Medium Loads

Schedule 20

This schedule is available in all territory served by the PUD for commercial, industrial, governmental, institutional, agricultural, and multiple residential customers whose actual Billing Demand was at least 100 kW once during the most recent twelve consecutive months, or whose estimated future Billing Demand, as estimated by the PUD, is at least 100 kW for one or more months during the twelve consecutive months following commencement of service under this schedule, or whose actual energy usage was at least 30,000 kWh per month once during the most recent twelve consecutive months.

The PUD may, in its sole discretion, require the Customer to execute a contract as a condition of receiving service under this rate schedule if the customer receives service from the PUD at the primary voltage level, where the PUD has provided special undertakings to the customer, or in other circumstances where the PUD judges that a contract may be prudent. Unless otherwise specified in the contract, such contract will commence on its effective date and will, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the provisions of the contract, continue until such time as the customer no longer receives service under this rate schedule or the contract is terminated by mutual agreement of the PUD and the customer.

This schedule is not available for stand-by service, partial requirements service or service to seasonally disconnected loads with the exception of that portion of a load participating in the PUD’s Net Metering Program. The portion of a customer’s load participating in the PUD’s Net Metering Program, defined as the nameplate capacity of the electric generator identified in the customer’s Net Metering Agreement with the PUD, shall be eligible for service under this schedule.

This schedule does not apply to a “New Large Single Load” as defined in Rate Schedule 37. Such loads shall be served under Rate Schedule 37 - New Large Single Loads. 

Service is sixty Hertz alternating current delivered to one Point of Delivery. The PUD reserves the right of final determination of voltage and phase of service. Where mutually agreeable to the customer and the PUD, and at the option of the PUD, as indicated in Section 3.5 of the contract, service may be metered on the primary side of the distribution transformer.

The monthly charges shall be the greater of: (i) the Regular Charge or, (ii) the Minimum Charge.

(i) Regular Charge
The Regular Charge is the sum of the:

  • Customer Charge: 37 cents per day
  • Demand Charge:
    • First 100 kW per month of Billing Demand: $0 per kW – month
    • Over 100 kW per month of Billing Demand: $5.12 per kW - month
  • Energy Charge:
    • First 30,000 kWh per month: 9.04 cents per kWh
    • Over 30,000 kWh per month: 6.98 cents per kWh 

(ii) Minimum Charge
The Minimum Charge shall be 54 cents per day plus 2.425 cents per kW per day for all connected load in excess of 10 kW. 

Service under this rate schedule is subject to the limitations on liability and other terms and conditions of service specified in the PUD’s Electric Service Regulations and Rate Schedule 82. 

The above rates are subject to proportional increases to compensate for any gross revenue tax imposed by any municipal body or other governmental body having jurisdiction upon the PUD. 

A customer receiving service under this rate schedule whose electric power usage falls below the usage criteria shall be transferred to another Rate Schedule for which it qualifies as soon as is practical. Upon the expiration of the Term or earlier termination of any of the Customer Service Documents for any reason, the Customer shall, if it requires continued electric service, commence taking service under the then-applicable retail tariff prescribed by the PUD for firm service to customers in its class; provided, however, that any such service shall be subject to availability.
