SCHEDULE I OR LP – DG
INDUSTRIAL OR LARGE POWER SERVICE WITH
MEMBER-OWNED GENERATION GREATER THAN 10 KW CAPACITY
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 metering.
Distribution Delivery and Standby Service
As used herein, Distribution Delivery and Standby Service includes the provision by KREMC of any distribution capacity required to:
- 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.
- 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.
The monthly charges under this schedule shall be the sum of the charges for the following services.
Distribution Delivery and Standby Service
Service Charge (sum of A + B)
A. Consumer specific – Determined by facilities provided
(See Consumer Specific Facility Charge Calculation)
B. All Consumers – $102.00 per month
Demand Charge per kW of Maximum Billing Demand
For All Deliveries $6.04 per kW
Power Supply Service
Demand Charge per kW of Net Coincident Peak (CP) Demand at Supplier Peak
All Deliveries $13.12 per CP kW
Energy Charge per kWh of Net Energy Delivered During “Time of Use” Period
On Peak $0.06481 per kWh
Off Peak $0.05441 per kWh
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 COINCIDENT PEAK DEMAND
The Coincident Peak (CP) Kilowatt (kW) Demand shall be the Member’s kW demand, net of generation output, during the same 60-minute clock hour interval as when the G&T establishes its highest system billing demand during the billing month. The CP Demand shall only occur during On Peak hours as defined herein and shall not be less than zero. If the member’s generation output exceeds its requirements during the peak hour, the excess shall be considered delivered to the G&T and subject to the terms of the wholesale agreement.
DETERMINATION OF TIME OF USE PERIODS
The hours for each “time of use” period shall be defined as follows:
- On Peak – From 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM (Eastern) each weekday,
- Off Peak – All weekend hours, holiday hours and weekday hours outside the On Peak period defined above. Designated holidays include: New Year’s Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
KREMC may revise the rate periods at its sole discretion.
DETERMINATION OF MAXIMUM DEMAND
The Maximum Demand shall be the maximum kilowatt (kW) demand used by the consumer for any period of fifteen (15) consecutive minutes during the month for which the bill is rendered as indicated or recorded by a maximum demand meter installed by KREMC.
If at any time the average power factor is measured at less than 90% (lagging), metered Maximum 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.

- Service shall be provided in accordance with the provisions set forth in the Kosciusko REMC policies, bylaws, and rate schedule Appendices A and B.

- In general, motors having a rated capacity in excess of ten horsepower (10 H.P.) must be multi-phase.
- In those cases where the member is not located adjacent to multi-phase lines of KREMC, service will be rendered only after the member will give satisfactory assurance by means of a written agreement as to the character, amount, and duration of the business offered.
- Contract term shall not be less than three years.
- Kosciusko REMC reserves the right to assign individual members to the rate that is deemed most appropriate and fair to the membership as a whole.
