205.02 Transformer Charges

Transformer costs (direct plus indirect) will be fully charged for all commercial and multi-family projects, as well as for residential lots over 2-acres, and for all other services where the transformer is installed to supply only that one service as determined solely by the Cooperative’s employees. Transformer costs for single-family lots where the transformer will supply services to adjacent lots in the future will be pro-rated based on the number of adjacent lots (up to four) that can be served from that transformer location as determined solely by the Cooperative’s employees. Transformer costs for small indeterminate commercial loads that the Cooperative  determines can be supplied by transformers serving other customers will be pro-rated based on the Cooperative’s estimate of load multiplied by the pro-rated cost per kVa, with a minimum estimated load of 5 kVa. The Cooperative will base pro-rated transformer costs on the prior calendar year’s actual costs and publish those in the current edition of the Cooperative’s “Electric Service Construction Standards.”

 

Shared residential transformers are typically sized for non-electric space heating assumed for future services to adjacent lots. For electric heat or other high-capacity new service to a single-family residential lot to be supplied from an existing shared transformer, the customer will be charged the full cost for upgrading the transformer plus their pro-rated amount for the existing transformer, less the current cost of the existing transformer. For additions or upgrade to an existing single-family residential service supplied by a shared transformer, the customer will be charged the full cost of the new transformer less the current cost of the existing transformer. The Cooperative shall determine the appropriate transformer rating for all cooperative owned transformers. 

 

For addition or upgrade to an existing commercial service, the customer will be charged the full cost of the new transformer less the current cost of the existing transformer.
