LD-2-B Time-of-Use Service Rate


The time-of-use (TOU) rate gives you the advantage of lower electric rates during the night and early morning hours, weekends, and the winter months. The highest rate time-period (peak period) is 8:00 AM through 8:59 PM Mondays through Fridays. The high-season rate is used for meters read monthly during the months of July through October. The low-season rate is used for meters read monthly during the months of November through June. This rate option may require a meter change. There will be no GWP charge for the installation of the new meter. However, if the electric panel for your service does not accommodate a socket meter, you will need to hire an electrician to upgrade the panel. Our Electric Meter Shop personnel will be able to evaluate this for you.

How do you know if you should consider TOU rates?


If you can arrange your electric usage patterns in such a way that a majority of your electric usage occurs during the lower rate, BASE period hours, or if your present usage pattern is structured in that manner, then this rate could be the appropriate choice for you.

Customer Owned Generation


Rates LD-2-C (Customer Owned-Generation-Standard) and LD-2-D (Customer-Owned Generation-Time-of-Use) are available to customers who own and operate photovoltaic or wind powered electric generation systems and who are otherwise eligible and remain eligible for rate LD-2-A or LD-2-B. These customers must sign an interconnection agreement with Glendale Water & Power (GWP) and pay for all required metering interconnection equipment which is in addition to that required for standard service. Participation in this rate is on a first-come-first served basis until the time that the total rated generating capacity used by eligible customer generators in all customer classes exceeds 2.5 percent of GWP's aggregate customer peak demand.

Excess Energy Credit


For all Customer-Owned-Generation rates, GWP will determine for each billing period the energy generated and the energy used. In any billing period where the energy used exceeds the energy generated on the Customer-Generator's premise, the Customer-Generator will be billed for the net energy used. In the event energy generated by the facility exceeds the energy used on the Customer-Generator's premise during any billing period, the amount of the net excess energy will be credited against the Customer-Generator's energy usage in the next billing period. At the end of each 12-month period, where the electricity generated by the eligible customer-generator during the 12-month period exceeds the electricity supplied by the electric service provider during that same period, the eligible customergenerator is a net electricity producer and the electric service provider shall retain any excess kilowatt hours generated during the prior 12 month period. The eligible customergenerator shall not be owed any compensation for those excess kilowatt hours unless the electric service provider enters into a purchase agreement with the eligible customergenerator for those excess kilowatt hours. GWP reserves the right to pay the CustomerGenerator for such excess kilowatt hours at the current fuel adjustment charge rate.
