Power Cost Adjustment Clause

I. APPLICATION This adjustment clause is applicable to electric service furnished under all rate schedules of the Cooperative.

II. POWER COST ADJUSTMENT There shall be added to each monthly bill for service an adjustment per kilowatt-hour (kWh) based upon the cost of power of its power supplier. This adjustment per kWh, rounded to the nearest $0.00001, will be determined as follows: Power Cost Adjustment (PCA-WST) = FCA-WST + NFPA-WST + T Where: FCA-WST = Fuel Cost Adjustment per kWh determined monthly under Fuel Cost Adjustment Clause FCA-WST. NFPA-WST = Non-Fuel Power Adjustment per kWh determined annually as follows: NFPA-WST = NFPe/kWhs - PCb Where: NFPe is the Expected Non-Fuel Power Cost (net of EEDS), calculated in December of each year, for the subsequent calendar year. KWhs is the total kWh sales of all schedules subject to PCA-WST during the previous twelve month period. PCb is the Power Cost amount of $0.028834 included in the base rates. T is an adjustment per kWh to correct for the variance in non-fuel power cost and recovery in previous periods. This value is determined by dividing the cumulative over-recovery or under-recovery of non-fuel power costs by the system kWh sales, net of EEDS sales, for the twelve (12) month period ending with the current month.

Fuel Cost Adjustment Clause

I. APPLICATION This adjustment clause is applicable to electric services furnished under certain rate schedules of the Cooperative.

II. FUEL COST ADJUSTMENT There shall be added to each monthly bill for service an adjustment per kilowatt-hour (kWh) based upon the cost of fuel of its power supplier during the most recent calendar month for which actual costs are known. This adjustment per kWh, rounded to the nearest $0.00001, will be determined as follows: Fuel Cost Adjustment (FCA_ - (F*L) +/- S Where: F = Fuel cost per kWh purchased for its power supplier for the month. L = The average system loss factor determined by dividing the system kWh purchases for the last 12 months by the system kWh sales for the same period. S = An adjustment per kWh to correct for the variance in fuel cost and fuel recovery in previous periods. This value is determined by dividing the cumulative over-recovery or under-recovery of fuel costs by the system kWh sales for the last 12 months.
