commercialGP&L is committed to providing reliable and competitively priced electric service to our customers.

General Service – Small (GS-S)

Your total monthly bill is equal to the sum of:

  • Monthly Customer Charge
  • Applicable Energy Charge multiplied by the number of kilowatt hours used
  • Recovery Adjustment Factor multiplied by the number of kilowatt hours used
GS-S Charges
Customer Charge (monthly)
$11.55
Energy Charge

First 2,000 kWh used

$0.0602 per kWh

Each kWh above 2,000 kWh

$0.0549 per kWh
Recovery Adjustment Factor*
$0.0469

*Recovery Adjustment Factor: Each electric customer utility billing shall contain a Recovery Adjustment Factor, expressed as a charge per kWh, which will allow for the recovery of the electric system’s total revenue requirements not recovered by the Customer Charge and Energy Charge, while maintaining a competitive market position. The Managing Director of the Electric Department shall determine and approve a Recovery Adjustment Factor each month.

Demand limitations:

  • When the customer’s monthly usage exceeds 7,300 kWh for two consecutive months, and if measured demand exceeds 20 kW thereafter, the customer shall have the option to change to GS-L rate for a minimum of one year.
  • When the customer’s monthly measured demand exceeds 30 kW for two consecutive months, the customer shall be transferred to the GS-L (Code 314) rate for a minimum of one year.

General Service – Large (GS-L)

Your monthly rate has two components:

Billing demand: The demand shall be the kW supplied during the 15-minute period of maximum use during the current month, as determined by utility’s demand meter, but not less than 70 percent of the maximum kW similarly determined during the previous billing months of May, June, July, August, September or October in the 12 months ending with the current month, nor less than 20 kW.

Power factor: Customer must maintain a power factor in accordance with requirements of ERCOT Protocol 3.15.2 or any subsequent applicable ERCOT power factor requirements. If the power factor falls below the ERCOT standard for any three consecutive months in a 12-month period, customer shall install all necessary internal equipment to increase the power factor to as near unity as possible. If the power factor in any three consecutive months in a 12-month period is less than the ERCOT standard, metered demand for billing purposes will be adjusted by the formula:

Adjusted demand  =   Metered demand x ERCOT required power factor
   Most recent month’s power factor

 

Metered demand will be adjusted, retroactively, for the three consecutive month billing periods that the power factor is less than the ERCOT standard. For each of these three consecutive month billing periods, the customer shall be charged, retroactively, for demand based on the difference of the month’s adjusted demand less the corresponding month’s metered demand multiplied times the demand charge effective for the month. For purposes of billing the demand, the adjusted demand shall be considered incremental to the metered demand. For each month after the three consecutive month billing periods that the power factor falls below the ERCOT standard, the customer’s demand charge shall be the adjusted demand times the demand charge effective for the month.
