Restricted Service Rate

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

APPLICABILITY:
To loads located on or near DEMCO’s facilities which agree to receive restricted service solely at the discretion of DEMCO and have signed the corresponding Agreement(s) for Electric Service with DEMCO.

AVAILABILITY:
To loads of a minimum of 5,000 KW and which agree and contract to not having service available during restricted time periods. Service is available at all hours during the months of October through April. During the months of May through September, service is available at all hours except during the restricted period of 1:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Central Time. Availability during the restricted period shall be only with advance hour-by-hour approval of DEMCO. DEMCO approval of service during the restricted period regardless of the timing or method of such approval in no way relieves any load from possible Billing Demand charges.

TYPE OF SERVICE:
Three-phase, 60 cycles, at DEMCO’s standard voltages

MONTHLY RATE:
Demand Charge:
$9.02 per KW of Billing Demand

Energy Charge:
$0.0058 per KWH

Fuel Charge:
As determined under Fuel Cost Adjustment
Clause FCA-DE

DETERMINATION OF BILLINGDEMAND:
During each of the months of May, June, July, August, and September of each year, DEMCO will determine the hourly total metered demands during the 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. periods at the delivery point(s) serving loads under this schedule. DEMCO will also determine the normalized demands for each 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. hour by subtracting the hourly meter demand amounts of any restrictive loads from the total metered hourly demands of the delivery point.

The Base Demand for a restrictive load shall be the delivery point’s 1:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m. peak total hourly metered demand during the month minus the peak normalized demand during the 1:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m. periods of the month.

If there is more than one (1) restrictive load included in the determination of the Base Demand, each restrictive load’s Base Demand shall be prorated based upon the magnitude of each restrictive load’s metered demand during the delivery point’s total peak hour to the total of all restrictive load’s metered demand during such hour.

During each of the months of May through September, a restrictive load’s Billing Demand for the month shall be the higher of the load’s Base Demand for the current month or the load’s highest Base Demand determined during the most recent previous months of May through September. The Billing Demand for a month is irrespective of the restrictive load receiving approval by DEMCO to receive service at any level during any or all of the 1:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m. hours.

For the months of October through April a restrictive load’s Billing Demand shall be one hundred percent (100%) of the highest monthly Billing Demand determined during the immediately preceding May through September period for the load.

RIDERS:
Riders FF-CR, SCRR and FRP are available under this schedule.

CONDITIONS OF SERVICE:
1. Any problems on the DEMCO distribution or transmission systems, as a result of loads served by this rate, must be corrected as the sole responsibility of the load. DEMCO reserves the right to discontinue service if such problems are not promptly and adequately addressed. DEMCO in its sole discretion shall determine the existence of an adequate correction of any problem.

2. DEMCO reserves the right to modify any terms and conditions of this schedule, including any and all rate charges, at any time due to changes or interpretations of its power supply contract or requirements of its regulators.

MINIMUM MONTHLY CHARGES:
The minimum monthly charge shall be the greater of the Demand Charge or the minimum charge specified in the Agreement for Electric Service.
