Your Electric Bill Explained
If you are a Lubbock Power & Light customer, your monthly City of Lubbock Utilities bill includes a section for your LP&L electric service. All other utility services are run by the City of Lubbock.
Depending on your rate class, your electric bill may include the following:

- Energy Usage (kWh) – Also referred to as the “base rate.” The cost for delivering electricity to your home and for operating and maintaining the system.
- Energy Demand (kW) – amount necessary to support electrical infrastructure to meet the peak demand for electricity.
- Power Cost Recovery Factor (kWh) – Also known as PCRF; the actual cost LP&L pays to purchase and generate electricity, passed through to customers with no mark-up.
- Franchise Fee – the amount paid to the City in order for LP&L to place distribution lines and meters in the public right-of-way.
- Taxes – applicable City (1.5%), County (0.5%) and State (6.25%) tax – most residential customers have a city tax rate of 1.5%, while most commercial customers have a City, County and State tax, totaling 8.25%.
