SCHEDULE F: Commercial Service


This schedule is available in all territories served by the Cooperative, subject to the Cooperative’s established Service Rules and Regulations.

Motors in excess of one (1) horsepower shall be connected to operate on not less than 208 volts. Motors having a rated capacity in excess of 10 horsepower must be three-phase. However, single-phase motors in excess of 10 horsepower may be served under this Schedule provided the consumer installs a phase converter for the operation of the same. Motors having a rated capacity of 20 or more horsepower must have reduced voltage starters.

Monthly Rate

Basic Facilities Charges:

Single-Phase $ 45.00
Three-Phase $ 100.00

Where the monthly billed demand is less than 100 kW the demand and energy charge shall be calculated using the charges and blocks directly below.

Demand Charges:

First 15 kW $ 0.00 per kW
All kW over 15 $ 9.50 per kW

Minimum Monthly Charge

The minimum monthly charge shall be the highest of the following charges as determined for the consumer in question:

  1. The appropriate Basic Facilities Charge as stated above, or

Determination of Billing Demand

The billing demand shall be the highest of the following:

  2. Fifty (50) percent of the contract demand, or
  3. The minimum billing demand is stated in the consumer’s power contract.

Power Factor Adjustment

The consumer agrees to maintain a unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Demand charges will be adjusted for consumers with 50 kW or more of measured demand to correct for an average power factor lower than 90 percent, and may be so adjusted for other consumers if the Cooperative deems it necessary. Such adjustments will be made by increasing the measured demand by 1 percent for each 1 percent that the average power factor is less than 90 percent lagging.

Condition of Service

Prior to the procurement of electric motors and actual service connection thereto, the consumer shall consult with the Cooperative to verify service characteristics and agree on service conditions. The consumer shall install or have installed protective devices on all electric motors and equipment to protect same in case the supply of electricity shall fail or be interrupted, or become defective through the act of God, or the public enemy, or state, municipal, or public authority, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of the Cooperative. The Cooperative shall not be liable for such failure, interruption, or defect.

Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment
