The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as nearly as practicable. Power factor may be measured anytime. Should such measurement indicate that the power factor at the time of his maximum demand is less than 85%, the demand for billing purposes shall be the demand as indicated or recorded by the demand meter multiplied by 85% and divided by the percent power factor.
The base monthly charge under the above rate shall be $24.84. Where it is necessary to extend or reinforce existing distribution facilities, the monthly charge may be increased to assure adequate compensation for the added facilities. Where the charge is increased in accordance with the terms of this section, additional energy and demand shall be included in accordance with the foregoing rate schedule.
The Minimum monthly charge is the Base Charge, or $1.00 per KVA of required transformer capacity, whichever is greater.
