ELECTRIC COST ADJUSTMENT

customer’s monthly bill for electric service will
be adjusted for changes in the average cost of
electricity per KWH generated, purchased, and
sold by the City for the immediately preceding
month. The monthly bill for electric service will
be increased or decreased by the amount of
variation in such cost to the nearest
one-thousandth of one mill per KWH multiplied
by the ratio of the KWH sales from the City’s
generation and purchase to the KWH sales.
