(A) Applicable. This rate is available, upon application, to power consumers for power, including lighting, where the monthly maximum demand of the consumer is at least 500 kilovolt amperes each and every month of the preceding 12 month billing cycle and utilize all the energy at the secondary supply voltage from a point designated by the vendor. This rate is not available for supplementary service or auxiliary service.
(B) Character of service. Any 60 hertz, three phase secondary voltage with balanced three phase loading through a maximum of three meters serving one facility, as determined by the city, and as stated subsequently herein. All energy shall be secondary metered unless the city opts to install primarymetering in which case the kilowatt hours metered and the kilovolt amperes shall be adjusted to reflect primary consumption as subsequently stated herein.

(2) Energy charges:
First 300 kilowatt-hours per
kilovoltamp-demand $0.0350 per kWH
Over 300 kilowatt-hour per
kilovoltamp-demand $0.0280 per kWH
(3) Demand charges:
First 1,000 kilovoltamp-demand
or less $15.00 per kVAD
kilovoltamp-demand $13.00 per kVAD
(4) Distribution charges:
First 200,000 kilowatt-hours $0.0150 per kWH

(G) Minimum monthly charges. The demand charge for 500 KVA plus the energy and fuel adjustment charge for 50,000 kilowatt-hours, plus the fuel adjustment charge for energy actually supplied.
(H) Service charge for delayed payment. A penalty of 5% shall be added to all bills for which payment has not been received in the city building by 5:00 p.m. on the due date printed on the bill.
(I) Determination of billing demand. The billing demand shall be the greatest single 15-minute integrated demand ascertained in kilovolt amperes by instruments suitable for the purpose but the monthly billing demand so established shall in no event be less than 100% of the billing demand in the immediately prior December, January and February, nor less than 70% in the immediately preceding 11 months except for the months of December, January, and February where included in the 11-month span. These three months shall carry a 100% ratchet as noted above for not less than 500 kilovolt amperes.
(J) Contract requirements. At the option of the city, service under this rate schedule may only be available under a service contract with consideration for size, character and location of the consumer’s load and the cost of facilities to be furnished by the city for those consumers not taking service at the effective date of this rate schedule.

(a) Secondary metering at 120/240 volt, 4 wire delta, 3 phase; 120/208 volt, 4 wire wye, 3 phase; and 277/480 volt 4 wire wye, 3 phase; or
(b) Primary metering at 12,500 volt, 3 wire delta, 3 phase; and 7,200/12,500 volt, 4 wire wye, 3 phase or other higher primary voltages as they become available.
(L) Reconnection charge. When electric service has been disconnected for nonpayment, there shall be the following schedule of charges for reconnection: service requiring simple hookup by the meter reader during normal business hours (9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) a fee of $50; service requiring simple hookup by the meter reader after normal business hours, weekends and holidays, a fee of $75; service requiring complex hookup by a line crew during normal business hours (9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) a fee of $75; service requiring complex hookup by a line crew after normal business hours, weekends and holidays, a fee of $100.
