*These line items of electricity consumed are multiplied by a loss factor. When electricity is delivered over a power line, it is normal for a small amount of power to be consumed or lost as heat.
Equipment, such as wires and transformers, consumes power before it gets to your home or business. The loss factor (or adjustment factor) accounts for these losses.

TOU billing divides a consumer’s electricity consumption into three different time periods; on-peak, mid-peak and off-peak. Each time period has a corresponding rate that will be charged for electricity
used during that time. On-peak electricity rates are the highest, off-peak electricity rates are the lowest and mid-peak rates fall somewhere in between. While weekends and holidays are always off-
peak, TOU periods for weekdays change seasonally and are subject to change
