Effective: December 25, 2022


Service under this schedule is applicable to all three phase electric services less than 2500 kilowatts (kW) unless another rate schedule applies or is needed due to the uniqueness of the service requirements.


Service under this schedule is available at points on the Cooperative’s interconnected system where existing facilities of adequate capacity and desired phase and voltage are available, and additional investment by the Cooperative for new transmission, substation, or terminal facilities is not necessary to supply the desired service.

Billing Demand

The Billing Demand is the average kW supplied during the rolling 15-minute period at maximum use during the billing period
