Schedule GS-1 DG General Service – Single Phase – Distributed Generation Interconnection

Availability

This Rate Schedule is available to any Member of RushShelby Energy (the “Cooperative”) that is currently being billed under the Residential Electric Service Rate who has a qualified distributed generation system (DG System) of not more than 49 kW and who desire to interconnect such DG System with the Cooperative’s distribution system.

In order to qualify for this Rate Schedule, the Member must meet the DG System Requirements and Interconnection Requirements specified below. Total participation under this Rate Schedule is limited, on a first come first serve basis, to those residential Members of the Cooperative applying for this rate whose aggregate DG Systems name-plate rating is equal to or less than 0.1% of the Cooperative’s most recent peak load.

Metering & Billing

The Cooperative will utilize a net-billing process for all eligible DG Systems which are interconnected with the Cooperative’s distribution system. The Cooperative will provide (at the customer’s expense) and maintain (at the customer’s expense) all metering equipment necessary to implement net-billing. Under the net-billing process, the Cooperative will calculate on a monthly basis the charges due from the Member for all electric service provided by the Cooperative to the Member under the Net Billing Rate Schedule. The Cooperative will net against the amount due from the Member, an amount based on the electric service generated by the Member’s DG System and provided to the Cooperative based on the Credits contained hereinafter. If the Credits for the electric service generated by the Member that is provided to the Cooperative are less than the charges for the electric services the Cooperative provided to the Member, the Member will pay the Cooperative the net difference. If the Credits for the electric service generated by the Member that are provided to the Cooperative are greater than the charges for the electric services the Cooperative provided to the Member, the Member will receive a credit that can be used to reduce payments in future billing periods. If the Member discontinues operation of the DG System, any remaining credits will revert to the Member. In either case, the Member shall remain responsible for all applicable billed charges, including Member charges and demand charges.

Character of Service

Service under this schedule shall be alternating current, 60 Hertz, single-phase at voltage of approximately 120/240 volts three wire, or other voltage as might be mutually agreed upon.

Monthly Rate

  • Connection Charge: $35 per month
  • Energy Charge
    • January to March - All kWh per month: $0.1040 per kWh

In the case of cogeneration, net metering or an additional meter may be necessary. The cost of the upgrade or second meter shall be at the expense of the Member and ownership will be by the Cooperative.

Rate Adjustment

For purposes of calculating the customer’s energy credit (Credits shown above) pursuant to this rate schedule, the Cooperative’s purchased power cost for energy (excluding costs and kWh for Hoosier’s IPS rate and EDR rate) shall be calculated annually in January based on the actual wholesale power purchase cost for energy charged to the Cooperative for the prior calendar year.

Miscellaneous Charges

Non-Recurring Refer to Appendix

Schedule IPT: Industrial Power Tariff

Availability

Available in all territory served by the Cooperative, subject to the Cooperative’s Service Rules and Regulations.

Applicability

Applicable to consumers supplied at a single location who meet the following requirements for service:

  1. The consumer's monthly maximum demands must be at least 5,000 kW.
  2. The consumer takes service directly from a Hoosier Energy supplied transmission-to-distribution substation.

Type of Service

Service shall be three-phase, 60 hertz, at available standard voltages.

Monthly Rate

  • Connection Charge: $150 per month
  • Demand Charge: $15.35 per kW
  • Energy Charges:
    • On-Peak: $0.06000 per kWh
    • Off-Peak: $0.04523 per kWh
  • Excess Net kVARh charge: $0.00616 per kVARh

Billing Demand

Billing Demand shall be the highest consecutive 30-minute demand (the Non-Coincident Demand) during the peak hours of the month expressed in kilowatts, but in no event less than 75% of the highest billing demand used in any of the preceding 11 months, or 500 kilowatts, whichever is greater Peak hours are defined as those hours from 7 am to 11 pm, E.S.T., daily.

Billing kWh

The billing kWh shall be the actual kWh used during the billing month or 328.5 times the monthly billing demand.

Determination of Energy

On-Peak:

For the months of June through August, excluding Independence Day, On-Peak energy shall be all kilowatt-hours used during the period 2 pm to 8 pm E.S.T. – Monday through Friday.

For the months of December through February, excluding Christmas and New Years Day, On-Peak Energy shall be all kilowatt-hours used during the periods 7 am to 10 am E.S.T. and 6 pm to 9 pm E.S.T. – Monday through Friday.

Off-Peak:

Off-Peak Energy shall be all kilowatt-hours used during all hours other than on-peak hours as described above.

Power Factor

If the power factor (leading or lagging) at the time of the Non-Coincident Demand is determined to be less than 97%, the Non-Coincident Demand shall be adjusted separately by multiplying the Non-Coincident Demand by the ratio of the current target power factor percent 97% and the measured actual power factor percent at the time of the Non-Coincident Demand. If the AMPF (leading or lagging) is determined to be less than 95%, the “Excess Net kVARh” subject to the “Excess Net kVARh charge” is the difference between the actual measured Net kVARh amount and a calculated Net kVARh based upon the recorded kWh for the month and the targeted average monthly power factor of 95%. The Net kVARh calculation is based upon the standard Average Monthly Power Factor equation of:

The AMPF is equal to: kWh divided by (the square root of [kWh squared plus Net kVARh squared]).

Net KVARh is equal to: kWh multiplied by (the square root of [1 divided by {AMPF} squared] minus 1]).

Rate tariff equation
