The Fuel and Purchased Power Cost Adjustment permits the monthly adjustment of rates for the cost of energy incurred in supplying retail customers. All ZBPW rates are subject to the “Fuel and Purchased Power Cost Adjustment”. In applying the adjustment, the applicable rate per kWh shall be increased or decreased by the amount of the adjustment. Read more details in the rate sheet above.
If the average power factor during the billing period is .900 or higher, the capacity charge will be reduced by 2%. The credit shall not be used to reduce the minimum charge or the capacity charge when based upon 60% of the highest billing demand of the preceding 11 months.
If the average power factor during the billing period is less than .800, the capacity charge will be increased by the ratio between .800 and the customer’s average power factor during the billing period.
