Determination of Maximum Load and Measurement of Energy
Billing maximum load in kVA shall be taken each month as the highest registration in kilowatts during the month by a 15-minute integrating or thermal type demand meter or indicator divided by the average lagging power factor established during the month corrected to the nearest kVA. Energy will be measured by suitable integrating instruments. For billing purposes the billing maximum load shall be the greater of the maximum load occurring during the month or one hunderd (100) kVA.

Bills computed under this rate schedule will be modified by credits as follows:

  1. Delivery Voltage - When the measurement of energy is made at the primary voltage of the transmission or distribution line used to supply the customer, the maximum load and energy charges will be multiplied by 0.98.
  2. Equipment Supplied by Customer - When customer furnishes and maintains the complete substation equipment including any and all transformers, switches and/or other apparatus necessary to take his entire service at the primary voltage of the transmission or distribution line from which service is received, a credit of $0.30 per kVA of billing maximum load will be applied to each billing.

Off-Peak Service
Those customers with a maximum load of not less than 500 kVA may be served on the basis that their main use of their service will be during the following off-peak periods:

  1. Off-Peak periods shall be all hours between 9:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m., local time, Monday through Friday, and all hours of the day on Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays.

For billing purposes, the billing maximum load shall be the greater of:

  1. The maximum load occurring during the On-Peak periods of the month
  2. Forty-nine and ninety five hundreds percent (49.95%) of the maximum load occurring during the off-peak periods of the month
  3. Five Hundred(500) kVA.
