Rates and Charges

Estimation Methodologies, E

Availability

To all standard offer and direct access customers in the Cooperative’s Certificated Area.

Application

For the express purpose of bill estimation for all tariffs in the event a valid meter reading cannot be acquired. The Cooperative will make every reasonable attempt to secure an accurate reading of the customer’s meter. This tariff is not applicable to standby, supplementary or resale service.

Conditions for Estimated Bills

Estimated bills will be issued only under the following conditions:

  1.  Failure of a customer who reads their own meter to deliver their meter reading to the Cooperative in accordance with the requirements of the Cooperative billing cycle.
  2. Severe weather conditions, emergencies or other causes beyond the Cooperative’s control which prevent the Cooperative from reading the meter.
  3. Circumstances that make it dangerous or impossible to read the meter, including but not limited to: locked gates, blocked access to meters, threatening or abusive conduct of customers, vicious or dangerous animals or missing meters.
  4. Labor shortage due to circumstances such as unforeseen illnesses, natural
    disasters, or other extreme events; or other work stoppages beyond the control of the Cooperative.
  5. To facilitate timely billing for customers using load profiles.

Special Conditions for Prepaid Residential and Small Commercial-Energy Service (Schedules PRS and PSCE)

If there are communication issues that prevent the Cooperative from obtaining a valid kWh reading for customers receiving service under its Schedules PRS or PSCE, kWh readings will be estimated using the daily average use over the last three (3) months’ bills until a valid reading is obtained. If the customer has no usage history, Estimation Procedures A-3 or A-4, as applicable, will be used to estimate usage. When the valid reading results in a negative balance, the customer will be notified that they have two (2) business days to replenish the account to avoid disconnection for a negative balance. During the period of estimated billing, the customer will receive daily notices of the balance of their accounts by the notice method(s) established for that customer.

After seven (7) calendar days of no readings, the Cooperative will physically check and/or change the meter and obtain a valid reading. All estimated billings will be adjusted with actual data and if the reading causes the account to become negative, the customer will be notified that they have five (5) business days to replenish the account to avoid disconnection for a negative balance.

Estimated billing will not be used for longer than a seven (7) consecutive day period due to communication issues except where area-wide issues (such as weather or system outages) or a customer specific equipment issue (excluding replacing the customer’s meter) necessitates a longer period.

Notice of Estimation

Each billing statement based on estimated usage will indicate that it is an estimated bill and note the reason for estimation.

Estimation Procedures

Mohave Electric Cooperative currently utilizes a customer information system (CIS) and/or billing personnel for billing, bill calculations and bill estimations.

  1.  Bill estimation procedures and various conditions which may apply are described in detail. The various conditions described are not limited to only those mentioned.
    Condition Estimation Procedures
    1 A kWh estimate with at least one year of history for the same customer at the same premise, or new customer with at least one year of premise history Estimate using the kWh, same month one year prior and/or the amount of usage during the preceding month, from the same premise.
    2 A kWh estimate with less than 12 months of history for the same customer at the same premise Estimate using the kWh of the preceding month from the same premise.
    3 A kWh estimate with less than 12 months of history for a new customer, but with history at the premise Estimate using the kWh of the preceding month from the same premise.
    4 A kWh estimate with no prior consumption history Bill the fixed monthly customer charge, plus applicable taxes only. The kWh will be billed with the next valid read in accordance with the Arizona Administrative Code.
    5 A kW estimate with at least one year of history for the same customer at the same premise or new customer with one year of premise history Calculate the estimate using the kW, same month one year prior and/or the preceding month, from the same premise.
    6 A kW estimate with less than 12 months of history for the same customer at the same premise Calculate the estimate using the kW of the preceding month from the same premise.
    7 A kW estimate with less than 12 months of history for a new customer but with history at the premise Calculate the estimate using the kW of the preceding month from the same premise.
    8 A kW estimate with no prior consumption history Do not estimate. A service order is issued for a meter technician to obtain a valid read.
    9 Time-Of-Use estimate with at least one year of history for the same customer at the same premise or a new customer with at least one year of premise history Time-Of-Use has two readings, “On-Peak” and “Off Peak.” Calculate the estimate using the “On Peak” and “Off Peak” reads, the same month one year prior and/or the preceding month from the same premise.
    10 Time-Of-Use estimate with less than 12 months history for the same customer at the same premise Time-Of-Use has two readings, “On-Peak” and “Off Peak.” Calculate the estimate using the “On Peak” and “Off Peak” kWh  of the preceding month from the same premise.
    11 Time-Of-Use estimate with less than 12 months history for a new customer but with history on the premise Time-Of-Use has two readings, “On-Peak” and “Off Peak.” Calculate the estimate  using the “On Peak” and “Off Peak” kWh of the preceding month from the same premise.
    12 Time-Of-Use estimate with no prior consumption history for a new customer at new premise Bill the fixed monthly customer charge, plus applicable taxes only. The kWh will be billed with the next valid read in accordance with the Arizona Administrative Code.
  2. Variance in estimation methods for differing conditions.
    Examples of differing causes for estimation include, but are not limited to:tampering, energy diversion, damaged or destroyed meter, partial meter failure, and meter reading equipment failure.In the event the meter has been tampered with or destroyed, or energy diversion has occurred, the methods referred to in “Item A” above still apply, prorating the usage if the estimation period is less than a full billing cycle. Examples of such can include, but are not limited to the following:Tampering and/or Energy Diversion:A valid read was obtained on October 1, Year Two. A tampering or energy diversion is discovered on October 15th. The meter has the same reading from October 1, Year Two. An investigation reveals the service is active and electricity is being consumed. The same service history indicated a kWh usage of 900 kWh for the month of October Year One. A manual estimate will prorate based upon a daily average of the 900 kWh divided by the number of days in the history record the same month (31) for a total of 29 kWh per day, times the number of days tampered (15), for a final estimate of 435 kWh.If the service does not have a 12-month history, the same formula is used with the past 3- month average.

    In the event the investigation reveals evidence that the tampering or energy diversion occurred for a period exceeding one month, the Cooperative will use the applicable estimation procedure to the point in time that the tampering or energy diversion may be definitely determined, or 12 months.

    Meter Damaged/Destroyed:

    The same estimation procedure is performed as prescribed in “Item A” if it is determined that the damage or destruction is caused by the customer to the point in time that the damage or destruction may be definitely determined, or 12 months.

    In the event the damage or destruction is otherwise caused, the estimation procedure is the same as described in “Item A,” but the customer’s responsibility is limited to 3 months for residential customers and 6 months for all other classifications of customers.

    Partial Meter Failure:

    If a meter is found to be deficient in recording any portion of the actual usage, the kW and kWh are estimated based on the percentage of deficiency for a period limited to 3 months for residential customers and 6 months for non-residential customers.

    For accounts where it is determined that the meter has failed, a reading will be obtained from the new meter after 7 days. The usage will be determined by using the daily average calculated from the new meter, less 20%. Charges for under-billings of failed meters will be limited to 3 months for residential meters and 6 months for non-residential meters. In
    instances where the Cooperative believes the customer’s usage patterns were different during the failed period than those used to determine the estimate, then the Cooperative may adjust its estimate downward.

  3. Conditions when estimations are calculated by the CIS system.The CIS system calculates the estimate when the meter of a service does not record a valid read for the normal billing cycle for any of the reasons listed under “Conditions for Estimated Bills.”
  4. Conditions when estimations are made manually.The manual estimate is made by Mohave Electric Cooperative personnel when there is a partial meter failure, weather related differences (previous year’s usage is reflective of unseasonable or greatly varied temperatures), or there is tampering, or a damaged/destroyed meter for less than the normal billing cycle and the bill must be prorated.
  5. Procedures to minimize the need for using estimated data.If feasible, the meter reader is asked to return to the service premise for a valid read. If the service has access problems an Offsite Meter Reading (OMR) or Automated Meter Reading (AMR) device may be installed. However, the Cooperative shall have the right of safe ingress to and egress from the customer’s premises at all reasonable hours for any purpose reasonably connected with Cooperative property used in furnishing service and to exercise any and all rights secured to it by law or the Arizona Corporation Commission.
  6. Procedures for estimating first and final bills.First and final bills are not estimated unless the meter fails. If the reading is not recorded for the first bill, the first bill is issued for the fixed monthly charges plus applicable taxes only. The total kWh will be billed on the first valid read. The final bill is not issued until such time a valid read is secured.In the event of metering equipment that is damaged, destroyed or absent for the first or final bill, the estimate is the same as Items B and D above.In the event of metering equipment failure for the first or final bill, the estimate is the same as Items B and D above.In the event of metering equipment that is damaged, destroyed or absent for an account with a demand reading, for the first or final bill, the kWh and/or kW estimate is based on the connected equipment operating characteristics.
  7. Procedure for estimation using customer specific data.If there is no service history available on which to base an estimate, the kWh and/or kW estimate is based on the connected equipment operating characteristics.

Electric Sales to the Cooperative must be single phase or three phase, 60 Hertz, at one standard voltage as may be selected by customer (subject to availability at the premises).

Definitions

Definitions below and contained in A.A.C. R14-2-2302 (some of which are set forth below) apply to Net Metering offered under this Tariff.

  1. Annual Average Avoided Cost (“AAAC”) means the average annual wholesale fuel and energy costs per kWh charged by the Cooperative’s wholesale power supplier(s) during the calendar year, determined based upon the Cooperative’s audited financial statement for the applicable Calendar Year. The Cooperative will submit an updated Net Metering Service Tariff to the ACC no later than July 15 each year for approval of the Annual Average Avoided Cost. The current avoided kWh cost, once approved by the ACC, will be available at every Cooperative office and will continue in effect until the next AAAC is effective, which shall be December 1st following the annual filing of an updated Net Metering Service Tariff, unless suspended or otherwise ordered by the Commission, prior thereto.
  2. Calendar Year means January 1 through December 31, for the purpose of determining the billing credit for the balance of any credit due in excess of amounts owed by the customer to the Cooperative.
  3. Combined Heat and Power or CHP means a system that generates electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system such that the useful power output of the facility plus one-half the useful thermal energy output during any 12-month period must be no less than 42.5 percent of the total energy input of fuel to the facility.
  4. Customer Supply means energy (kWh) from a customer-owned Net Metering Facility that exceeds the customer’s load at a point in time and is fed back into the Cooperative’s electric system, as metered by the Cooperative.
  5. Customer Purchase means energy (kWh) that is provided from the Cooperative to the customer to serve the load that is not being served by a customer-owned Net Metering Facility, as metered by the Cooperative.
  6. Excess Generation means the Customer Supply (kWh) less the Customer Purchase (kWh) over a monthly billing period. For time-of-use rates the Excess Generation corresponding to the on and off peak periods is computed for on-peak and off-peak periods over the monthly billing period. (Not to be less than zero.)
  7. Firm Power means power available, upon demand, at all times (except for forced outages) during the Contract Period from the customer’s facilities with an expected or demonstrated reliability which is greater than or equal to the average reliability of the Cooperative’s firm power sources.
  8. Fuel Cell means a device that converts the chemical energy of a fuel directly into electricity without intermediate combustion or thermal cycles. The source of the chemical reaction must be from Renewable Resources.
  9. Net Metering Facility means a facility for the production of electricity that:
    • Is operated by or on behalf of the customer and is located on the customer’s premises;
    • Is intended to provide part or all of the customer’s requirements for electricity;
    • Uses Renewable Resources, a Fuel Cell or CHP to generate electricity;
    •  Has a generating capacity less than or equal to 125% of the customer’s total connected load, or in the absence of customer load data, capacity less than or equal to the customer’s electric service drop capacity; and Is interconnected with and can operate in parallel with the Cooperative’s existing distribution system.The customer’s 125% total connected load limit shall be determined:
    • In the absence of demand data (for residential and small business) the highest 12 months (Calendar Year) kWh consumption in the previous three years will be divided by 2190 (to determine the 100% capacity level in kW which will achieve a “net zero” home or business) and multiplied by 125%.
    •  For customers with a demand history it will be 125% of the highest demand in the most current 12 month period.
  10. Partial Requirements Service means electric service provided to a customer that has an interconnected Net Metering Facility whereby the output from its electric generator(s) first supplies its own electric requirements and any excess energy (over and above its own requirements at any point in time) is then provided by the Cooperative. The Cooperative supplies the customer’s supplemental electrical requirements (those not met by their own generation facilities). This configuration may also be referred to as the “parallel mode” of operation.
  11. Renewable Resource means natural resources that can be replenished by natural processes, including biomass, biogas, geothermal, hydroelectric, solar or wind as defined in A.A.C. R14-2-2302.
  12. Standard Retail Rate Schedule means any of the Cooperative’s retail rate schedules with metered kWh charges.
  13. Time Periods – Mountain Standard Time shall be used in the application of this rate schedule. Because of potential differences of the timing devices, there may be some variation in the timing for the pricing periods. In most instances the variation should not exceed 15 minutes. On-peak and off-peak time periods will be determined by the applicable Standard Retail Rate Schedule.

Metering

Customers served under this Tariff will require a bidirectional meter that will register and accumulate the net electrical requirements of the customer and shall have other capabilities similar to meter that is being replaced or that would be installed for the service (e.g., smart metering capabilities). The Cooperative will install such a meter at the customer’s Net Metering Facility if proper metering is not already present. The incremental metering costs for bidirectional metering and the facility meter will be incurred by the Cooperative.

  • During the billing period for:
    1. Customer Purchases in excess of Customer Supply
      Cooperative shall bill the customer for the net kWh supplied by the Cooperative in accordance with the Cooperative’s applicable Standard Retail Rate Schedule.
    2. Customer Supply in excess of Customer Purchases (Excess Generation)
      Cooperative shall credit the customer the Excess Generation kWh in subsequent billing periods to reduce the kWh supplied (not kW or kVa demand or customer charges).
  • For customers taking service under time-of-use rates, Customer Supply and Customer Purchases will be segmented by on-peak and off-peak periods. Excess Generation kWh credits will be applied to the time-of-use periods in which the kWh were generated by the customer.
  • Basic Service Charges and Demand charges (either metered or contract) and all other elements of the Cooperative’s applicable Standard Retail Rate Schedule will continue to apply in full, except that the monthly “Customer Charge” for the applicable Optional Time-of-Use Rate will be applied whether or not the customer has elected the Time-of-Use rate; provided, however, the customer charge for small commercial net meter service customers shall have the same differential with Schedule SCS-E (Small Commercial Service – Energy) customers as exists between the customer charge for Schedule R (Residential service) and the customer charge for Schedule RTOU (Residential Time-of-Use service).
  • For the last billing period of each Calendar Year or for the last billing period at the time the customer discontinues taking service under this rate schedule:The Cooperative shall issue a billing credit to the customer for any remaining Excess Generation balance. In the event the customer’s electric service is terminated, after applying a billing credit for any Excess Generation up to the amount the customers owe the Cooperative, the Cooperative shall issue a check for the remaining value of the Excess Generation balance. The payment or credit will be determined at the Cooperative’s Annual Average Avoided Cost, which shall be updated annually and are as specified below:Annual Purchase Rate (¢/kWh): $0.02532Any payment for Firm Power will be pursuant to a separate contract.
  • An Administrative Charge may be charged by the Cooperative to collect new or additional costs the Cooperative incurs associated with the provision of Net Metering service (such as additional data communication access and billing costs) upon filing with and approval of such charge by the Arizona Corporation Commission pursuant to A.A.C. R14-2-2305.

Contract Period

Any applicable contract period(s) will be set forth in an Agreement between the customer and the Cooperative.
