Special agreement interruptible electric service is available under this schedule when customer makes written request and MMU determines that such requested electric service in specific customer application will be cost effective to MMU and its customers under the rates, terms, and conditions of electric service interruption included in this rate schedule.
Available to any single metered industrial customer for all power and energy uses. Service will be supplied from the Utility's Three-Phase distribution system for contract interruptible loads of 200 kilowatts or more.
Three phase, 60 cycles, at one of the standard secondary service voltages as approved by the Electric Department.
|Customer Charge (Per month):
|Demand Charge (Per kW):
|All kW per month
|Energy Charge (Per kWh):
|All kWh per month
|Energy Cost Adjustment
All Charges are subject to Energy Cost Adjustment.
The Billing Demand shall be determined by measurement and shall be the average kW demand during the 15-minute period of maximum kW use during the billing month.
Where service to a customer is measured at primary distribution voltage, the measured demand and energy will be decreased 2 percent for billing purposes.
Customer shall at all times maintain a power factor of not less than 90 percent lagging. If a customer's power factor is less than 90 percent lagging and the customer does not expeditiously take corrective action, MMU can, at its option, discontinue service or charge the customer an amount equal to 150 percent of the actual or estimated total cost (including material, labor, equipment and overhead expense) to install the necessary corrective equipment on MMU's lines to improve the customer's power at least 90 percent. Such charge also provides for the cost of future maintenance and replacement equipment.
Electric Service under this schedule is subject to all rules and regulations approved by the Board of Public Works of Marshall, Missouri.
MMU may make intentional interruptions at any time, at MMU's sole discretion. Economic interruptions are those interruptions caused by the cost of power (generated or purchased) exceeding the kWh energy rate of this schedule. Intentional interruptions are those interruptions caused by any emergency such that MMU is required to interrupt service to firm customers in order to protect the general public and preserve the integrity of MMU's electric system and the electric system of utilities which are interconnected with MMU's system
In the event of an interruption for emergency conditions, MMU will attempt to provide as much prior notice as possible but is in no way obligated to give notice prior to interruptions. Emergency conditions are deemed to exist at any time, in the sole judgment of MMU, that demands for electricity exceed or are expected to be likely to exceed MMU's available electrical supply for whatever reasons including, but not limited to, failure of generating units, transmission equipment or other critical facilities; and requirements or orders of governmental agencies.
In the event of any interruption for non-emergency purposes, MMU will provide at least one-hour notice prior to interruption.
Unintentional interruptions shall not be considered to be intentional interruptions, and shall not be subject to the limitation on interruptions contained in the contract. Unintentional interruptions are interruptions caused by an act of God, public enemy, strikes, governmental interference, lightning, thunderstorm, windstorm, flood, fire, explosion, or any matter or thing over which MMU has no control, which prevents MMU from making a timely request for interruption in accordance with the provisions of the agreement.
If, at any time, the customer fails in whole or in part to implement and maintain any requested load interruption, the customer shall pay to MMU as agreed damages, an amount of money calculated as the difference in billing to the customer as a full requirements customer applying the rates set forth in MMU appropriate rate schedule and the actual billing to the customer as set forth in this rate schedule.
If the customer experiences two occurrences of non-compliance in a year, in addition to the damages above, MMU may, at its option, elect to cancel the agreement immediately. In such event, the customer shall revert to the terms and conditions of the applicable rate schedule.
