This schedule applies to all large power customers where actual demand has exceeded one thousand kilowatts three times or more within the preceding twelve months or where installed capacity serving a customer at a single, contiguous site is 2500 kilovolt-amperes (KVA) or greater.
Type of Service
Service to be furnished under this schedule is three-phase, sixty Hertz, alternating current.
Heavy Load Period Demand Charges
The maximum billing occurring during the hours of 7 a.m. through 12 noon, Monday through Saturday, after adjustment for power factor:
|Primary voltage delivery:||$5.04/kW of billing demand|
|Secondary voltage delivery||$5.15/kW of billing demand|
Light Load Period Demand Charges
The maximum billing demand occurring during the hours of 12 noon through 7 a.m., Monday through Saturday, and all hours Sunday which is in excess of billing demand occurring during heavy or intermediate load hours, after adjustment for power factor:
|Primary voltage delivery:||$2.00/kW of billing demand|
|Secondary voltage delivery:||$2.21/kW of billing demand|
The basic monthly charge shall be $341.25 per delivery point unless otherwise specified by contract.
Billing demand shall be the maximum 30 minute demand for the month, after adjustment for power factor. Application of intermediate and/or light load period demand charges is subject to the availability of District approved metering for determining these demands. Until such time that metering is installed and operational to determine such demands, the heavy load period demand charges shall apply.
The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Should measurement indicate that the average power factor is less than 95%, the demand for billing purposes shall be increased by one percent (1%) for each percentage point or major fraction thereof by which the average power factor is below 95%. The average power factor shall be determined by measurement of kilowatt hours and reactive kilovolt-ampere hours during the billing period using the following formula:
Power Factor = KWH ÷ √(KWH)²+(Kvarh)²
Where PF = Average Power Factor
Where KWH = Kilowatt Hours
Where Kvarh =Reactive Kilovolt-ampere hours
Primary Voltage Delivery
Where delivery is made at the District’s currently available primary distribution voltage, rates for primary voltage delivery shall apply. The point of delivery will be determined by the District. If, at the District’s option, deliveries are measured at secondary voltage, billing will be based upon measured deliveries adjusted for District’s estimated transformer losses.
Where multiple points of delivery are provided to the same consumer at the same premises, the deliveries shall be metered separately and the demands for each period shall be computed on a non-coincidental basis, unless provided for otherwise by contract.Minimum charges, if any, apply to each delivery point.
Terms of Payment
Charges for service under the schedule are due and payable fifteen (15) days after the invoice date.
Rules and Policies
Service under this schedule is subject to the rules and policies of the District.
The District reserves the right to require installation of load limiting and/or other control devices whenever, in its judgment, they are necessary to prevent injury to its system or undesirable peak load conditions.
