      Where a transformer installation is used solely to furnish service to a single customer, the Municipality may meter the service on the primary side of the transformer or transformers and in such case the applicable monthly energy charge shall be reduced by two percent.  Where the transforming, controlling, regulating and protective equipment is owned by the customer, and the Municipality meters the service on the primary side of the transformer or transformers, the applicable monthly energy charge shall be reduced by an amount in addition to the above two percent reduction, subject to the approval of such transforming, controlling, regulating and protective equipment by the Manager.
      The amount of the additional reduction shall be determined as follows:
      Where a demand meter has been installed by the Municipality, the additional reduction shall equal the lesser of forty cents ($.40) per KVA of maximum monthly demand or three and one-half percent of the energy charge.
      Where a demand meter has not been installed by the Municipality, the additional reduction shall equal the lesser of twenty-five cents ($.25) per KVA of installed nameplate transformer capacity or three and one-half percent of the energy charge.
   (d)   Commercial-Large.
 
Energy Charge:
 
All kWh
$0.085 per kWh
Demand Charge:
 
All kW
$10.00 per kW of Billing Demand
Customer Charge:
$100.00 per meter
Minimum Charge:
Customer Charge plus Demand Charge
 
         The Billing Demand shall be equal to the highest measured fifteen-minute integrated or equivalent thermal kW demand witnessed during the billing period, but not less than 100 kW.
         Where a transformer installation is used solely to furnish service to a single customer, the Municipality may meter the service on the primary side of the transformer or transformers and in such case the applicable monthly Energy Charge and Demand Charge shall be reduced by two percent.  Where the transforming, controlling, regulating and protective equipment is owned by the customer, and the Municipality meters the service on the primary side of the transformer or transformers, the applicable monthly Demand Charge shall be reduced by $0.50 per kW of Billing Demand, subject to the approval of such transforming, controlling, regulating and protective equipment by the Manager.
   (e)   Power Supply Cost Adjustment Factor.  The Residential, Controlled Electric Water Heating, Commercial-Small and Commercial-Large Energy Charges set forth above shall be increased or decreased monthly by the Power Supply Cost Adjustment Factor (PSCAF).  The PSCAF shall be determined each month to the nearest $0.0000 per kWh by the following formula:
      PSCAF = [TPSC/TPE - BPSC] x ELF
      PSCAF = Power Supply Cost Adjustment Factor
      TPSC = Total Power Supply Cost, Excluding the Cost of Power to Serve Schedule E2 Rate Customers ($)
      TPE = Total Purchased Energy, Excluding the Energy Required  to Serve Schedule E2 Rate Customers (kWh)
      BPSC = Base Power Supply Costs = $0.0758 per kWh
      ELF = Energy Loss Factor = 1.07
   (f)   Excise (kWh) Tax Adjustment.  The Residential, Controlled Electric Water Heating, Commercial-Small and Commercial-Large rates set forth above shall be increased by an amount equal to the excise (kilowatt-hour) tax imposed on the City's electric distribution system under Ohio R.C. 5727.81.  Said increase shall be automatically adjusted to reflect any change in the kilowatt-hour tax imposed by Ohio R.C. 5727.81.
   (g)   Economic Development Rate “E”.
      (1)   Availability.  Economic development rate “E” shall be open to any new full requirements customer or any existing full requirements customer having measurable local growth where service is supplied at primary voltage and the new load is greater than 200 kW.  This rate is not available for street lighting or resale purposes.
      (2)   Nature of service.  Service shall be alternating current, sixty cycles, three-phase, 2,400 nominal volts or more, the supply voltage in each case to be determined by the Division of Hudson Public Power.
      (3)   Installation charge.  See Standard Rules and Regulations.
      (4)   Rate.  Rates will be subject to negotiation with the City, taking into consideration the customer's load and energy requirements and usage characteristics, the facilities and investment required to serve the customer and other matters relating to the service.
      (5)   Minimum charge.  The minimum charge shall be negotiated with the City.
      (6)   Delayed payment charges.  Any bill which is not paid within thirty days of the due date shown thereon shall have a delayed payment charge of one and one-half percent per month added to its net amount in accordance with Section 1048.04 .
      (7)   Special taxes.  Bills shall be increased to offset any specific tax or excise imposed by any government authority upon the electric utility's generation or the sale of electrical energy.
      (8)   Determination of maximum demand.  For new customers, the maximum demand, or rate of use of electric energy, shall be the greatest average load in kilowatts during any fifteen-minute period during each month as determined by instruments installed by the Division of Hudson Public Power for that purpose.
            For existing customers, unless the new load is separately metered, the maximum demand shall be the greatest average load in kilowatts during any fifteen-minute period during each month, less the average maximum demand for the twelve months prior to establishing service under this rate.
      (9)   Adjustment of maximum demand.  The Division of Hudson Public Power may measure or test the power factor of the customer's load during periods of maximum energy use.  If the power factor is found to be less than eighty-five percent lagging, the maximum kW demand shall be increased by the ratio that eighty-five percent bears to the power factor of the customer's load.
      (10)   Determination of billing demand.  The billing demand each month shall be the maximum demand for such month, but not less than sixty percent of the highest billing demand of the preceding eleven months, and in no case less than 200 kW.
      (11)   Term and form of contract.  Service shall be provided under a written contract which will include the rates, terms and conditions of service and be subject to Council approval.
      (12)   Rules and Regulations.  Service shall be pursuant to the Division of Hudson Public Power's Standard Rules and Regulations.
