Over or under billing will be billed or refunded to the Consumer, but the Cooperative at its discretion may apply over or under billing to the next seasonal billing computation. If seasonal billing is terminated, over or under billing will be billed or refunded as soon as possible.

Each transformer will be installed according to standard engineering practices sized to the closest standard size installed by the Cooperative which is sufficient to provide the service required. If at the convenience of the cooperative, larger transformers are provided, the required kVA for billing purposes will be the closest standard kVA size which would provide the requested service regardless of the actual size installed.
