INDUSTRIAL SERVICE WITH MEMBER OWNED GENERATION

AVAILABILITY

Service under this schedule is available to members of the Kosciusko Rural Electric Membership Corporation (KREMC) that have a connected load requiring installed transformer capacity in excess of 75 kVA, have generation equipment with a total nameplate capacity greater than 10 kW, and have executed an Agreement for Interconnection of Distributed Generation contract with KREMC.

TYPE OF SERVICE

Alternating current, 60 hertz, at 120/240 volts, or such other voltage as might be mutually agreed upon, with primary metering and KREMC facilities on the consumer side of meter.

DISTRIBUTION OF DELIVERY AND STANDBY SERVICE

As used herein, Distribution Delivery and Standby Service includes the provision by KREMC of any distribution capacity required to:

  1. Deliver power to the member when its power requirements exceed its generation output or when its generation capability is unavailable due to scheduled or unscheduled outage.
  2. Deliver power generated by the member in excess of its power requirements to the distribution or transmission system for purchase by third parties.

POWER SUPPLY SERVICE

Power Supply service includes the delivery of any electrical capacity and energy to the member regardless of whether the capacity and energy is maintenance, supplemental or standby in nature.

Members wishing to sell power in excess of their usage requirements must arrange to do so with the generation and transmission cooperation (G&T), which provides all of KREMC’s power requirements. Rates for such sales will be subject to agreement with the G&T (wholesale agreement).

SAFETY AND RELIABILITY REQUIREMENTS

See KREMC’s DG Interconnection Requirements document for detailed information.

MONTHLY CHARGES

The monthly charges under this schedule shall be the sum of the charges for the following services.

DETERMINATION OF BILLING ENERGY 

The member’s generation output shall be netted against its consumption on a clock hour basis.  The sum of all hours where the member’s generated energy output is greater than its consumption shall be considered delivered to the G&T and subject to the terms of the wholesale agreement.  The sum of all hours where the member’s energy consumption exceeds its generation output shall be considered kilowatt-hours (kWh) energy delivered to the member.  The Billing Energy shall be the total kilowatt-hours (kWh) delivered to the member by time-of-use period during the billing month.

DETERMINATION OF TIME OF USE PERIODS

The hours for each “time of use” period shall be defined as follows:

  • On Peak – From 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM (Eastern) each weekday,

DETERMINATION OF MAXIMUM DEMAND

The Maximum Demand shall be the maximum average kilowatt demand used by the consumer for any period of fifteen (15) consecutive minutes (or more) during the month for which the bill is rendered as indicated or recorded by a maximum demand meter installed by KREMC

POWER FACTOR

If at any time the average power factor is measured at less than 90% (lagging), metered billing demand (kW) will be multiplied by the ratio of 90%, the resultant then divided by the power factor as a percent to derive billing demand.

DETERMINATION OF CONSUMER SPECIFIC FACILITY CHARGE

The consumer specific facility charge is based upon the monthly amortized cost of the outstanding balance (of original investment), plus an ongoing charge for operations and maintenance, taxes, and administration. It is applied to all facilities that are sole-use facilities for the industrial-type customer.

MINIMUM MONTHLY CHARGE

The Minimum Monthly Charge shall be the total of Distribution Delivery and Standby Service as determined herein.

LATE PAYMENT CHARGE

Bills for service rendered under this Schedule are net and shall be due and payable monthly.  If not paid within seventeen (17) days of the due date, the gross bill, which shall include a late payment charge of 3.125% of net billing, shall be the amount to be paid.  If the seventeenth day falls on Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday; the next business day shall be the final day for net payment.
