What is a non-recurring fee?

Non-recurring fees are charges from your local distribution utility, or Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU), such as Oncor Electric Delivery, CenterPoint Energy, and Texas New Mexico Power, and may include items such as a new service initiation fee, a connection fee, a disconnection fee, or a meter-reading fee if you requested a meter reading outside of your normal billing cycle.

These charges are listed separately on your monthly bill and are not from Direct Energy. However, because we are your retail electric provider, we are required to pass them on to you.
