You are hereby notified that The Intermountain Rural Electric Association (“the Association”) proposes to make changes to its Rates and Regulations to become effective September 1, 2020, or such later date as determined by the Association’s Board of Directors.

The proposed changes do not include a rate increase. They add optional tariff schedules for service to industrial consumers with loads exceeding 2,000 kW, revise an optional rider to exclude the new tariffs, and retire several tariffs for commercial service which are redundant.

PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE RATES AND REGULATIONS

The following changes to the Rates and Regulations are proposed:

Adopt a Coincident Peak Distribution Service (CPD) rate for non-residential consumers served at the Association’s primary distribution voltage with a minimum metered demand of 2,000 kW consisting of a $775.00 basic service charge, $8.04/kW basic demand charge, $16.21/kW coincident peak demand charge, and a $0.03510/kWh energy charge.

Adopt a Coincident Peak Substation Service (CPS) rate for non-residential consumers served at the Association’s available sub-transmission or distribution voltages at an Association substation with a minimum metered demand of 2,000 kW consisting of a $775.00 basic service charge, $6.76/kW basic demand charge, $15.95/kW coincident peak demand charge, and a $0.03450/kWh energy charge.

Adopt a Coincident Peak Transmission Service (CPT) rate for non-residential consumers served at available transmission voltages (at or above 44 kV) with a minimum metered demand of 2,000 kW consisting of a $1,650.00 basic service charge, $2.40/kW basic demand charge, $15.71/kW coincident peak demand charge, and a $0.03430/kWh energy charge.

Revise the Primary Voltage Service Rider (PVSR) to exclude those Industrial Service Consumers taking service under the Coincident Peak Transmission Service (CPT), Coincident Peak Substation Service (CPS), or Coincident Peak Distribution Service (CPD) from eligibility for PVSR service.

Retire the Commercial Service – Demand Metered (B) rate.

Retire the Large Power Service – Demand Metered (P) rate.

Revise the Optional Time-of-Use Rider (TOU) to retire the optional time-of-use riders for the Commercial Service – Demand Metered (B) and Large Power – Demand Metered (P) rates.
