      (3)   Minimum charge shall be the customer charge.
   (C)   General service.
      (1)   Customer charge - $10.50 per meter per month.
      (2)   Maximum load charge - $5 per KW for all KW.
      (3)   Energy charge - $ 0.0329 per KWH for  all KWH.
      (4) Minimum charge shall be the customer charge plus the maximum load charge.
      (5)   Determination of maximum load and measurement of energy:  maximum load in KW shall be measured by suitable instruments provided by the utility and in any month the maximum load in KW shall be measured by suitable instruments provided by the utility and in any month the maximum load shall be the average number of kilowatts in the recorded 30- minute interval during which energy metered is greater than in any other 30-minute interval in such month. Energy shall be measured by suitable integrating instruments provided by the utility. For billing purposes, the billing maximum load shall be the greater of the maximum load occurring during the month or twenty (20) KW.
   (D)   Industrial power service.
      (1)   Maximum load charge - $12.34 per KVA of billing maximum load.
      (2)   Energy charge.
 
Use per Month
Rate/KWH
All
$.016631
 
      (3)   Minimum charge.  The monthly minimum charge shall be the maximum load charge.
      (4)   Measurement of maximum load and energy. Maximum load shall be measured by suitable instruments provided by the utility, and in any month the maximum load expressed n kilovolt-amperes shall be the average number of kilowatts in the 30-minute interval in such month during which the energy metered is greater than in any other 30-minute interval in such month, divided by the average lagging power factor (expressed as a decimal) calculated for the month. Energy shall be measured by suitable integrating instruments provided by the utility.
      (5)   Billing maximum load. The billing maximum load for any month shall be the maximum load for the month, but in no month shall the billing maximum load be less than 100 kilovolt-amperes.
      (6)   Metering adjustment. When the measurement of energy is made at the primary voltage of the transmission or distribution line used to supply  the customer, the maximum load and energy measurements shall be multiplied by 98% to convert  such measurements to the equivalent of metering at the utility’s secondary voltage.
      (7)   Equipment supplied by customer. When customer furnishes and maintains the complete substation equipment, including any and all transformers, and/or switches and/or the equipment necessary to take his entire service at the primary voltage of the transmission or distribution line from which it is received, a credit of $.25 per KVA of billing maximum load will be applied to each month’s net bill.

      (2)   Ownership of system. All facilities installed by the utility for service hereunder including all fixtures, controls, poles, transformers, secondary lines, lamps and other equipment shall be owned and maintained by the utility. All service and necessary maintenance will be performed only during regularly scheduled working hours of the utility. Non-operative lamps will normally be restored to service within two working days after notification by customer.
      (3)   Additional facilities. When facilities not provided for in the above charges are required for the installation of lamp, customer will pay in advance of installation the cost of such facilities required to supply service from the most suitable existing pole of utility to the point designated by customer for the installation of lamp.
