CP-4 Industrial Power Time-Of-Day

Application

This rate will be applied to customers for all types of service if their monthly Maximum Measured Demand is in excess of 1,000 kilowatts (kW) per month for three or more months in a consecutive 12-month period unless the customer exceeds the application conditions of the large power time-of-day schedule.

A customer billed on this rate shall continue to be billed on this rate until their monthly Maximum Measured Demand is less than 1,000 kW per month for 12 consecutive months. The utility shall annually offer a customer billed on this rate the option to continue to be billed on this rate for another 12 months if their monthly Maximum Measured Demand is less than 1,000 kW per month. However, this option shall be offered with the provision that the customer waives all rights to billing adjustments arising from a claim that the bill for service would be less on another rate schedule than under this rate schedule.

Determination of Maximum Measured Demand

The maximum measured demand in any month shall be that demand in kilowatts necessary to supply the average kilowatts in 15 consecutive minutes of greatest consumption of electricity during each month. Such maximum measured demand shall be determined from readings of permanently installed meters or, at the option of the utility, by any standard methods or meters. Said demand meter shall be reset to zero when the meter is read each month.

Determination of On-Peak Billed Demand

When the average monthly Power Factor is equal to or greater than 90.00 percent, the On-Peak Maximum Measured Demand shall be the On-Peak Billed Demand.

When the Average Monthly Power Factor is less than 90.00 percent, the On-Peak Maximum Measured Demand shall be adjusted to obtain the On-Peak Billed Demand. On-Peak Billed Demand shall be determined each month by the following formula:

The Average Power Factor is obtained by the following formula, where

A monthly use of kilowatt hours
B monthly use of lagging reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours as obtained from a reactive component meter

Any reactive component meter used shall be equipped with ratchets to prevent registration of leading power factor.
