High Load Factor Conservation Credit:

To any demand customer served under the GSD tariff which had a billable demand level which exceeded 40 kW, and whose load factor averaged sixty-five percent (65%) or higher during six of the previous twelve monthly billing periods. The account must be a current paying customer for the previous twelve months. For any billing period for which a demand customer’s load factor shall be 60 percent or higher, a high load factor conservation credit will be applied to the customer’s bill as shown below.

70 to 74 percent $-1.50 per kW demand charge
75 percent and higher $-2.00 per kW demand charge

The customer's load factor (LF) for any billing period shall be determined by the following formula: LF = ME/ (MPD*DBP*24) Where: ME is metered energy in kWh for the billing period. MPD is metered peak demand in kW for the billing period. DBP is the number of days in the billing period. The load factor as determined by the above formula will be expressed as a whole percent amount with fractional amounts being disregarded.
