RATE 601

THREE PHASE SERVICE BELOW 750 KVA

AVAILABILITY

Available to any member for three phase service located within the REMC’s service areas located adjacent to a distribution line of the REMC that is adequate and suitable for supplying required service with a Maximum transformation of 750 KVA. Service under this rate is provided on a yearly basis. This service is not applicable as standby service.

 

CHARACTER OF SERVICE

The type of service rendered under this rate shall be multi-phase, sixty (60) Hertz, approximately 120/208 volts four wire; 277/480 volts four wire; 120/240 volts four wire; or other voltages as may be mutually agreeable.

 

MONTHLY RATE

  • Consumer Charge - $85.00 per month
  • Demand Charge applicable for all billing kW’s - $14.44 per kW
  • Energy Charge for all kWhs - $.0484 per kWh

 

DETERMINATION OF BILLING DEMAND

The billing demand shall be the maximum kilowatt demand established by the consumer for any period of fifteen (15) consecutive minutes during the month for which the billing is rendered as indicated or recorded by a demand meter and adjusted for power factor as provided below.

 

POWER FACTOR

The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practical. The REMC reserves the right to measure such power factor at any time. Should such measurements indicate that the power factor is less than  97 percent, the demand for billing purposes will be adjusted for average monthly lagging power factor by multiplying the demand as indicated or recorded on the demand meter by  97 percent and divided by the percent power factor.

 

MINIMUM MONTHLY CHARGE

The minimum monthly charge shall be the highest of the following:

  1. The consumer charge, or
  2. The specified contract amount.

 

METERING

The REMC may, at its option, install either secondary or primary metering equipment.

 

When the service is metered at primary voltage and the REMC owns the transformation and related equipment beyond the metering point, 1½ percent of the total kilowatt hours metered shall be deducted before computing the bill.

 

DEDUCTION FOR CUSTOMER OWNED TRANSFORMERS

If service is taken by the member at primary supply line voltage of 12,470 volts or larger, a credit of $0.25 per billing demand will be made. The member shall furnish, install and maintain, at his own expense, all apparatus including substation service at point of connection. The REMC reserves the right to set minimum requirements of protective equipment.

 

CONDITION OF SERVICE

  2. The member shall be required to enter into a written agreement stating the character of load, minimum contract period, minimum monthly charge and other charges, if any.
  3. All motors in excess of 10 horsepower will be three-phase unless approved by the REMC.
  4. All motors or apparatus with inrush current in excess of 250 amps at 240 volts shall require REMC approval.
  5. Single-phase service-to-phase converters will be by the REMC approval only. The single largest motor shall not exceed 50 horsepower and total connected motors shall not exceed 100 horsepower.
  6. The REMC may require corrective measures or devices for any motor or apparatus, which in the opinion of the REMC will cause voltage fluctuation, harmonics or other power conditions. Unless otherwise permitted, the maximum primary voltage fluctuation is 3 percent or IEEE Standard 519.
  7. The member shall be responsible for installing under voltage or loss of phase relays for the protection of the member’s equipment.
  8. All wiring, pole lines, wire and other electrical equipment beyond the point where the service wires of the member connect to the service wires of the REMC shall be considered the distribution system of the member and shall be furnished and maintained by the member, except that metering equipment shall be furnished and maintained by the REMC.
  9. Members maintaining their domestic establishment and their facility requiring three-phase service on the same premises may include service to both through the same meter, in which case all service will be billed in accordance with the rates set forth in this schedule.
