POWER COST ADJUSTMENT

The Power Cost Adjustment calculated pursuant to this rate schedule is applicable to all energy delivered by Belmont Light. The prices for the above energy assume a base cost for power supply of $0.1144 per kWh. Revenue adjustments are made through the PCA factor to reflect the difference between the actual cost of power supply and the base cost. The PCA factor is applied as required, in order to equate actual power supply costs with revenues collected through the base rate while maintaining a reserve balance to cover short term power supply cost fluctuations.
