This schedule is available on a voluntary and limited basis, at the Cooperative’s option. This rate shall be limited to the availability of appropriate meters and will be limited further by the saturation and/or impact on the Cooperative’s electric system of consumers utilizing this Rate Schedule in a general area.
Service under this schedule is applicable to three-phase consumers whose monthly kW demand has exceeded 1,000 kW at least once during the most recent twelve months.
Type of Service
Service under this schedule shall be three-phase, 60 cycles, at the following voltages: 120/208 or 277/480. Motors having a rated capacity of more than 40 horsepower must have reduced voltage starters
|Basic Facilities Charges:||$ 1,100.00 per Month|
|On-Peak Demand||$ 16.20 per kW of On-Peak Demand|
|Maximum Monthly Demand||$ 5.20 per kW of Off-Peak Demand|
|On-Peak Energy||6.80 ¢ per On-Peak kWh|
|Off-Peak Energy||4.49 ¢ per Off-Peak kWh|
The minimum monthly charge shall be the highest of the following charges as determined for the consumer in question:
- The appropriate Basic Facilities Charge as stated above,
- $1.75 times the kVA rating of the transformer installed to meet the consumer’s load requirements, or
- The minimum monthly charge specified in the consumer’s contract for power.
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.
Determination of Billing Demand
The On-Peak Billing Demand shall be the maximum kilowatt demand established by the consumer during a 15-minute interval, during on-peak hours, within the month for which the bill is rendered, as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor. The Maximum Monthly Billing Demand shall be the maximum demand established by the consumer during a 15-minute interval, during all hours, within the month for which the bill is rendered, as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor.
On-Peak and Off-Peak Periods
October 16 – April 15
|On-Peak Hours:||6:00 AM to 9:00 AM, Monday – Friday|
|Off-Peak Hours:||All other hours|
April 16 – October 15
|On-Peak Hours:||2:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Monday – Friday|
|Off-Peak Hours:||All other hours|
All hours of the following holidays shall be considered off-peak:
New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Day after Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day.
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 so that the average power factor is less than 90 percent lagging.
Service at Primary Voltage
If service is furnished at primary distribution voltage, a discount of six (6) percent shall apply to the monthly bill. However, services may be metered at the secondary voltage and adjusted to primary metering by adding the estimated transformer losses to the metered kilowatt-hour and kilowatt demand.
Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment
The Cooperative’s approved Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment shall be applicable to all services supplied under this Schedule.
Any applicable State and local sales taxes will be added to all services billed under this Schedule.
