EXHIBIT 1 - POWER COST ADJUSTMENT

 

A Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) factor will be included in each bill for service rendered. The adjustment shall be the product of the total kilowatt-hours times the PCA.

The PCA will be adjusted quarterly (or less often as determined by the Public Utilities Board) based on increases/decreases in fuel cost, ash disposal fees, environmental fees and purchase power costs less a portion of off-system sales divided by the billed kilowatt hours during the period. The PCA will include adjustments for accelerated debt service and a credit to smooth our purchase power "spikes".

The current PCA is $  0.004087  kWh effective July 15, 2016 billing.
 

CITY OF ORRVILLE

 

EXHIBIT 2 - KILOWATT HOUR TAX

 

The kWh tax is based on actual kWh delivered to customers (including the municipality) on the distribution system, excluding federal facilities. If no meter is used, the usage will be estimated. The tax applies to all kWh distributed, even if there was no charge for service. The tax is based on the number of kWh's used     in a given month by a customer.

First 2,000 kWh used. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . $0.00465 per kWh
Next 2,001 to 15,000 kWh used . . . . . . . . . . . . $0.00419 per kWh
Over 15,000 kWh used . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$0.00363 per kWh

The above rates are based on a 30-day billing cycle. If your billing cycle is 30 days exactly, the above referenced rates will be used. If the billing cycle is less than or more than 30 days, the daily calculation will be used.
The daily calculation will be determined as follows:

Determine the number of kWh used during the billing cycle;

Divide that number by the number of days in the billing cycle (to come up with the daily average usage). Retain at least 5 decimal places (x.xxxxx) when calculating the daily average usage. 

Take the daily average usage and (for each block, round the tax amount to the nearest whole cent (x.xx))

— Multiply $0.00465 for the first 67 kWh distributed;

— Multiply $0.00419 for the next 68 to 400 kWh distributed;

— Multiply $0.00363 for the remaining kWh distributed.

The tax is the sum of the above multiplied by the number of days in the billing cycle.

All customers within the city limits of Orrville receive a credit on their monthly utility invoice of the above mentioned State KWH tax through their monthly utility invoice of the State KWH tax through the "Community Tax Credit", see Exhibit 3.  Those customers outside the city limits who are charged this tax do not receive the credit but their tax dollars are sent to the State by mandate.
