Basic Facilities Charge                                    $0.74 per day

 Energy Charge per kWh                                 $0.125000 per kWh


The minimum monthly charge under the above rate shall be the basic facilities charge for all members served under this rate schedule except those members for which a higher minimum monthly bill is required under the cooperative's standard policy because of special circumstances by the member affecting the cooperative's cost of rendering service.  Minimum monthly billing requirements are further explained below under Special Provisions.


 1)   The charges computed at the above monthly rate shall be subject to applicable South Carolina Sales Tax, franchise fees, assessments, and surcharges imposed by any governmental authority.

 2)   The minimum Contract Period for service provided under this schedule shall be one (1) year.

 3)   The amount calculated at the above rate is subject to be adjusted monthly by the Cooperative's projected wholesale power cost.  The rate shall be adjusted by a TIER (Times Interest Earned Ratio) adjustment factor to cover wholesale power cost changes and a rate necessary to maintain TIER as set forth by the mortgage agreements between the cooperative and its approved lending agencies.

4)      A contribution‐in‐aid to construction may be required to provide additional capacity adequate to serve abnormal electrical load.

 5)    This rate schedule includes cost for installed facilities adequate to serve a 200A service entrance rating.  If the Cooperative is required to install excess facilities without anticipated additional electric usage there will be a required contribution‐in‐aid to construction as calculated using the approved cooperative line extension policy.

  6)    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.  The Consumer should contact the Cooperative for information concerning charges for such work.

7)     Intermittent service connections and disconnections can be subject to an operating service charge of not less than $30.00.

  8)   Bills are due upon receipt.  Bills are delinquent 22 days from the Billing Date and subject to a late payment charge on the current bill equal to ten percent (10%) of the first $25 and an additional two percent (2%) thereafter.  Those unpaid after 30 days are subject to service disconnection.

9)   The basic monthly bill will be increased by $12.00 for three phase service.

 10)   The normal point of delivery shall be the point of attachment at a location as designated by the Cooperative.

11)   Temporary service or construction service shall be supplied at a single point of delivery and in accordance with the Cooperative's Line Extension Plan.
