Pedernales Electric Cooperative to increase transmission cost


Pedernales Electric Cooperative customers will see an increase in their monthly bills, as the transmission cost of service is due to increase beginning March 1, according to a news release from the nonprofit utility cooperative.

Rising from $0.01158 per kilowatt-hour, or kWh, to $0.01256 per kWh, the new rate will cause a less than 1 percent hike in an average customer’s bill.

Residential members averaging 1,000 kWh should expect an increase of about 98 cents per month to their bill, according to the release.

Statewide transmission cost has increased more than 111 percent since 2009 and is expected to increase by 3 percent or more in 2018, according to the release.
