FACILITY CHARGE

For billing purposes, the facility charge shall be based on the peak kW demand as determined by the Cooperative.  For new systems or systems converting from high to low pressure pumping, the facility charge shall be estimated and adjusted to actual at the end of the season.  The facility charge is subject to adjustment for power factor.

POWER FACTOR

The demand and energy charge is subject to upward or downward adjustment to reflect variations in purchased power costs.
