Frequently Asked Questions
How is my electricity bill calculated?Basically, your electricity bill is calculated by first multiplying the applicable Energy Charges shown on your Electricity Facts Label and your current month's kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage to determine your Energy Charges for the month. Then any monthly Base Charge, past due balances, one-time charges, and charges passed through from your Transmission & Distribution Utility (TDU Delivery Charges), and any taxes (state, local, gross receipts reimbursement) are added to give you the Total Amount Due on your bill. (For more information on how to calculate your bill and see a sample calculation, please click here.)
Which credit or debit cards do you accept?TXU Energy accepts all credit cards with the Visa, MasterCard, and American Express logo, as well as most debit cards containing the Pulse, Accel, NYCE or STAR logos on the back of the card, if your account is eligible to pay using these types of payments.

What is average monthly billing?Average Monthly Billing is a program for our residential customers that helps smooth out seasonal highs and lows in your monthly electricity bills so you have more predictable monthly payments.
With this program, you don't pay less or more. Over the course of the year, you'll pay the same on this program as you would if you weren't on the program. Your bill amount will vary a small amount each month, but it will be much more predictable and easier to budget for. You'll have peace of mind knowing that instead of dealing with seasonal fluctuations that could be as much as hundreds of dollars.
