Electric Power for Industry*    <Rules & Regulations>    <Deposit Policy>

The information below will provide you with details on electric service for industrial use.

GENERAL POWER RATE-SCHEDULE SGSB

Availability
This rate shall apply to the firm electric power requirements where a customer's currently effective contract demand is greater than 5,000 kW but not more than 15,000 kW.

Unless otherwise provided for in a written agreement between TVA and the distributor providing service under this rate schedule, for customers served under this rate schedule, the customer's "meter reading time" shall be 0000 hours CST or CDT, whichever is currently effective, on the first day of the calendar month following the month for which a bill under this rate schedule is being calculated.  Further, in accordance with TVA furnished or approved guidelines or specifications, TVA shall have unrestricted remote access to the metering data at all times, as well an unrestricted physical access to the metering facilities for the purpose of confirming remotely-accessed data during such periods as are specified by TVA.

Character of Service
Alternating current, single- or three- phase, 60 hertz.  Power shall be delivered at a transmission voltage of 161 kV or, if such transmission voltage is not available, at the highest voltage available in the vicinity, unless at the customer's request a lower standard voltage is agreed.

Base Charges
Customer Charge: $1,850 per delivery point per month

Administrative Charge:  $350 per delivery point per month
Demand Charge:  $19.92 per kW of billing demand per month, plus an additional $19.92 per kW per month for each kW, if any, of the amount by which the customer's billing demand exceeds its contract demand

Energy Charge:  4.939¢ per kWh

Adjustment
The base demand and energy charges shall be increased or decreased in accordance with the current Adjustment Addendum published by TVA.  In addition, such charges shall be increased or decreased to correspond to increases or decreases determined by TVA under Adjustment 2 or Adjustment 4 of the wholesale power rate schedule applicable under contractual arrangements between TVA and Distributor.

Facilities Rental Charge
There shall be no facilities rental charge under this rate schedule for delivery at bulk transmission voltage levels of 161 kV or higher.  For delivery at less than 161 kV, there shall be added to the customer's bill a facilities rental charge.  This charge shall be 36¢ per kW per month except for delivery at voltages below 46 kV, in which case the charge shall be 93¢ per kW per month for the first 10,000 kW and 73¢ per kW per month for the excess over 10,000 kW.  Such charge shall be applied to the higher of (1) the highest billing demand established during the latest 12 consecutive month period or (2) the customer's currently effective contract demand and shall be in addition to all other charges under this rate schedule, including minimum bill charges.

Reactive Demand Charges
If the reactive demand (in kVAR) is lagging during the 30-consecutive-minute period beginning or ending on a clock hour of the month in which the customer's highest metered demand occurs, there shall be added to the customer's bill a reactive charge of $1.46 per kVAR of the amount, if any, by which the reactive demand exceeds 33 percent of such metered demand.  If the reactive demand (in kVAR) is leading during the 30-minute-consecutive period beginning or ending on a clock hour of the month in which the customer's lowest metered demand (excluding any metered demands which are less than 25 percent of the highest metered demand) occurs, there shall be added to the customer's bill a reactive charge of $1.14 per kVAR of the amount of reactive demand.  Such charges shall be in addition to all other charges under this rate schedule, including minimum bill charges.

Determination of Seasonal Periods
Summer Period shall mean the June, July, August, and September billing months.  Winter Period shall mean the December, January, February, and March billing months.  Transition Period shall mean the April, May, October, and November billing months.

Determination of Demand
Distributor shall meter the demands in kW of all customers served under this rate schedule.  The metered demand for any month shall be the highest average during any 30-consecutive-minute period beginning or ending on a clock hour of the month of the load metered in kW, and such amount shall be used as the billing demand, except that the billing demand for any month shall in no case be less than the sum of (1) 30 percent of the first 5,000 kW and (2) 40 percent of any kW in excess of 5,000 kW of the higher of the currently effective contract demand or the highest billing demand established during the preceding 12 months.

Minimum Bill
The monthly bill under this rate schedule, excluding any facilities rental charges and any reactive charges, shall not be less than the sum of (1) the base customer charge, (2) the base demand charge, as adjusted (but excluding the additional portion thereof applicable to excess of billing demand over contract demand) applied to the customer's billing demand, and (3) the base energy charge, as adjusted, applied to the customer's energy takings.  Distributor may require minimum bills higher than those stated above.

Contract Requirement
Distributor shall require contracts for all service provided under this rate schedule.  The contract shall be for an initial term of at least 5 years and any renewals or extensions of the initial contract shall be for a term of at least 1 year; after 10 years of service, any such contracts for the renewal or extension of service may be provide for termination upon not less than 4 months' notice.  The customer shall contract for its maximum requirements, which shall not exceed the amount of power capable of being used by customer, and Distributor shall not be obligated to supply power in greater amount at any time than the customer's currently effective contract demand.  If the customer uses any power other than that supplied by Distributor under this rate schedule, the contract may include other special provisions.  The rate schedule in any power contract shall be subject to adjustment, modification, change, or replacement from time to time as provided under the power contract between Distributor and TVA.

After having received service for at least one year under this rate schedule, the customer, subject to appropriate amendments in its power contract with Distributor, may receive service under the General Power Rate--Schedule GSB.  In such case the term of the power contract shall remain the same and the on peak contract demand for service under the General Power Rate--Schedule GSB shall not be less than the contract demand in effect when service was taken under this rate schedule.

Payment
Bills under this rate schedule will be rendered monthly.  Any amount of bill unpaid after due date specified on bill may be subject to additional charges under Distributor's standard policy.

Single-Point Delivery
The charges under this rate schedule are based upon the supply of service through a single delivery and metering point, and at a single voltage.  If service is supplied to the same customer through more than one point of delivery or at different voltages, the supply of service at each delivery and metering point and at each different voltage shall be separately metered and billed.  Service is subject to Rules and Regulations of Distributor.
