Additional Information

Rates are subject to all applicable billing adjustments. Each bill will be adjusted on a kilowatt-hour basis per Rate Schedule 203.1 for any variation in fuel and purchased power costs.

Rate classification and assignment is made by CoServ Electric in accordance with the availability and type of service provisions in its rate schedules. Rate schedules have been developed for the standard types of service provided by CoServ Electric.

If a Member's request for electric service involves unusual circumstances, usage or load characteristics not regularly encountered by CoServ Electric, a suitable rate classification may be assigned, or a special contract may be entered into. Special contracts shall be filed with the regulatory authority having jurisdiction.

For more information on Time-of-use rates, view Section 202.11 of the Tariff. To sign up, visit your online CoServ account.

A Power Cost Recovery Factor (PCRF) allows CoServ to adjust for changes in wholesale fuel costs. Because wholesale costs can fluctuate from month to month, CoServ uses the PCRF to more accurately calculate your bill. When our wholesale power costs go up, the PCRF increases, and vice versa. If the PCRF is a negative (as it has been since May 2009), we subtract it from the base rate to calculate your bill.
