What is a Service Availability Charge?
The Service Availability Charge covers all of the costs associated with providing and maintaining an electrical distribution system capable of providing power on a 24/7 basis. This includes items like poles, wires, transformers, substations, meter testing, buildings and maintenance, insurance, computer systems and software, and much more. The intent of the Service Availability Charge is to help recover these fixed costs of providing service to our members. To make service available to all members, no matter how far off the beaten path, cooperatives need to have some form of service availability charge. This charge helps to cover the minimum costs that are required to deliver service to every meter on the system - costs that remain no matter how much electricity is sold.
General Terms: All bills are due in full by the date indicated on the statement. After the due date, a 5 percent (of energy charges) penalty is applied. Services will be disconnected if payment is not made in full or if arrangements are not made for a delayed payment within 20 calendar days of the due date. If required payment is not received by 8:00 a.m. on the date of disconnection, a $35 collections fee is assessed prior to reconnection. Reconnections after business hours until 8:00 p.m. will be charged a reconnection fee of $100. In addition, the member agrees to pay for the repair of damaged equipment resulting from anything except natural causes.
A service activation fee of $25.00 will be charged for service activation at each location during normal working hours.
