E. Transmission Cost Pass-Through
In addition to the rates and charges described above, members will be billed a Transmission Cost Pass-Through for all kWh consumed.


F. Determination of Demand
For purposes of rate classification, the demand shall be the maximum kilowatt (kW) demand established by the member for any period of fifteen consecutive minutes during the month for which the bill is rendered, as indicated or recorded by the demand meter. If demand exceeds the 75 kW level for more than one month in any period of 12 consecutive months, the account shall be classified as Large Power and billed under the Large Power rate.

G. Power Factor Adjustment
The Member agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Demand charges will be adjusted to correct for average power factors lower than ninety-eight percent (98%) and may be so adjusted, if and when the Cooperative deems necessary. Such adjustments will be made by increasing the measured demand one percent (1%) for each one percent (1%) by which the average power factor is less than ninety-eight percent (98%) lagging.


H. Minimum Monthly Charge
The minimum monthly charge shall be the highest of the following charges:
1. The Distribution Access Charge
2. A charge of $1.00 per KVA of installed transformer capacity

 

A. Availability
The Irrigation and Large Pumping Rate Schedule applies to electric service required for pumping service at locations where the installed motor capacity is ten horsepower or greater.

Bills for electric service will be issued on a monthly basis. The Cooperative uses two billing cycles. Cycle 1 bills are issued on or about the fifteenth of each month, and are considered past due if payment is not received on or before the fifth day of the month following the date of issue.
