Industrial Power Service
Rate Schedule IP
Available through one meter to any customer having a minimum load requirement of 10 megawatts or more and directly fed from the Utility’s 138kV Transmission system. Applicant must be located adjacent to the Utility’s transmission line that is adequate and suitable for supplying the service requested.
Character of Service
Alternating current having a frequency of sixty Hertz and furnished at a voltage which is standard with the Utility in the area served.
- Customer Charge ————————$600.00 per meter per month
- Demand Charge————————– $23.09 per KVA of billing demand
- Energy Charge————————— $0.026864 per KWH for all KWH
For single and three phase customers, the minimum monthly charge shall be the customer charge plus billed demand multiplied by the currently effective demand charge plus the energy charge.
Determination of Billing Demand and Measurement of Energy
Peak demand shall be measured by suitable recording instruments provided by Utility ad shall be the average number of kilovolt-amperes (KVA) in the fifteen minute period during which the KVA demand is greater than any other fifteen-minute interval in such month. For those customers who are not being metered by the use of a recording instrument, the peak demand, expressed inKVA, shall be the average number of kilowatts in the recorded fifteen-minute interval in such month during which the energy metered is greater than in any other such fifteen-minute interval in such month, divided by the lagging power factor (expressed as a decimal) calculated for the month. In no case shall the minimum KVA
demand in a month be less than the highest calculated KVA over the prior twelve-month period multiplied by 50%.
If service is metered at a voltage of approximately 13,800 volts or lower, the peak demand and energy measurements shall be increased by two percent (2%) to convert such measurements to the equivalent of metering at the Utility’s primary voltage.
Customer must own all equipment necessary to transform the power from 138kV to its suitable working voltage. This equipment must include but is not limited to structures, foundations, large power transformer, switches, breakers, station batteries, relay protection and control, CT’s, PT’s, security, etc..
Customer is responsible for proper routine maintenance on its customer owned equipment in accordance with industry best practices.

Rate Schedule PPOP
Available to any customer taking electric service under the provisions of Rate Schedule PP (Primary Power Service).
The rates and charges and all provisions included in the currently approved Rate Schedule PP shall apply except as provided for below.
Measurement of Peak Demand
Peak demand shall be measured by suitable recording instruments and, in any month, the calculated billing demand for the on-peak hours shall be the highest fifteen-minute kilovolt-ampere demand measured during such on-peak hours and the calculated billing demand for the off-peak hours shall be the highest fifteen-minute kilovolt-ampere demand measured during such off-peak hours. Such measured kilovolt-ampere demands shall be adjusted in accordance with the Metering Adjustment provision of Rate Schedule PP.
Monthly Billing Demand
The Monthly Billing Demand for any month shall be the greatest of (1) the peak demand established during the on-peak hours for the month or (2) fifty percent of the peak demand established during the off- peak hours for the month, but in any month such Monthly Billing Demand shall not be less than 100 kilovolt-amperes.

Economic Development Rider
ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT RIDER – IMPA
- Availability. This Rider is available to a Qualifying Customer (as defined herein) to encourage large power users to expand or create new operations within the Utility’s service territory.
- Qualifications. A “Qualifying Customer” is a new or existing non-residential customer in the Utility’s service territory that is establishing new operations or expanding existing operations such that the new or expanded operations will result in new or additional demand of at least one (1) MW (1,000 kW) at one delivery point (the “Qualifying Demand”) and the new or expanded operations has involved a capital investment of at least one million dollars ($1,000,000) within the Utility’s service territory.
For a Qualifying Customer that is expanding operations, Qualifying Demand is measured from the average monthly peak demand for the twelve (12) months immediately preceding the effective date of the Service Application. For a Qualifying Customer that is establishing new operations, Qualifying Demand is measured from zero.
A Qualifying Customer is not a customer: (1) with “new” demand that results from a change in ownership of an existing establishment without qualifying new load; (2) renewing service following interruptions such as equipment failure, temporary plant shutdown, strike, economic conditions or natural disaster; or (3) that has shifted its load from one operation or customer to another within the Utility’s service territory. The Utility may determine exclusively, without recourse by the customer, whether an event has occurred that would prevent a customer from being a Qualifying Customer.
- Rate Incentive. Beginning with the effective date indicated in the Service Application submitted by the Qualifying Customer, Utility will receive a credit on its wholesale bill for the qualifying new load. The incentive amount received by Utility from the Indiana Municipal Power Agency for such load will be passed in full to Qualifying Customers. For references purposes, the discount to the Qualifying Customer’s wholesale cost for qualifying new load will be calculated according to the following schedule:
Months 1-2 20%
Months 13-24 15%
Months 25-35 10%
Months 37-48 10%
Months 49-60 5%
The Qualifying Customer must meet the minimum Qualifying Demand during each month of the incentive period (i.e., months 1 through 60, as designated above). Failure to meet the minimum Qualifying Demand in a particular month will result in a 0% reduction in that month.
- Terms and Conditions. The Qualifying Customer must submit a Service Application to the Utility specifying: (1) a description of the amount and nature of the net load; (2) the basis on which the Qualifying Customer meets the requirements of this Rider; (3) the Qualifying Customer’s desired effective date; and (4) any other information required by the Utility.
This Rider will terminate on the same date that IMPA’s economic development rider terminates, except that any Qualifying Customer receiving the rate incentive at the time of the Rider’s termination may continue receiving the incentive for the remainder of the applicable incentive period (as long as it continues to meet the Rider’s requirements).
- Applicable Rate Schedules. This Rider is applicable to the following rate schedules: Industrial Power Service (Rate Schedule IP) and Primary Power Service (Rate Schedule PP).

The monthly adjusted billing demand under this Rider shall be the billing demand as determined according to Tariff PP or IP for the current billing period without this Rider less the product of the qualifying incremental billing demand and the applicable Adjustment Factor. No Adjustment Factors shall be applied to any portion of minimum billing demands as calculated under Tariff PP or IP.
Determination of Adjustment Factor
Standard New Development Customers – customers meeting all availability and terms and conditions above shall contract for service for a period of five (5) years with a scheduled Adjustment Factor as follows:
Year 1 25%
Year 2 20%
Year 3 15%
Year 4 10%
Year 5 05%
Urban Redevelopment Customers – customers meeting all availability and terms and conditions above, and that (1) are locating a new business in an existing building that has been unoccupied and/or has remained dormant for at least one or more years and has no current or prior relationship with the previous occupant, as determined by the Utility, and (2) taking delivery at one point that does not require significant distribution or transmission system investment, other than the connection of service, shall qualify the same as a Standard New Development Customer.
The appropriate adjustment factor shall be applicable over a period of 60 consecutive billing months beginning with the first such month following the end of the start-up period.
