Cogeneration - 35kV - 41 (Backup) & 42 (Supplemental)

Effective on and after Jan. 1, 2018

AVAILABLE: Within Lincoln, Nebraska, and the LES Service Area.

APPLICABLE: A CUSTOMER under contract will receive service on this schedule as part of a contract for electric service if all of the following conditions are met:

  1. The CUSTOMER has generation facilities of at least 100 kWAC that maintain qualifying generation facilities status pursuant to Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulations. See Regulations under Sections 201 and 210 of the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 with Regard to Small Power Production and Cogeneration.
  2. The CUSTOMER'S generation facilities operate in parallel to LES' generation facilities.
  3. The CUSTOMER and LES have entered into an interconnection agreement covering the CUSTOMER'S generating facilities for which supplemental and backup power is being requested.

CHARACTER OF SERVICE: For power and energy deliveries through an LES-owned meter at 60 Hertz to the CUSTOMER within LES' available capacity. Supplemental power and energy shall be the power and energy required by the CUSTOMER over and above power and energy provided by the CUSTOMER'S generation, at the designated Point of Delivery.

BILL: Customer Charge + Demand Charge (Backup and Supplemental) + Facilities Charge + Energy Charge (Backup and Supplemental) + Excess kVAR Charge (if applicable) + All Riders (if applicable) + Service Fees (if applicable) + City Dividend for Utility Ownership + Sales Tax (if applicable); based on the RATE in effect, LES' Service Regulations and all contractual agreements (as applicable).

BILLING PERIOD: BILLS are rendered on the basis of the scheduled meter reading dates or a date agreeable with LES for final readings. Under normal conditions, BILLING PERIODS typically range from 27 to 35 days.

DEFINITIONS: The following definitions are applicable to this schedule and some refer to the metering diagram below.

Lincoln Electric System - Cogeneration Rate Schedule Diagram

All meters are detented so only power flowing in the indicated direction is measured. Generator Meter readings are multiplied by 1.003 to bring them to the same voltage as In Meter.

Backup Power-Demand: The integrated kilowatt load during each 30-minute period as measured by the lower of (a) the In Meter, or (b) the Contract Demand minus the Generator Meter, but not less than zero.

Backup Power-Energy: The sum of the 30-minute Backup Power-Demand over the total BILLING PERIOD in kilowatt-hours as measured by the In Meter and the Generator Meter, all divided by two (divided by two since there will be two readings per hour).

Contract Demand: The contract capacity specified in Exhibit A of the applicable Qualifying Facility Cogeneration and Interconnection Agreement. This quantity is approximately equal to the maximum net generating capability of the CUSTOMER'S qualifying facility in kilowatts as recorded by the Generator Meter. This amount shall apply for a minimum of 12 consecutive months.

On-Peak Period: The period occurring between the hours of 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. in the BILLING PERIOD.

Qualifying Facility-Demand: The integrated kilowatt output of the CUSTOMER'S generator during 30-minute periods as measured by the Generator Meter minus the Out Meter. If there is no Out Meter, the Out Meter reading will be zero. Depending on how the CUSTOMER'S generation support equipment is connected, the Qualifying Facility-Demand may be either gross or net generator output.

Qualifying Facility-Energy: The sum of the 30-minute Qualifying Facility-Demand over the total BILLING PERIOD in kilowatt-hours as measured by the Generator Meter, all divided by two.

Supplemental Power-Demand: The integrated kilowatt load during 30-minute periods as measured by the In Meter plus the Generator Meter minus the Contract Demand, but not less than zero.

Supplemental Power-Demand Delivered: The integrated kilowatt load during 30-minute periods as measured by the lower of (a) the In Meter, or (b) the In Meter plus the Generator Meter minus the Contract Demand, but not less than zero.
