   (e)   Power Supply Cost Adjustment - Effective for bills rendered after 1/1/14.
      (1)   Applicability. The power supply cost adjustment set forth herein shall be applied to the total kWh billed for all electric customers, including private outdoor lighting service customers, for the meter reading period that the Village determines as most nearly corresponding to the three-month period used to determine the adjustment.
      (2)   Base power supply costs.  The rates and charges set forth in the Village's rate schedules are based upon the cost of the Village's power supply requirements as furnished by American Municipal Power - Ohio. The base power supply cost included in the Village's rate schedules is $0.079273 per kWh.
      (3)   Monthly determination of power supply cost adjustment.  Each month the Village's power supply cost adjustment shall be determined as follows:
         A.   The Village's running three-month average power supply cost per kWh shall be determined to six decimal places by dividing:
            1.   The sum of the previous two and current months' total power supply costs from all suppliers, plus the sum of the previous two and current months' costs associated with ownership and operation of generating facilities owned in whole or in part by the Village, plus the sum of the previous two and current months' transmission- related charges and AMP service fees, plus the sum of the previous two and current months’ total operating and maintenance costs associated with supplying electric distribution materials by
            2.   The total energy delivered to the Village in the previous two months and current month.
         B.   The base power supply cost of $0.079273 per kWh shall be subtracted from the running 12-month average power supply cost determined in division (e)(3)A. above.
         C.   The power supply cost adjustment per kWh shall be determined by multiplying the differential in division (e)(3)B. by 1.10 to compensate for the Village's distribution system energy losses. The result should then be rounded to the nearest 0.10 mill ($0.0001) per kWh.
   (f)   Excise (Kilowatt-Hour) Tax Adjustment.  The Village's current electric rate schedules are hereby modified to include the following provision for all customers located outside the Village's corporation limits. The rates and charges set forth in this schedule shall be increased by an amount equal to the excise (kilowatt-hour) tax imposed on the Village's electric distribution system under Ohio R.C. 5727.81. Said increase shall become effective with the bills that include May 1, 2001 as part of the usage period and shall thereafter be automatically adjusted to reflect any change in the kilowatt-hour imposed by Ohio R.C. 5727.81.
      For the first 2000 kWh used            the tax rate is   $0.00465 per kWh
      For the next 2001 to 15,000 kWh used      the tax rate is   0.00419 per kWh
      For anything above 15,000 kWh used      the tax rate is   0.00363 per kWh
