TDSP (or TDU) charges refer to fees levied by Transmission and Distribution Service Providers (TDSPs) for the delivery of electricity from the power generation facilities to you as a customer of OnPoint Energy.
TDSP charges are separate from the charges for the actual electricity consumed, which are billed by the retail electricity providers. TDSP charges are itemized on your OnPoint Energy bill, and the rates vary by region and TDSP.
