*The PCRF charge found on your bill is a Power Cost Recovery Factor that is designed to recover the City of San Marcos' costs to buy electricity from our wholesale power providers. These costs include the administration of the electrical grid by ERCOT and generation, transmission, and transformation costs from our wholesale power providers. The City passes these costs on to you without markup or profit.
