Why do I now see the PUC Assessment on my bill?

The PUC Assessment is a new line item on your bill. This fee is assessed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas, and it has always been a part of your monthly price per kilowatt hour. The reason you now see it is because we have unbundled the energy charge portion of your bill to distinguish which fees are assessed by Direct Energy and which are assessed by your local utility company.
