TDU Delivery Charges are what your local Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) company charges each customer (ESI ID) for the cost of maintaining electricity poles & wires, meters, storm restoration, etc. These charges are approved by the Public Utility Commission of Texas and are passed through to you without any markup.* These charges apply to all customers (ESI IDs), serviced by the TDU, regardless of who their retail electricity provider is. The TDU Delivery Charges are displayed under a separate section on the monthly bill under the description “TDU Delivery Charges,” so it's easier to distinguish the Ambit Energy charges from your local utility company charges.
Your bill will change each month depending on the actual electricity usage. It will also reflect the actual TDU Delivery Charges that have been approved by the Public Utility Commission of Texas and billed to Ambit Energy from your local TDU that are in effect at the time your monthly invoice is created. These current TDU Delivery Charges may be different than the charges that were in effect at the time of your enrollment, and that were included in the average prices per kWh shown on your Electricity Facts Label ("EFL").
* Certain product plans may have partial TDU Delivery Fees included in part of the energy rate. Please see your EFL for specifics.
