AVAILABILITY

Available to consumers who permit the Cooperative to control all or portions of their load for all types of usage, except irrigation, subject to the established rules and regulations of the Cooperative.  The load under control must be estimated to contribute at least 40 kW on an average monthly basis to the Cooperative's billing demand from its power supplier.

TYPE OF SERVICE

Single or three-phase, 60 hertz, at available secondary voltages.

MONTHLY RATE

Facility Charge.............................................................. $175.00

 

Demand Charge:

Coincidental Demand................................................ $23.50 per kW, plus

Maximum Demand..................................................... $3.25 per kW

 

Energy Charge................................................................... $0.040 per kWh

SPECIAL METERING

The special metering charge shall not apply to consumers that allow the Cooperative to control their entire load, thus eliminating the need for special time-of-use metering equipment.

MINIMUM CHARGES

The Cooperative shall determine the minimum monthly charge based on one of the following methods:

1.     The minimum monthly charge specified in the contract for service.

2.     A charge of $1.20 per kVA of required transformer capacity.

3.     The monthly facility charge and special metering charge, if applicable, as shown above.

MINIMUM ANNUAL CHARGES

Unless otherwise stated in the contract for service, a consumer may guarantee a minimum annual charge, in which case, there shall be no minimum monthly charge.  The minimum charge shall be sufficient to assure adequate compensation for facilities installed to serve the load and, in no event, shall it be less than twelve times the minimum monthly charge determined in accordance with the foregoing paragraph.

BILLING DEMAND

1.     The coincidental demand shall be equal to the customer's contribution to the monthly billing demand from the Cooperative's power supplier, East River Electric Power Cooperative.

2.     The maximum demand shall be the maximum kilowatt demand established by the customer for any period of fifteen consecutive minutes during the month for which the bill is rendered, as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor.

CONTROLLED LOAD

Under the terms of this rate schedule, the Cooperative will install remote control equipment or its equivalent to control all or a specified portion of the customer's load during the Cooperative's monthly peak billing demand from its power supplier.

POWER FACTOR ADJUSTMENT

The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable.  Demand charges may be adjusted to correct for average power factor lower than 90 percent, and may be so adjusted for other consumers if and when the Cooperative deems necessary.  Such adjustment will be made by increasing the measured demand one percent for each one percent by which the average power factor is less than 90 percent lagging.

PURCHASED POWER COST ADJUSTMENT CHARGE

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

STATE AND MUNICIPAL TAXES

All applicable state and municipal sales tax and any other non-ad valorem taxes imposed on electric energy sales shall be applied to monthly bills rendered under this rate schedule unless the consumer is exempt from said tax or taxes.

TERMS OF PAYMENT

In the event the current monthly bill is not paid in accordance with the payment dates indicated on the bill, a late payment penalty in effect at the time shall apply.

This rate schedule supersedes rate schedule OPS-3LP adopted February 28, 2013.
