6.9

Establishment of Credit

Subject to the exceptions noted below, the Association requires a separate deposit for
each meter installed. Members may be required to pay the deposit upon application for or
service. The amount of the deposit will be determined as set forth below but may not
exceed the higher of twice the Association's estimate of the average monthly bill at that
location or twice the average monthly bill of that customer class. (See Schedule of
Deposits and Charges.) The deposit shall be security for the payment of unpaid bills
upon termination of service; its existence does not impair any right of the Association
to terminate service as provided by these Rules and Regulations.
The Association will use the following credit rating criteria, based on the Equifax
Energy Risk Assessment Model, to determine whether a deposit is required and, if so,
what the amount of the deposit should be for purposes of establishing credit.

For both new and past members returning to the service area with a credit history
two (2) years or older, or a credit history that fails to qualify for a waiver of deposit,
their credit rating will be evaluated by using an established third-party credit reporting
agency. The third-party credit reporting agency scoring results in the following deposit
requirements:

Establishment of Credit

A deposit may be waived upon application of service for an individual who can provide a
letter from the utility which last provided comparable service, stating that within the last
twelve (12) months of continuous service, the individual has not been past due in payment
more than twice, has not been delinquent in payment in the last six (6) months, and the
service must have been provided within the last two years. A deposit may be waived upon
application of service for a returning member upon satisfaction of these same criteria from
the Association's records.
The Association will pay interest on deposits equal to the interest rate of the account in
which such deposits are placed. All deposits shall be placed in an interest-bearing
account. If service is interrupted because of delinquencies in payments, the Association
will not pay interest on the deposit for twelve months after service is re-established.
The Association will waive or refund a deposit plus any accrued interest within ninety
days if a member meets either of the following conditions:
(a)

The member has previously established a satisfactory payment record with the
Association, having received service from the Association at another location
within the past two years without any delinquency in payment during the past
twelve consecutive months of service; or

(b)

The member provides a letter or written verification from the electric utility that
last provided comparable service to the member stating that the member was not
delinquent in payment for the last twelve consecutive months of service at the prior
location.

If the member applicant does not qualify for a waiver of the deposit requirement pursuant
to either Section 6.9(a) or Section 6.9(b), the Association will then request the member's
permission to run a credit report on the member. The Association will not request a credit
report without the member's permission.

available, the Association will invest additional 50%
matching funds for a line extension to serve a member(s), up to a normal maximum distance of one mile,
when the Association is assured that orderly, permanent
gro\-ith in the area to be served is imminent and the
extenSibh will be along publicly maintained roads or
within adjacent residential subdivisions meeting
current Fairbanks North Star Borough requirements.
In
such cases, the member(s) will be. required to pay a
cash contribution-in-aid of construction equal to 50%
of the estimated total additional funds required to
complete the extension. Line extensions exceeding the
Association's normal limit of one primary pole, transformer(s) and service drop (or equivalent), but not
meeting the requirements underlined above, will require
that the member (s) served pay a cash contribution-inaid of construction equaling 100% of the estimated
additional funds required to complete the extension.
This deposit will be adjusted to actual cost after job
completion. See Rule 7.2, Paragraph 4 for refund of

State or publicly maintained road -- 1% of the
estimated cost of construction.
If the service point is over 1,500 feet from a
State or publicly maintained road -- 1 1/2%.of
the estimated cost of construction.

b.

The minimum monthly bill stipulated in a~y line


extension service contract will not be less than
1%. of the cost of providing one primary pole,
~ransformer(s) and a service drop.

As stated above, the service contract guarantees the


Association a minimum revenue level. The service

Rolling Average Billing Plan


Description of Rolling Average Billing Plan - The Rolling Average Billing
Plan is a voluntary alternative payment arrangement for residential
Members. The Rolling Average Billing Plan is designed to help Members
manage the impacts of seasonal usage and fuel price variations to their
bills, and to provide more consistent and predictable monthly bills.
Rolling Average Billing Plan Methodology - Under the Rolling Average
Billing Plan option, a Members bill is adjusted each month using a
monthly average of the amounts the Member would have paid in their
bills for the most recent twelve months of usage. Since the Rolling
Average Billing Plan uses averages and mitigates large swings to a
Members bills, the Member may at times have a balance that will be
either owed to the Member or owed to the Association. This balance is
called the Budget Plan Accumulated Balance. The Budget Plan
Accumulated Balance is an accumulation of the differences between
what is actually billed under the Rolling Average Billing Plan and what
would have been billed under the Association's standard billing plan.
Each month, one-twelfth (1/12) of any amount in the Budget Plan
Accumulated Balance is added to or subtracted from the amount a
Member is billed under the Rolling Average Billing Plan.

corrected within thirty (30) calendar days after the Transmission
Provider notifies the Transmission Customer to cure such failure,
a default by the Transmission Customer shall be deemed to exist.
Upon the occurrence of a default, the Transmission Provider may
immediately terminate Transmission Service under the Tariff until
the default is cured.
In the event of a billing dispute between the Transmission
Provider and the Transmission Customer, the Transmission
Provider will continue to provide service under the Service
Agreement as long as the Transmission Customer (i) continues to
make all payments not in dispute, and (ii) pays into an
independent escrow account an amount equal to the portion of
the invoice in dispute, pending resolution of such dispute. If the
Transmission Customer fails to meet these two requirements for
continuation of service during a billing dispute, then the
Transmission Provider may provide notice to the Transmission
Customer of its intention to terminate transmission service in
thirty (30) days.

determines that the Transmission System is not capable of
providing Firm Point-To-Point Transmission Service without
(1) degrading or impairing the reliability of service to Native Load
Customers and other Transmission Customers taking Firm PointTo-Point Transmission Service, or (2) interfering with the
Transmission Provider's ability to meet prior firm contractual
commitments to others, the Transmission Provider will only be
obligated to expand or upgrade its Transmission System pursuant
to the terms of Section 16.5. The Transmission Customer must
agree to compensate the Transmission Provider for any necessary
transmission facility additions pursuant to the terms of Section 16.5.
To the extent the Transmission Provider can relieve any system
constraint more economically by redispatching the Transmission

may do so, provided that the Eligible Customer agrees to
compensate the Transmission Provider pursuant to the terms of
Section 16.5.
Any redispatch, System Upgrade or Direct

Curtailment of Firm Transmission Service. In the event that a


Curtailment on the Transmission Provider's Transmission System,
or a portion thereof, is required to maintain reliable operation of
such system, Curtailments will be made on a non-discriminatory
basis to the transaction(s) that effectively relieve the constraint. If
multiple transactions require Curtailment, to the extent practicable
and consistent with Good Utility Practice, the Transmission
Provider will curtail service to Transmission Customers taking
Firm Point-To-Point Transmission Service on a basis comparable
to the curtailment of service to the Transmission Provider'S Native
Load Customers. All Curtailments under this Tariff will be made
on a non-discriminatory basis. When the Transmission Provider
determines that an electrical or system emergency exists on its
Transmission System and implements emergency procedures to
curtail firm transmission service, the Transmission Customer shall
make the required reductions upon request of the Transmission
Provider. However, the Transmission Provider reserves the right
to initiate Curtailment, in whole or in part, any Firm Point-To-f:>oint
Transmission Service provided under the Tariff when, in the
Transmission Provider's sole discretion, an emergency or other
unforeseen condition impairs or degrades the reliability of its
Transmission System. The Transmission Provider will notify all

Regulation and Frequency Response Service is necessary to provide for


the continuous balancing of resources (generation and interchange) with
load and for maintaining scheduled Interconnection frequency at sixty
cycles per second (60 Hz). Regulation and Frequency Response Service is
accomplished by committing on-line generation whose output is raised or
lowered (predominantly through the use of automatic generating control
equipment) as necessary to follow the moment-by-moment changes in load.
The obligation to maintain this balance between resources and load lies
with the Transmission Provider. The Transmission Provider must offer this
service when the transmission service is used to serve load within its
Control Area. The Transmission Customer must either purchase this
service from the Transmission Provider or make alternative comparable
arrangements to satisfy its Regulation and Frequency Response Service
obligation. The amount of and charges for Regulation and Frequency
Response Service are set forth below.
Regulation and Frequency Response service as provided under this tariff is
only applicable to Point(s) of Delivery associated with loads located within
the Transmission Provider's Service Territory Area.

Operating Reserve - Supplemental Reserve Service

Supplemental Reserve Service is needed to serve load in the event of a


system contingency; however, it is not available immediately to serve load but
rather within a short period of time. Supplemental Reserve Service may be
provided by generating units that are on-line but unloaded, by quick-start
generation or by interruptible load. The Transmission Provider must offer this
service when the transmission service is used to serve load within
Transmission Provider's Service Territory Area. The Transmission Customer
must either purchase this service from the Transmission Provider or make
alternative comparable arrangements to satisfy its Supplemental Reserve
Service obligation.
1.

Supplemental Reserve Requirements:

A Transmission Customer that obtains its Supplemental Reserve


Requirements through purchase of such service from the Transmission
Provider shall be obligated to obtain an amount of reserved capacity (in
kilowatts) of Supplemental Reserves each month at least equal to one hundred
fifty percent (150%) of the Transmission Customer's Spinning Reserve
Requirements (calculated in accordance with the provisions of Rate
Schedule T-6). To the extent that the Transmission Provider determines, in its
sole discretion, that a Transmission Customer's specific supplemental reserve
requirements are greater than the Supplemental Reserve Requirements as
provided above, the Transmission Provider has the right to require such
Transmission Customer to purchase a greater amount of Supplemental
Reserve Requirements.
To the extent that the Transmission Customer
determines that its specific supplemental reserve requirements are less than
the Supplemental Reserve Requirements as provided above, the Transmission
Customer has the right to permit the Transmission Customer to purchase a
lesser amount of Supplemental Reserve Requirements.
