This schedule is available in all territories served by the Cooperative, subject to the Cooperative’s established Service Rules and Regulations.
This schedule is applicable to those three-phase consumers whose monthly 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 240/480. Motors having a rated capacity in excess of 40 horsepower must have reduced voltage starters.
|Basic Facilities Charge:||$ 1,000.00|
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.
|All kW||$ 11.25 per kW|
|First 219 kWh per kW||5.72 ¢ per kWh|
|Next 219 kWh per kW||5.10 ¢ per kWh|
|All kWhs over 438 kWh per kW||4.47 ¢ per kWh|
Where the monthly billed demand is 100 kW or greater the charges shall be the lower of the demand and energy charges shown above or the energy charge shown below.
|All kWh||25.24 ¢ per kWh|
Minimum Monthly Charge
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, or
- The minimum monthly charge specified in the consumer’s contract for power.
Determination of Billing Demand
The billing demand shall be the highest of the following:
- The maximum kilowatt demand established for a period of 15 consecutive minutes during the month may be adjusted for power factor as provided below,
- Fifty (50) percent of the contract demand,
- The minimum billing demand that may be provided in the consumer’s power contract, or
- Seventy-five (75) percent of the highest billing demand was established during the preceding 11 months.
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.
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
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.
