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

Power Factor Adjustment: The customer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable.

Such adjustments will be made by increasing the measured demand to an equivalent demand that would yield a 90% power factor.
