Determination of Billing Demand:

Billing demand will be the highest of the following:

  • 50 kW;
  • Metered demand;
  • 75% of the highest metered demand established during the month of June, July, August or September.

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.

Power Cost Adjustment: The foregoing energy charges will be increased or decreased according to the terms of the Power Cost Adjustment 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 be applied to the 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 customers:

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

Minimum Annual Charge for Seasonal Service: Customers requiring service only during certain seasons, not exceeding nine months per year, the Cooperative requires a guaranteed minimum annual charge, in which case there shall be no minimum monthly charge. The minimum annual charge shall be sufficient to assure adequate compensation for the facilities installed to serve the customer, and in no event shall it be less than 12 times the minimum monthly charge determined in accordance with the foregoing paragraph.

Minimum 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.
