Power Procurement Cost Adjustment (PCA)


All electrical usage in the Service Area may be subject to application of a Production Cost Adjustment (PCA).  The rates, as defined above, include a Production Cost Base of $0.06700 (summer) and $0.05925 (winter).

Whenever the total monthly Production Cost exceeds, or is less than, the Production Cost Base, a Production Cost Adjustment may be included in the billing charges.  The adjustment shall be calculated in accordance with the following formula and shall include a loss adjustment based upon the previous year's sales and purchases data.

PCA = Actual Average Monthly Cost x (1 + Loss Factor) - Base Cost

Production costs shall include all costs of purchased power and energy.  The Loss Factor shall be equal to the difference, expressed as a fraction, between net system energy purchased for the previous year and annual retail sales for the same period.
