Todd-Wadena Electric Cooperative Rate Summary

Rate Definitions

Basic Service Charge

The Basic Service Charge accounts for the majority of the Cooperative’s investment in poles, wires, transformers, and equipment to provide members with electric service. It supports fleet, facility, and member service functions, such as outage response, line maintenance, member service support, and administrative responsibilities.

Energy Charge

The Energy Charge is calculated based on the metered kilowatt-hours (kWh) consumed during the billing period.  The energy used to calculate this charge is also known as a member’s usage.

Demand Charge

The Demand Charge is determined by the highest amount of power, measured in kilowatts (kW), recorded by the meter during a designated period of time.  This measurement resets each billing period.  The charge is calculated by taking that measurement times the rate based on the time of year.

Power Cost Adjustment

The Power Cost Adjustment reflects the increases or decreases in the Cooperative’s cost to purchase and distribute wholesale power.
