Wheeling Rate Applicable to Customers who are not subject to the Gross Revenue Tax:

Distribution Demand Charge:                                      $ 9.85 per kilowatt of Wheeling Demand

Transmission Demand Charge:                                   $ 1.668 per kilowatt of Wheeling Demand

 

Distribution Demand Ratchet Credit:  If the Customer’s own generation fails or is taken down for maintenance during a month, causing the Customer’s HVLGS demand to increase, the HVLGS rate Distribution Billing Demand will increase for the next 11 months, due to the ratchet on the Distribution Demand Charge.  As long as this increase in HVLGS load does not occur during the hour of Connecticut peak load, which determines GU’s capacity obligation, GU may calculate and provide a credit on the Wheeling Rate that reflects the amount of the HVLGS billing ratchet caused by the cessation of the Customer’s generation.

Measurement of Wheeling Demand:  The Department will continuously measure the 15-minute kilowatt demand in the billing month of the customer generation that is being wheeled by GU.  The Wheeling Demand shall be the greatest such measured demand during the billing month.

Force Majeure:  In a billing month in which Customer’s generation facilities are idled during more than 365 hours by an event of Force Majeure on GU’s delivery system, the Wheeling Demand Charges shall be prorated to the hours not affected by Force Majeure.

Notice of Load Change:  The Customer shall respond to any written request from GU concerning forecasts of the Customer’s load and generation.

Term of Contract:  One (1) year and thereafter until cancelled by six (6) months written notice.  A longer term may be required for an extensive installation.

Transmission Cost Adjustment:  An adjustment will be applied to every kWh sold to reflect any difference between the base transmission costs included in rates and the actual transmission costs charged to the Department.
