The Billing Demand shall be the maximum kW registered or computed during any 15-minutes from the Cooperative's metering facilities within the current monthly billing period.  


The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Demand charges will be adjusted to correct for average power factors lower than 85%. This adjustment shall be made by increasing the measured demand 1% for each 1% by which the average power is less than 85% lagging.

    7) The Cooperative's facilities used to provide electrical service have definite capacity limitations and can be damaged by overloads. Therefore, the Consumer must notify the Cooperative prior to making alterations to the service entrance equipment so that facilities of proper capacity may be provided. The Consumer shall be responsible for all expenses and or damages to Consumer's facilities resulting from failure to give proper notice. The Consumer may also be subject to a contribution-in-aid of construction for work required to meet the Consumer's alterations.
