Electric Space Heating - Rate Schedule "E"
To qualify for the Off-Peak rate, the loads must be metered separately. Space heating must be a minimum of 8 KW and Off-Peak Storage Water Heating must be a minimum of 100 gallon capacity or combination thereof.
Off-Peak is available to all members that have utility approved electric space heating equipment of at least 8 KW, subject to the rules and regulations the Off-Peak Agreement.
Loads controlled under our Off-Peak Program are controlled 14 hours each day. Off-Peak means the power is off during normal daytime hours, and on late night hours. (Example: radio receiver receives a signal from our power supplier to turn on at 10:00 p.m. in the evening. The power is on for 8 hours, until 6:00 a.m. in the morning. Another signal is sent mid-day, and will be on for 2 hours.) Power is on for 10 hours and off for 14 hours in a 24-hour period of time.
The radio receiver and meter are both supplied by the Cooperative.
Brick Storage Units and floor cable heat are examples of loads that qualify for Off-Peak. Heating loads must be 8 KW or larger to qualify. Electric water heaters require a minimum of 100 gallon capacity.
