CEC’s base rate. The PCA fluctuates due to changes in the price of fuels used to generate electricity, such as coal and natural gas, as well as expense to deliver these fuels to the plant. Volatile fuel prices make it difficult for WFEC to predict its generating costs. The PCA allows electric utilities to pass these unpredictable increases or decreases on to the end user, and avoid setting base rates based on the speculation of future generating costs. The PCA ensures members pay the most accurate price based on current economic conditions. When generating costs dip below the baseline rate, the PCA appears as a credit on your electric bill.


• Meter Charge. This covers the cost of supplying and maintaining the meter and the meter loop for your individual service.


• Other Charges. Members with security lights, Valliant Telephone internet service, CEC storm shelter loans or energy efficiency loans will find these charges itemized here.


• Gross Receipts Tax. A 2 percent tax that is collected by CEC and paid in full to the state of Oklahoma. This tax benefits rural school districts where CEC powerlines and WFEC transmission lines are located.
