AVAILABLE: In all territory served by the District. APPLICABLE: To commercial, industrial, public buildings and other services not eligible under other rate schedules, where measured demand equals or exceeds 300 kW at least three months in a calendar year, but never exceeds 3500 kW. Time-of-use metering may be provided by Benton PUD upon receipt of a customer's written request and may be at customer expense.The District may also install time-of-use metering at its discretion and expense. CHARACTER OF SERVICE: 60 hertz alternating current of such phase and voltage as the District may have available. RATE: Monthly Customer Charge Multi-phase $26.10

Monthly Energy Charge; Time-of-Use April 1, through August 31, inclusive Monday through Saturday, 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. All other hours $0.0390 per kWh $0.0360 per kWh

September 1, through March 31, inclusive Monday through Saturday, 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. All other hours $0.0478 per kWh $0.0408 per kWh

Monthly Demand Charge First 50 kW of demand per month Excess above 50 kW of demand per month no demand charge $7.00 per kilowatt of billing demand per billing period

BILLING DEMAND: The billing demand under this rate schedule shall be the highest of the following: 1. The measured demand for the month adjusted for power factor less 50 kW. 2. Or as specified in a separate contract. MINIMUM MONTHLY BILL: May be the monthly customer charge, or $0. 27/kVA of required transformer capacity. DELIVERY POINT: The above rates are based upon the supply of service to the entire premises through a single delivery and metering point. Separate supply for the same customer at other points of consumption shall be separately metered and billed. DETERMINATION OF DEMAND: Demand measurement shall be made by suitable instruments at the point of delivery. Demand for any month shall be defined as the average kilowatt delivery during the thirty-minute period in which the consumption of energy is the greatest during the month for which determination is made. POWER FACTOR ADJUSTMENTS: If the average power factor at which power is delivered to the customer is less than 95% lagging, the billing demand may be increased by one percent for each percent or major fraction thereof that the average power factor is less than 95% lagging. The average power factor will be determined by measurement of kilowatt hours and reactive kilovolt-ampere-hours during the billing period using the following formula:


Where pf = Average Power Factor Where kWh = Kilowatt-Hours

Benton PUD

Where kvarh = Reactive-Kilovolt-Ampere Hours The meter measuring reactive volt-ampere-hours shall be ratcheted to prevent reverse rotation when the power factor of the load is leading. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS: Service under this classification is subject to the Customer Service Policies of the District or as specified in a special power sales contract. Primary Facility charges will apply. Additionally, the District may require a contribution from the customer, or a Guaranteed Annual Revenue Contract (GAR), if an electric system improvement such as a new substation is needed as a result of new or additional load.
