Cotton Gin Rate

Availability: Available to members for cotton gin facilities in excess of 50 kVA, within the Cooperative's service area, subject to the Cooperative's rules and regulations.

Type of Service: Single or Three phase, 60 cycles, at the Cooperative's standard primary or secondary voltages.

Rate:    
     Customer Service Charge $ 100 per meter per month
     NCP Demand Charge $ 5.12 per NCP Billing kW per month
     On-Peak Demand Charge $ 11.50 per On-Peak Billing kW per month
     Energy Charge $ 0.058535 per kWh for all kWh

Determination of NCP Billing Demand: The metered demand shall be the maximum kilowatt demand established by the customer for any period of 15 consecutive minutes during a billing period as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor as provided hereafter, but not less than 50 kW.

Determination of On-Peak Billing Demand: During the months of June, July, August, and September, the maximum kilowatt demand metered kW established by the customer for any period of 15 consecutive minutes as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor as provided hereafter during the designated peak hours of 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The designated hours may be adjusted by the Cooperative from time to time upon 30 days written notice to the customer.

Power Cost Adjustment: The foregoing energy charges will be increased or decreased according to the terms of the Power Cost Adjustment Factor portion of the retail tariff.

Power Factor Adjustment: The customer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Demand charges may be adjusted to correct for average power factors lower than 90% lagging and may be so adjusted for other customers if and when the Cooperative deems necessary. Such adjustments will be made by increasing the measured demand to an equivalent demand that would yield a 90% power factor.

Service at Primary Voltage: If service is furnished at primary distribution voltage, a discount of 3% will apply to demand and energy charges. For customers who desire to rent rather than own the transformers or any other equipment to receive the primary voltage service discount, the Cooperative will install and maintain the transformers/equipment for a rental charge based on cost.

Minimum Monthly Charge: The minimum monthly charge shall be the highest one of the following charges as determined for the customer:

  • The Customer Service Charge plus the NCP Demand Charge;
  • The minimum monthly charge specified in the Electric Service Agreement.

Minimum Term of Term of Rate Applicability: The minimum term, which this rate shall be applied, upon selection by the customer, is 24 months.

Terms of Payment: In the event the current monthly bill is not paid within 16 days from date of bill, said bill will become delinquent and a fee will be applied.
