An Explanation of Monthly Charges


Meter Charge - This fixed fee recovers a portion of the cost required to deliver power to your home or business. Whether a meter turns or not, Choctaw Electric must pay for the fixed cost of having safe and reliable service available. This fee includes the cost of maintaining the infrastructure like poles, substations, transformers, power lines, upgrading or replacing equipment and labor costs.

KWH Charge - This is billed based on the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity you use, and consists of two elements:


• A portion of the wholesale cost of the electricity delivered to your home or business.


• The portion of the cost to build and maintain the electric distribution system that is not captured in the meter charge.


Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) - The PCA is billed based on the number of kilowatt-hours of electricity you use. The PCA varies from month to month to compensate for regular fluctuations in the price of generation and transmission. PCA is paid in full to our wholesale energy supplier, Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC). The PCA reflects the actual cost to generate electricity based on the current price of generating fuels, namely natural gas and coal.
