Is there a charge every time I query data from Power BI Desktop?

I am querying data from Azure Synapse in Power BI Desktop. Does Azure charge my account every time I query data from Azure Synapse?.

If your PowerBI computer is outside the Azure network or in different Azure regions with Synapse, you are charged for network data egress over first 100GB/month.

Querying serverless SQL instances also generate a charge. 

Given your scenario, when you query data from Azure Synapse in Power BI Desktop, there may be associated costs depending on your specific Azure Synapse pricing plan and data usage.
