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
Green Choice (Green Rate Rider)**  $0.0100

*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.

**Green Choice (Green Rate Rider): Customer must enroll for a minimum of 12 months.

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:

Green Choice (Green Rate Rider)** $0.0100  $0.0100 

 **Green Choice (Green Rate Rider): Customer must enroll for a minimum of 12 months.

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: Pursuant to the City’s obligation to comply with ERCOT Protocol 3.15.2 (including any subsequent ERCOT power factor requirements), customers that have meters capable of interval demand readings shall comply with the requirements specified in this clause.  Sufficient static reactive power capability shall be installed by the customer to maintain the required ERCOT lagging power factor for the maximum net active power measured for customer’s facilities at the customer point of delivery.  If the City is subject to regulatory fines or penalties as a result of customer’s failure to meet the requirements specified in this clause, the City will charge customer for such fine or penalty and customer shall be responsible for compensating the City for the amount of the fine or penalty.  The City may make such changes to its system to mitigate the effects of customer’s non-compliance with requirements specified in this clause at the customer’s expense for the proportional cost of such changes.  In addition, for customers that fail to meet the requirements specified in this clause, billed demand shall be adjusted by the following formula:

Adjusted billed demand  =   Metered demand for the month x ERCOT lagging power factor 
Measured power factor for the month

 

Large Load Customer Service

This rate is available to distribution service customers whose monthly measured demand is at least 1,000 kW for at least two consecutive months of the previous twelve months. Customers that select this rate option are eligible for twelve or twenty-four month terms of service. Upon expiration of the applicable term of service, if the customer has not met the monthly measured demand requirement, then customer shall no longer be eligible for the Large Load Customer Service rate and shall be charged under an applicable service rate for the customer's level of service. Customer shall regain eligibility for the rate upon satisfactorily meeting the required monthly measured demand.

Customers that are a party to an economic development incentive agreement with the City that provides an electric rate or method of electric rate calculation may be ineligible to participate in this rate. Customers switching from LLC to GS-L shall be required to stay enrolled in GS-L for at least twelve months before moving back to LLC. This rate is not applicable to resale, temporary, standby, or supplemental service, except in conjunction with an applicable rider.

Your rate consists of the following components: 

  • Energy rate: Based on customer's load profile and characteristics and term of service, grossed up for distribution system losses.
  • Transmission rate: Based on GP&L's net transmission system cost and postage stamp expense, grossed up for distribution system losses. The transmission rate shall be adjusted after PUCT approval of each annual total ERCOT postage stamp rate.
  • ERCOT administration rate: Based on ERCOT's administration charges and fees at the effective date of the term of service, grossed up for distribution system losses. The ERCOT administration rate shall be adjusted upon ERCOT's implementation of new administration charges and fees.
  • Congestion rate: Based on GP&L's average congestion cost for the 12-month period preceding the effective date of the term of service, grossed up for distribution system losses.
  • Ancillary services rate: Based on GP&L's average ancillary services cost for the 12-month period preceding the effective date of the term of service, grossed up for distribution system losses.
  • Distribution service rate: $9.43 per kW

The foregoing rate components shall be grossed up by the percentage used by the City to determine its return on investment from GP&L into the City's general fund.

Power Factor Adjustment: Pursuant to the City's obligation to comply with ERCOT Protocol 3.15.2 (including any subsequent ERCOT power factor requirements), customers that have meters capable of interval demand readings shall comply with the requirements specified in this clause. Sufficient static reactive power capability shall be installed by the customer to maintain the required ERCOT lagging power factor for the maximum net active power measured for the customer's facilities at the customer's point of delivery. If the City is subject to regulatory fines or penalties as a result of customer's failure to meet the requirements specified in this clause, the City will charge customer for such fine or penalty and customer shall be responsible for compensating the City for the amount of the fine or penalty. The City may make such changes to its system to mitigate the effects of customer's non-compliance with requirements specified in this clause at the customer's expense for the proportional cost of such changes.

In addition, the City shall charge customer for failure to meet the requirements specified in this power factor requirement a power factor adjustment calculated as follows:

 Power factor adjustment =  ERCOT lagging power factor
 Measured power factor for the month

 
For customers not meeting the power factor requirements, the foregoing rate components shall be multiplied by the power factor adjustment.
