Adjustments to Rate Schedules

Cost of Energy Adjustment: The Cooperative increases or decreases its retail rates each month by an amount sufficient to compensate for the difference between the Cooperative’s actual cost per kilowatt-hour (kWh) that it purchases and the cost per kWh on which its rate schedules are based. Adjustments for street and security lights (Schedule 4) are based on the following kWh usage per month.

Lamp Size kWh per Month Lamp Size kWh per Month
175 W 74 100 W HPS 42
400 W 170 150 W HPS 63
1000 W 425 400 W HPS 170

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 prohibits the sale and manufacturer of mercury vapor lighting. At this time, South Central is not able to offer mercury vapor lease lighting to our customers. For customers with existing mercury vapor lease lights that need bulbs repaired or replaced, we will gladly do so with sodium bulbs.
