Prior to the adoption of Ord. 19212 on 09/18/2006, Section 27-121.2 read as follows.

    (a) Availability. The sixty-nine-kV service rate is available for consumers located within one thousand (1,000) feet of an existing sixty-nine-kV transmission line, whose requirements exceed five thousand (5,000) kilowatts of capacity, subject to the rules and regulations of the water and light department.   A sixty-nine-kV service rate is available, however, due to the complexity of this type service and the volatility of the electric market, each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  A contract will be negotiated by the water and light director with final approval by the city council.

    (b) Type of service. The type of service shall be three-phase, sixty-hertz at sixty-nine-kV transmission voltage, where available.

    (c) Monthly rate charge. The monthly rate per kilowatt hour shall be as follows:

        Demand Charge:

            All kW of billing demand per kW . . . . $8.39


            Cost per KWH . . . . 0.030

    (d) Determination of billing demand. The billing demand will be determined from the highest thirty (30) minutes integrated kilowatt demand registered during the month by a suitable demand meter.

    (e) Billing demand. The monthly demand charge shall be the maximum thirty (30) minute kW demand measured during the billing month, but not less than the maximum billing demand established during the billing months of June, July, August and September of the preceding eleven (11) month billing period.

    (f) Service facility ownership. Each customer served under this rate shall provide at its sole risk, cost and expense, all facilities except metering equipment, including an approved transformer bank, circuit interrupters and other protective devices which will clear faults on the customer's side of delivery. Service will be supplied and metered at sixty-nine thousand (69,000) volts.

    (g) Minimum monthly bill. The minimum bill for any month will be ninety (90) per cent of the highest billing demand established during the summer months of June, July, August and September.

    (h) Payment in lieu of taxes and sales tax. In addition to the charge based on monthly rates as computed above, the total monthly charge for service shall include applicable sales taxes and in lieu of gross receipts tax payment equal to 7.5268 per cent of the monthly rate charge. Sales tax shall be applied to the total of the monthly rate charge and in lieu of gross receipts tax payment.

    (i) Power factor. The customer will at all times maintain a power factor of not less than ninety (90) per cent lagging. If the power factor is less than ninety (90) per cent, the measured kW demand will be multiplied by the ratio of ninety (90) per cent divided by the actual power factor to determine the adjusted measured demand to be used for determination of billing demand.

    (j) Fuel adjustment. In the event that a fuel adjustment cost is added to the city's retail rate structure in a manner to increase the cost of energy, that same fuel adjustment cost will be added to the cost of energy for bills rendered under this rate.

    (k) Contract period. The contract period shall be not less than one year with one-year advance notice of termination.
