What is the franchise fee listed on my bill?

Depending on where you live, you may be charged a city fee based on a percentage of your monthly electric usage. Berkeley Electric does not make a profit on the collection of these fees. This a pass-through cost, from the members within a city’s jurisdiction to that city, as a requirement of our franchise agreement with that city.
