1. RATE SCHEDULES
A copy of all available Rate Schedules
and the General Terms and Conditions for Electric Service
is on file with the IURC and is also available at the business
office of Utility.
The IURC has continuing jurisdiction over all available Rate Schedules. Any Rate Schedule may be revised or changed from time to time in the manner prescribed by the IURC, or by other applicable laws, and any such changes, when approved by the IURC, will supersede the present Rate Schedule.
The General Terms and Conditions for Electric Service sets forth the conditions under which service is to be rendered, and governs all classes of service to the extent applicable. In case of conflict between any provision of Rate Schedule and the General Terms and Conditions for Electric Service, the provisions of the Rate Schedule shall prevail.
2. APPLICATION OR CONTRACT
A written application or contract may
be required by Utility before service will be provided,
which, when accepted by Utility, shall constitute the agreement
between Utility and Customer. Utility shall have the right
to reject any application for any valid reason.
Utility may require a minimum billing agreement whereby the installed cost of facilities is amortized over 36 months. If the customer's monthly bill falls below the amortized monthly payment, the customer may be required to pay the difference or the customer pays either the monthly electric bill or the amortized payment amount, which ever is greater.
No agent or employee of Utility has the authority to amend, modify, alter or waive any part of any Rate Schedule or any provision included in the General Terms and Conditions for Electric Service.
In written contracts, no promises, agreements or representations of an agent or an employee of Utility shall be binding unless such promises, agreements or representations were incorporated in the contract before its execution and approval.
The benefits and obligations under any contract shall be binding upon the successors and assigns, survivors and executors or administrators, as the case may be, of the original parties for the full term of the contract; provided, however, that no assignment shall be made by Customer without first obtaining Utility's written consent. Utility may require the successor either to execute with the Utility an assignment agreement wherein the successor-customer assumes and agrees to be bound by the original contract, or to execute a new contract for service.
3. RATE SCHEDULE SELECTION
A copy of the rates, rules and regulations will be furnished
to the customer upon application at the Utility's office. Customer
shall designate the rate schedule on which the application or
contract shall be based when more than one rate schedule is
available for the service requested. Utility will assist Customer
in the selection of the rate schedule best adapted to customer's
service requirements, provided, however, that the Utility does
not assume responsibility for the selection or that customer
will at all times be served under the most favorable rate schedule.
Customer may change the rate schedule selection to another applicable rate schedule at any time by either written notice to the Utility and/or by executing a new contract for the rate schedule selected, provided that the application of such subsequent selection shall continue for 12 months before any other selection may be made. In no case will utility refund any monetary differences between the rate schedule under which service was billed in prior periods and the newly selected rate schedule.
4. PREDICATION OF RATES
Utility's rate schedules, except as provided for in items (l), (2), and (3) hereunder, are predicated upon the supply of service to one premises, at one standard voltage, at one service connection and through one meter for the ultimate use by one customer. Premises as used herein shall mean a distinct portion of real estate on which is located the living quarters for the use of a single family, or the main building or main operation of a commercial or industrial customer and which may include the immediate outlying or adjacent buildings used by the same customer, provided the use of service in the immediate outlying or adjacent building is supplemental and is similar to the type of service used in the main residence, main building or main operation.
(1) When service is supplied to an individual residential
dwelling unit primarily for serving one family and where boarders
or roomers are accommodated for incidental income, the service
will be provided under the residential rate schedule.
(2) When service is supplied to a residential dwelling unit where the use is primarily for the accommodations of roomers or boarders, the service will be provided under the commercial rate schedule, unless separate circuits are furnished by customer to permit the Utility to separately meter and bill the residential and commercial uses.
(3) When the principal use of service supplied to a residential dwelling unit is for residential purposes, but a small amount of energy will be used for nonresidential purposes, such nonresidential use will be permitted only when the equipment for such use is within the capacity of a 120 volt, 30 ampere branch circuit (or is less than 3000 watts capacity) and the nonresidential use is less than the residential use on the premises. When the nonresidential equipment and/or use exceeds the above stated limits, customer will be required to separate his wiring so that the nonresidential use may be metered separately, and the nonresidential use will be billed under the appropriate nonresidential rate schedule or the entire service will be billed under the appropriate nonresidential rate schedule.
Except for the above stated provisions, when service supplied on one premises involves more than one service classification, or one standard voltage or one service connection, each such service shall be separately metered and billed unless the rate schedule specifically provides for more than one voltage and the combining of the meter readings, or when the service is supplied in such manner for Utility's operating convenience or to meet legal requirements.
5. SERVICE DEPOSITS
Customers applying for residential service may be asked to
make a service deposit unless customer can furnish the Utility
a letter of good payment record from another utility. For
all other service customers, a service deposit equal to 1/6
of customer's expected annual billing may be required.
A new or additional deposit may be required from a present customer who receives disconnect notices for two consecutive months, or any three months in a preceding twelve-month period, or whose service has been disconnected for nonpayment.
No deposit will exceed 1/6 of a customer's expected annual billing. If the amount of the deposit is more than $70, a new customer may make two (2) equal payments over a two (2) month period. A customer already receiving service may pay a deposit which exceeds $70 over two billing periods, or approximately 60 days.
A service deposit held for more than six (6) months shall earn interest from the date of the deposit. The rate of interest shall be based upon the one year United States Constant Maturity Securities. The interest rate shall be rounded to the nearest one-half (1/2) of one percent (1%). This rate will be set January 1st of each year.
Such service deposit plus accrued interest minus the amount
of any unpaid bills shall be returned to the customer upon
discontinuance of service. For residential customers, such
service deposit, plus accrued interest, shall be refunded,
without request by customer, after twelve (12) consecutive
months of timely payments. A customer can receive a maximum
of two (2) reminders during that 12-month period and still
have their deposit returned with interest earned.
6. RENDERING AND PAYMENT OF BILLS
Bills for service will be rendered monthly at intervals of
approximately thirty days and will be based on the charges set
forth in the are payable at the office of the Utility or to
its authorized collection agency.
All bills are rendered as "net" bills which will be subject to a late payment charge as prescribed in rate schedules approved by the IURC when not paid within 17 days following the mailing of the bill. When the seventeenth day falls on Sunday or on any legal holiday, the first business day thereafter shall be added to the seventeen day period.
Failure to receive a bill shall not entitle customer to pay the net bill after the designated date has passed. Upon request, Utility will inform Customer of the approximate date on which Customer should receive the bill each month and, if the bill is lost, the Utility will issue a duplicate.
Initial or final bills for service supplied for not less than 25 days or for more than 35 days will be calculated on the basis for the applicable rate schedule. A billing for a period shorter period than 25 days or longer than 35 days will have a prorated facilities charge based on a 30-day average for the applicable rate. This average will be multiplied by the actual days under 25 or over 35.
When the Utility is unable to obtain the reading of a meter after reasonable effort, it may estimate the reading and render a bill, so marked. In the event the Utility's meter fails to register properly for any reason, Utility shall estimate customer's energy use and/or other bill determinants during the period of failure based on such factors as customer's normal load and energy usage during a like corresponding period.
When the Utility is required to re-process a check rendered for payment of a customer's bill due to non-sufficient funds, a handling charge shall be added to customer's billing.
7. CUSTOMER'S REQUEST TO DISCONTINUE SERVICE
A customer who has not contracted for service for a specified
term may have service discontinued by giving notice at the Utility's
office of the date on which customer desires that service be
discontinued. The Utility will endeavor to obtain the final
meter reading on the date customer specifies in his notice,
but shall not be obligated to do so unless customer's notice
provides the Utility at least three working days. Customer shall
be obligated to pay for service rendered to customer until the
final meter reading is obtained by the Utility.
Customer who has contracted for service for a specified time may have service discontinued by giving notice at the Utility's office and agreeing to pay for service used to the date of disconnection. Customer shall also be liable for the minimum charges, which would be due the Utility for the remaining period of the contract in accordance with the contract provisions.
8. RE-CONNECTION CHARGE
When the Utility has discontinued service for nonpayment
of a bill, temporary removal of meters, changes in service,
or for any other cause, the Utility reserves the right to charge
a customer an amount for re-connection commensurate with the
cost of such re-connection.
9. SERVICE TO BE FURNISHED
When requested by the Utility, customer shall advise the
Utility fully with respect to the location of the premises where
service is desired to all equipment to be operated.
The Utility shall advise customer concerning the character of service to be supplied, and shall determine the location of the service connection, and the location of the meter.
As the facilities provided by the Utility for supplying service to customer have definite capacity limitations, customer shall not make any significant increase in requirements without sufficient advance notice to the Utility in order to provide a reasonable time in which the Utility may increase the capacity of its facilities. Failure to provide such notice to the Utility shall make customer liable for damages, which may be occasioned, to the meters or other facilities by overload.
Before the Utility will make any changes in its facilities to increase capacity to a customer, a new application or contract for service may be required by the Utility.
10. CUSTOMER'S INSTALLATION

The Utility shall have the right to inspect customer's installation to determine that the use of customer's equipment will not adversely affect the Utility's system or service supplied by the Utility to other customers and to refuse to commence service or to continue service when such installation is deemed not to be in good operating condition, but the Utility does not under any circumstances, assume any responsibility in connection with customer's installation.
11. EXTENSION OF SERVICE
Utility will extend its lines and facilities in accordance
with the rules and policies of Utility.
Whenever, in the opinion of the Utility, the necessary expenditure to make connection to an applicant for service is not warranted by the Utility's estimate of prospective revenues to be derived there from, or whenever, in the opinion of the Utility, the permanence of the customer's load is questionable, the Utility may require the applicant to make a deposit for line construction or service connection to guarantee the Utility the recovery of such expenditures.
12. UTILITY EQUIPMENT ON CUSTOMER'S PREMISE
