For members with Distributed Generation/Solar, any generation (kWh's) returned to the SBEC distribution system will be credited at SEBC's avoided wholesale power cost and listed on their monthly bill as a Distributed Generation Credit (DG Credit). They will see the avoided wholesale power cost calculated on their bills as a Distributed Generation Credit and the rate per kWh for that month will appear to the side. The avoided wholesale power cost is the cost San Bernard EC would have incurred had we been required to purchase the energy from our wholesale power supplier, South Texas Electric Cooperative (STEC).

The avoided wholesale power cost is calculated by excluding our transmission costs from the monthly G&T Charge.
