The ruling became effective June
Bennie Fuelberg, PEC's general manager, said PEC members will see a reduction of fuel charges on their September bills.
We are looking for a five to IO percent decrease un fuel cost),” Fuelberg said.
“Because of our power cost adjustment,” Fuelberg said, “whatever changes in fuel rates there are will show up in bills."
Fuelberg said 4.178 cents per kilowat hour is included in each member's base rate to pay fuel costs.
If fuel rates go below that amount, members receive credit.
Fuelberg said the reason the change won t show up sooner is because the PEC has not received lower rates from LCRA yet.
The PEC, w hich provides power to the Canyon I .ake area, and the Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative are among LCRA’s 41 wholesale customers. LCRA serves San Marcos, Kerrville and San Saba w ith retail electricity.
LCRA is appealing the PUC’s ruling to lower the rates the authorise can change for fuel casts
