Default Energy Cost Reduction for Missile Spells

How do you handle the energy cost reduction for high spell skill levels when casting missile spells? The cost reduction on the first round of charging is straightforward. I am wondering, however, if you get the cost reduction on each subsequent round of charging. I suspect not.

Officially, you get the cost reduction only on the first turn. It's not an uncommon house rule to declare otherwise.

Correct. That's a house rule in Peter Dell'Orto's Felltower that is used frequently--you can build it up for 3 rounds and get the discount each round.

Technically, it's once per Spell Cast. A possible compromise for Missile Spells would be to allow for added cost savings if you make additional spell skill rolls, that way the added savings have a, ahem, cost.

Energy Cost Reduction
The higher your base skill with a spell, the less energy it
requires to cast. If you know it well enough, you can cast
it at no cost! Exception: Blocking spells (p. 14) always have
full cost.
Calculate the entire cost to cast a spell for instance, by
multiplying cost for the size of the subject or area affected
before applying energy cost reductions for high skill. pg9 spells

As i see sum the total cost of the missile and reduce the cost one time only
