In areas where there is no local building code authority, upon a complaint by a dwelling
owner or tenant concerning non-compliance with the provisions of Rule 2.F.2.b, the
Company will perform an on-site inspection to determine conformance with the standards
concerning roofs, walls, foundation walls, floors, windows and doors. The result of this
inspection will be provided in writing to the owner (and tenant when applicable) of the
dwelling.
Whenever the Company finds, as a result of such inspection or notification by the local
building code authority, more than one outstanding complaint against any particular
contractor wherein a dwelling constructed by such contractor or builder was found to be in
non-compliance with the applicable standards, the Company shall refuse to provide electric
service to any construction site of that contractor or builder until all existing violations are
corrected. The Company shall undertake random inspections of the future construction work
of a past non-complying contractor or builder until such time as the Company is satisfied that
the applicable standards are being met.

KIND OF SERVICE
While the Company will at all times endeavor to furnish service under any of its standard classes of
distribution best suited to the customer's requirements, nothing in this Schedule shall be interpreted as
requiring the Company to render service other than that established as standard for the district in which
the customer's premises are located, or to tap its transmission and distribution system except as found
feasible by its engineers, or to make exceptions to its standard requirements in regard to installation of
electric motors or other electrical apparatus.

POWER QUALITY
(1)
Investigations
At the customers request, the Company will perform an investigation of power quality problems
(e.g. dim lights when a large appliance cycles on, etc.). If the investigation by the Company
determines that the power quality problems are not the result of the electric supply services
provided by the Company, any continued investigation to determine what customer-owned
equipment or facility is the cause of the degradation in power quality will be the responsibility of
the customer.
(2)

High Inrush Current Devices


(a) Voltage Disturbances
Except for customers served under Service Classification No. 7, customers taking service for
operation of arc-furnaces, welders, X-ray machines or any other devices having a highly
fluctuating or large instantaneous demand which causes undue voltage disturbance on the
circuit from which service is taken, thereby interfering with the service taken by such
customer or other customers, shall install or pay for corrective equipment and facilities to
avoid such interference with service or, failing to do so, shall pay in addition to the
applicable charge for service, $2.88 per kilovolt ampere per month for such additional
corrective equipment.
For customers taking service under Service Classification No. 7 for operation of arcfurnaces, welders, X-ray machines or any other devices having a highly fluctuating or large
instantaneous demand which causes undue voltage disturbance on the circuit from which
service is taken, thereby interfering with the service taken by such customer or other
customers, the provisions of Rule 2 of the Minimum Demand Charge section of Service
Classification No. 7 apply.
(b)

Motors
All motors of five horsepower or less connected to the Companys lines shall normally be
single phase, and motors over five horsepower shall normally be three phase, but customers
should contact Company in advance to ascertain the applicable conditions. Single phase
motors rated in excess of one-half horsepower must be connected for 240 (208) volt
operation. All motors connected to Company's lines shall be of a type that shall not require
starting current deemed unreasonably by Company, or shall have starting devices to restrict
the starting current within the limits considered reasonably by the Company, or both.

(b) Agreed to pay the Company the rates charged like customers; and
(c) Paid or agreed to pay the Company for the installation costs and expenses of any distribution lines, service
lines, right-of-way and appurtenant facilities in excess of any allowances under this Rule, prior to the
commencement of construction. The costs and expenses for each applicant shall be determined as follows;
(i) Service Lines - the costs and expenses for all facilities in excess of any allowances provided under Rule
3.A.(6).
(ii) Distribution Lines - the costs and expenses for all facilities in excess of any allowances provided under
Rule 3.A.(6) for any distribution line required exclusively to provide service to the applicants property
and a pro rata portion of the costs and expenses for all facilities in excess of any allowances provided
under Rule 3.A.(6) for any portion of the distribution line that provides service to more than one
applicants or customers property. The pro rata portion shall be calculated as follows: each applicant
shall be provided a distribution footage allowance of up to the distribution footage allowance under Rule
3.A.(6) as required for each customer property to be served. Each individual applicants distribution
allowances shall then be totaled to determine the aggregate footage allowance for the distribution line. If
an applicant is taking service within this aggregate footage allowance section of distribution provided
without cost, then the applicant shall not be required to pay for distribution costs. For any sections of
distribution beyond the aggregate distribution footage allowances, each applicant of the section beyond
the aggregate footage allowances shall pay for that portion of the costs and expenses for that distribution
section divided by the number of customers served by that distribution section. If, within 10 years from
the date that the extension went into service, any new customer is added to the extension any allowances
provided to such an applicant shall be first applied to the existing extension and, if the extension branches
or diverges from the existing extension, then and thereafter to the new or additional distribution
extension.
(d) A residing applicant may elect to either:
(i) Pay a lump sum payment for the costs and expenses of such facilities. If, within 10 years from the date
that the extension went into service, either (1) any new customer is added to the extension the payment
amounts shall be recalculated and the applicant that paid a lump sum payment shall receive a pro rata
refund, without interest, for the cost of that additional portion of distribution lines that the applicant
would have received without contribution or (2) the total revenue from all customers served by the
distribution extension exceeds 1.5 times the Companys costs and expenses in each of any two
consecutive calendar years, the applicant shall receive a prorated refund, without interest, of the lump
sum payment based upon the number of years which elapsed before the revenue test was met; or

Such lump sum payment shall be subject to refund for the remaining term of the original 10-year
agreement as customers are added to the excess line extension.

(v) Any applicant who may be served within the distance of the aggregate free allowance shall incur no
cost for the distribution line.
(vi) The remainder of any unpaid installment charges shall be collectible from any subsequent owner of
the premises served provided the original surcharge agreement contains the bold face notice: "THE
APPLICANT IS REQUIRED TO INFORM A PROSPECTIVE OWNER OF SUCH
OBLIGATION."
(e) Within 10 years from the commencement of service any new applicants taking service from excess cost
distribution lines are subject to either a lump sum payment or a monthly payment based on a 10 year
plan. Such adjusted payment shall be recalculated in accordance with Rules 3.A.(4)(c) and (f).

If a distribution line is required to be extended in order to provide the temporary service, the applicant shall
pay the Company's full costs and expenses for the installation and removal of the distribution line.
As a general rule a trailer is considered to be a non permanent installation. A trailer, building or structure
shall be considered permanent when it is not movable and set on and permanently attached to a masonry
foundation and connected to a permanent water supply and septic/sewer system. The permanent water
supply and the septic/sewer system must be approved by the appropriate municipality or agency having
jurisdiction in the area. A foundation under this Rule does not include a concrete or cement pad.
Temporary service shall be furnished under the applicable Service Classification without term limitation.

I. UNUSUAL CONDITIONS AND INCREASED LOADS
(1) Where the Company cannot be assured that the business to be served shall be permanent or where unusual
expenditures are necessary to supply service because of the location, size, or character of the applicants or
customers installation, facilities shall be constructed only when applicant or customer makes an adequate
contribution toward the cost of such facilities, or guarantees continued payment of bills for electric service, or
makes other satisfactory arrangements which would be sufficient to warrant the Company to undertake the
investment and expense involved.
(2) The customer should give the Company any reasonable advanced written notice, of any proposed new or
increased service required, setting forth in such notice the amount, character and the expected duration of
time the new or increased service shall be required. If such new or increased load exceeds 150 kilovoltamperes and if it necessitates new or added or enlarged facilities (other than metering equipment) for the sole
use of the customer, the Company may require the customer to make a reasonable contribution to the cost of
the new or added or enlarged facilities whenever the customer fails to give assurance, satisfactory to the
Company, that the taking of the new or increased service shall be of sufficient duration to render the supply
thereof reasonably compensatory to the Company. The customer or the Company may apply to the Public
Service Commission for a ruling as to the necessity for and reasonableness of the contribution required.

(3) If a customer is found to be the source of any disturbances, variations, or harmonics that affect the service of
another customer or area, the customer causing such disturbances, variation or harmonics shall install the
necessary equipment or change operating practices to alleviate such disturbances, variations, or harmonics. If
such customer refuses or fails to install such equipment or change operating practices, then the Company
shall install the necessary equipment to alleviate the problem. The customer causing such disturbances,
variations, or harmonics shall bear the Company's full costs and expenses incurred in remedying the
situation.

the point at which the service lateral shall connect to the Companys electric distribution lines or equipment. Each
service lateral within the lot line and running to each building shall be installed by the applicant in accordance
with the Companys specifications.
(4) Excessive Costs:
If the Company receives an application for underground service and the estimated per foot cost of installation for
the subdivision is greater than two times the charge per foot filed with the Public Service Commission, the
Company or applicant may petition the Public Service Commission to allow overhead service. The petition shall
set forth the relevant economic, engineering, or environmental factors. If the necessary facilities are proposed to
be in a VSR, the procedures set forth in 16 NYCRR Part 99.2 shall apply.
(5) Connection to Supply System:
The connection from the existing electric distribution system to the underground distribution lines installed within
the applicants subdivision shall be made by the Company.
Allowances, as stated in 3.A.(6)(a), shall be applied to the distribution line within the subdivision and service lines
in the subdivision, in that order, unless a governmental requirement mandates the supply line to be placed
underground, in which case such allowances shall be applied to the supply line first. Any underground line
extension requirements to provide service to the applicant, that exceed the designated allowances, shall be
constructed by the Company, but shall require a contribution by the applicant.
Where any part of the supply line, in excess of that portion included in the Companys allowance, is to be placed
overhead, an applicant must submit a written application to the Company at least 75 days prior to the projected
commencement of the construction of the supply line. The Company must report such projected construction to
the Commission no later than 45 days before such construction is commenced. The Commission reserves the right
to require the underground installation of particular lines, on the basis of the relevant economic, engineering, or
environmental factors.
In the event the Company either intends, at its own discretion, or is required pursuant to this tariff to place
underground connecting supply lines between an existing electric system and the underground distribution lines
installed within an applicants residential subdivision, the Company shall inform the telephone company and cable
television company serving the area in which the residential subdivision is located. If a new common access route
from the existing electric system to the residential subdivision shall be used, the connecting supply lines of the
utility and the telephone company and cable television company shall be places underground.
If a governmental authority having jurisdiction to require undergrounding, has required that underground facilities
be installed, the Company shall furnish and construct, when necessary, an amount of underground supply circuit
from the boundary line of the subdivision to the Companys existing distribution system. The supply line shall
be charged by actual costs as specified in the URD Statement at the end of this Schedule (P.S.C. No. 19

Contributions (Deposit Info)


In order to guarantee performance, the Company may require from the applicant before construction is commenced a
deposit in a reasonable amount, but in no event more than the estimated total cost of construction. The deposit is in
addition to the applicants payment (contribution) of its share of costs for installation and shall be returned, with
interest, to the applicant, on a pro rata basis based on the number of dwelling units connected to and receiving service
from the system, when each dwelling unit is connected to the system.
Any portion of the deposit remaining unrefunded five years from the date the Company is first ready to render service
from the underground system shall be retained by the Company.
A bond may be posted in lieu of any deposit providing the terms can be mutually agreed upon by the Company and the
applicant.
In addition, the Company may require provision for collection in advnace of a reasonable sum for administrative costs.
The deposit refund interest rate shall be the rate specified by the Commission for interest on deposits.
When the developer is not primarily engaged in the construction of dwelling units within the subdivision and there is
no governmental authority requiring undergrounding and overhead facilities are proposed to be installed under Rule
3.J.(10)(a); the Company may require a deposit of the full costs and expenses for the overhead distribution system prior
to the start of construction. This deposit shall be returned, with interest, to the applicant, on a pro rata basis based on
the number of dwelling units connected t and receiving service from the system, when each dwelling unit is connected
to the system.
The foregoing per-foot contribution may be modified by the Company by a filing with the Public Service Commission
on or before May 1 of each year. The average cost per foot for these services shall be based upon the simple averaging
of the most recent five years annual average costs. If, after the underground system construction is completed, the
development of the subdivision is modified by the addition of dwelling units which then take service from the
distribution line within the boundaries of the subdivision, the Company shall recalculate the contribution and make an
appropriate refund, without interest, but in no case shall the refund exceed the original contribution. Any portion of the
charge remaining unrefunded five years from the date the Company is first ready to render service shall be retained by
the Company. Any footage allowances provided under Rule 3.A. shall be first applied to the distribution system,
including supply lines where supply lines are required to be underground, then to any service lines.

(10) Exceptions to the General Rule
The installation of overhead distribution facilities may be allowed under the following circumstances:
(a) Large Lots
When the average trench footage per dwelling unit planned within a subdivision exceeds 200 feet, and
the developer does not request nor has a governmental authority with jurisdiction to do so required that
underground facilities be installed, overhead lines may be installed.
(b) Excessive Cost
Where the trench cost per foot would be greater than twice the filed cost per foot shown in the Statement
of Underground Residential Distribution Contribution (URD Statement), the Company or applicant may
petition the Public Service Commission to allow overhead lines or grant other appropriate relief, if a
governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has not required that underground facilities be
installed.
(c) Slow Development of a Subdivision
The Company may install overhead distribution lines in a residential subdivision or section thereof
otherwise required to have underground distribution lines when;
(i)

The developer of the residential subdivision is not primarily engaged in the construction of dwelling
units within the subdivision;
(ii) No governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has required underground service; and
(iii) Either:
1) Five years have elapsed from the sale of the first lot within the residential subdivision to the
first application for installation and the Company has no indication that there shall be any other
new applicants in the residential subdivision within six months, or
2) Five years have elapsed from the time of final approval of the residential subdivision or any
section thereof except where 10% or more of the lots in the residential subdivision or any
section thereof have been sold within the last two years.
In case where overhead installation would be permissible in accordance with conditions (iii), except
that less than five years have elapsed and the Company has reason to believe that the residential
subdivision shall not be developed sufficiently soon to permit the orderly utilization of underground
lines installed to serve the initial applicant(s), the Company may petition the Commission o allow
overhead installation. Such petition shall set forth the relevant economic, engineering, or
environmental factors.
The petition shall be granted or denied based on those factors.

(d) Environmental Effects
When the Company or applicant believes the installation of overhead lines would be more environmentally
desirable than underground facilities, the Company or applicant may petition the Public Service Commission to
allow overhead lines, if a governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has not required that underground
facilities be installed.
(i)

Service to a residential subdivision may be supplied overhead if no governmental authority having


jurisdiction to do so has required undergrounding and the Company can provide service to the entire
residential subdivision under the following circumstances:
By extending its facilities no more than 600 feet in a cul-de-sac where a position of the street within the
residential subdivision is served by overhead facilities within or at the entrance of the cul-de-sac; or
By connecting an area between existing overhead facilities for a distance of 1,200 feet, or less.
(ii) If no governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has required undergrounding, service to a
residential subdivision may be supplied overhead by installing service laterals to new applicants from
existing overhead lines.
Where the Company constructs overhead lines because of reasons in paragraph (i) it shall report such
overhead construction to the Commission quarterly along with a description of the project. Notwithstanding
the foregoing provisions, if the necessary facilities are proposed to be in a VSR, refer to the procedures set
forth in 16 NYCRR Part 99.2 shall apply.
(e) Cul-de-sac
Overhead facilities may be installed when no more than 600 feet of overhead extension is required to serve a culde-sac where a portion of the street within the subdivision is served by overhead facilities within or at the entrance
to the cul-de-sac, if a governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has not required that underground
facilities be installed.
(f) Connection of Existing Overhead Lines
Overhead facilities may be installed when existing overhead distribution lines can be connected by no more than
1,200 feet of extension, if a governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has not required that underground
facilities be installed.
(g) One-pole Extension
Where a one-pole extension, including but not limited to road crossing pole extensions, would enable an existing
overhead distribution line to be connected to a proposed distribution line in a residential subdivision, such
extension may be installed overhead, rather than underground; provided, however, that if the necessary facilities
are proposed to be in a VSR refer to the procedures set forth in 16 NYCRR Part 99.
(h) Service Laterals
Overhead service laterals may be installed in new subdivisions from existing overhead distribution lines, if a
governmental authority having jurisdiction to do so has not required that underground facilities be installed.
In unusual circumstances when the application of these rules appears impracticable or unjust to either party or
discriminatory to other customers, the applicant or the Company may refer the matter to the Public Service
Commission for a special ruling or for approval of special conditions mutually agreed upon prior to commencing
construction.
In cases where overhead installation would be permissible in accordance with conditions (iii), except that less than
five years have elapsed and the Company has reason to believe that the residential subdivision shall not be
developed sufficiently soon to permit the orderly utilization of underground lines installed to serve the initial
applicant(s), the Company may petition the Commission to allow overhead installation. Such petition shall set
forth the relevant economic, engineering, or environmental factors. The petition shall be granted or denied based
on those factors.

K. INSTALLATION OF FACILITIES IN VISUALLY SIGNIFICANT RESOURCE (VSR) AREAS


All new lines in Visually Significant Resource (VSR) Areas will be evaluated in accordance with 16 NYCRR
Part 99 to determine whether underground or overhead construction is appropriate, provided the Company has not
expended up to its maximum obligation as set forth in 16 NYCRR Part 99.2.
This section applies to new construction on public and private land in VSRs, where a qualified agency:
(i) has no statutory authority to require the underground construction of a particular distribution or
service line; and
(ii) has supplied to the Company and to the Commission, and the Commission has accepted and
approved a map(s) of the particular VSR, at a scale appropriate to such VSR, showing its boundaries
in sufficient detail to permit the Company to comply with the requirements of this Rule, and should
be accompanied by a textual description where clarification of the VSR boundaries is desirable.
If it is determined after the report and assessment required by 16 NYCRR 99.2(b) and (j) that an extension will be
installed underground within a VSR, the Company will be responsible for that portion of the costs and expenses
of both the distribution line extension and service line that exceeds the amount that the applicant would have been
required to pay for the installation of comparable overhead facilities.
Where any telephone company has been permitted to install a distribution or feeder facility necessary to furnish
permanent telephone service overhead in a particular VSR, the Company may install a distribution or service line
necessary to furnish permanent electric service overhead using the poles which were used for the telephone
facility.
VSR(s) located in the Companys Franchise Area are set forth on the statement titled Statement of Visually
Significant Resource Areas filed with the Public Service Commission. Such Statement shall be filed with the
Public Service Commission whenever changes are warranted pursuant to 16 NYCRR Part 99.

A. METERING
Metering will be provided and owned by the Company, except in cases where the Customer has elected to
own its meter in accordance with Rule 3.E.2 and 4.A.2, or has contracted for meter services to be provided
by a competitive meter service provider (MSP) in accordance with Rule 3.E.4 and 4.A.3.
1) Company Owned Meters
(a) Ownership, Control, and Maintenance of Meters
For Company owned meters, installation, maintenance, and compliance with Commission
regulations (16 NYCRR Parts 92 and 125) will remain the responsibility of the Company.
(b) Measurement of Consumption
(i) Metered
The extent of the customer's use of the Companys service shall be determined by the readings
of the meters installed by the Company.
(ii) Unmetered
Where the customer's only utilization equipment consists of warning lights, directional signs,
telephone booth lights or the like, having a total rated capacity of less than two kilowatts and
such equipment has a definitely determinable demand, and is operated on a fixed schedule, the
Company may supply unmetered service at the applicable Service Classification rates and
charges, upon the basis of the usage determined by the Company and endorsed upon the
agreement for service. Unmetered service will not be supplied at any location where the
customer is supplied with metered service. The Company reserves the right at any time to
measure by meter, either permanently or for test purposes, service supplied on an unmetered
basis.
(iii) Metering Adjustment
Metering will normally be at the delivery voltage. The Company may, at its option, meter
service at a voltage either higher or lower than the voltage of delivery, in which case the
appropriate following adjustment shall be made:
(a) When secondary service is metered on the primary side of the Companys transformers,
calculated transformer losses will be subtracted from measured demand and energy prior
to billing.
(b) When primary service is metered on the secondary side of the Customer's transformers,
calculated transformer losses will be added to measured demand and energy prior to
billing.
Calculated transformer losses will be based on data published by the transformer manufacturer,
when available, or on data published by the General Electric Company for transformers of
similar voltage, type and size. No-load losses will be based on data assuming 730 hours per
month. Load losses will be determined by multiplying metered demand and energy,
respectively, by individually calculated factors developed in accordance with generally
accepted engineering principles assuming 730 hours per month and taking cognizance of the
full load capacity of the transformer, the Customer's average peak load, the load factor and
average power factor of the load. Such factors will be reviewed annually or as load changes
require.

Where the Company has billed a customers account based on the readings of a remote
meter registration device for six consecutive months, the Company shall, at the time of
every subsequent meter reading attempt, until successful, try to gain access to and read the
meter.
Where the Company has billed a customers account based on customer meter readings for
six consecutive months, and did not obtain an actual meter reading at the time of the next
regularly scheduled or follow-up reading attempt thereafter, the Company shall within
seven calendar days after the last attempt, either make another meter reading attempt or an
appointment with the customer to read the meter.
The Company may render an estimated bill for a regular cycle billing period when:
The Company has failed to obtain access to the meter(s);
circumstances beyond the Company's control made obtaining an actual reading
of the meter(s) extremely difficult despite having access to the meter area;
provided, however, that estimated bills for this reason may be rendered no more
than twice consecutively without advising the customer in writing of the specific
circumstances and the customers obligation to have the circumstances
corrected, or the Company was unable to obtain access to the meter(s).
The Company shall begin providing no access notices to the access controller as described
in this subdivision commencing with:
(a)

The second consecutive estimated billing for accounts billed for demand.

(b)

The fourth consecutive estimated billing for accounts not billed for demand.

(c)

The tenth consecutive estimated billing for accounts billed on either a remote
registration device or customer readings.

The no access notices and charges described in this subdivision will be directed only to the
access controller. In any case where the access controller is not the customer of the
subject account, a copy of all notices shall also be sent to the customer.
The series of no access notices shall be as follows:
The first notice shall advise access controller that unless access to the customer's meter is
provided on the next scheduled meter reading date or a special appointment to read the
meter is made and kept,, a no access charge will be added to the access controllers next
bill and to every subsequent bill until access to the customers meter is provided. No
charge will be imposed if an appointment is arranged and kept.

For a Customer taking meter service and meter data services from an MSP and/or MDSP, the
extent of the Customer's use of the Company's service shall be determined by the readings of the
meters installed by the MSP and provided to the Company by the MDSP. A protocol for the
MDSP to transmit such data to the Company will be developed and agreed upon with the
MDSP. If the data required by the protocol is not received by the Company in accordance with
all terms of the protocol, the Company will estimate the Customer's usage from available data
and the Customer will be billed accordingly. The Customer will be charged a meter data service
charge as stated in the applicable service classification for any month in which data is not
received from the MDSP in accordance with the protocol.

RENDITION AND PAYMENT OF BILLS


(1)Budget Billing
Residential
(a) Except as provided in (c) below, the Company shall annually offer a budget payment plan to
eligible customers. A customer may request to be billed in accordance with the following budget
payment plan:

(b)

(i)

The customer's annual billing shall be estimated at the applicable unit prices for estimated
usage in the next 12 months. Each month for 12 months, commencing with the next
monthly billing cycle, the customer shall be billed budget amount equal to 1/12 of the
such estimated annual bills.

(ii)

During the plan year the customer's actual use shall be billed regularly as provided under the
applicable service classification. If at the end of the 12 months the amount of budget billing
is less than that corresponding to the amount resulting from the regular billing under the
applicable service classification of the customer's actual usage, then the customer shall pay
the deficiency as well as the stipulated monthly budget payment for the 12th month billing
cycle. If the amount of the budget billing is greater than such regular billing, the Company
shall apply the excess as credit against future bills or shall refund the excess paid.

(iii)

In order to minimize the amount of over or under payment to be adjusted on the 12th
month bill, the Company shall, at the end of the third, sixth and ninth month, review
the customers plan balance and, based upon known and/or projected prices,
adjustments, and usage, re-estimate the remaining bills.

(iv)

The Company shall also review the customer's plan balance if basic price, adjustment, or usage
changes occur at other times during the plan year. Any of these reviews can result in mandatory
revisions to the stipulated monthly payment.

A new applicant or existing customer may initially apply for budget billing at any time, in which
event the Company shall estimate the customer's bills for the remaining months in the plan and
bill the estimated amount in equal payments through the plan settlement bill. Any difference
between the amount billed and the amount that would have been billed for actual usage shall be
charged or credited to the budget settlement bill.
When a customer is also rendered gas service by the Company, the budget payment plan shall
apply to the total of both gas and electricity billings.
The actual bill for customers shall be computed in accordance with the applicable service classification.
The late payment charge for residential customers shall be calculated at the rate of 1 % per month on
all amounts not paid by the past due date indicated on the bill.
In the event of cancellation of the budget billing plan or the discontinuance of service, any
deficiency shall then become due, or if there is an excess, it shall be applied to future bills or
refunded by the Company.

payment plan before the end of the plan year in the past 24 months; or

(vi)

customers whose pattern of consumption is not sufficiently predictable to be estimated


on an annual basis with any reasonable degree of certainty.

The Company may only remove a customer from its budget billing plan if the customer becomes
ineligible under Section 4.C.(2)(a) of this Schedule, provided that the Company has given the
customer an opportunity to become current in payment. If delinquency is the cause of the customer's
ineligibility, such opportunity need only be given once in any twelve-month period.

(i)

(ii)

establish an eligible customer's monthly or bi-monthly budget billing amount which


will take into consideration the best available relevant factors including the Company's
standard estimation factors, projected prices, fuel adjustment charges and taxes;
compare the actual cost of service rendered, as determined by actual meter readings
and any price increases or decreases, to the budget billing amount, and for adjusting
upwards or downwards the budget billing amount to minimize the adjustment required
on the final settlement bill, which comparison will be done not less than two nor more
than four times annually, and at the end of the plan year;

Bills shall be deemed rendered, and other notices duly given when delivered to the Customer personally
or when mailed to the Customer at the premises supplied, or at the last known address of the Customer,
or when left at either of such places, or when posted electronically. Failure to receive such bill, either
by mail, personally, or electronically shall not entitle the Customer to any delay in the settlement of
each months account nor to any extension of the date after which a late payment charge becomes
applicable.
Payment by mail properly stamped, addressed, and mailed on or before the past due date included on
the bill as evidenced by a United States postmark, shall be deemed to be payment prior to the
application of late payment charges. Payment made via Electric Funds Transfer (EFT) shall be
deemed paid on the date that funds are transferred from the Customers bank account. A request by the
Customer for adjustment of bills or any other complaint does not extend the date of the undisputed
portion of bills which have been duly rendered.
Customers receiving standard bills produced and issued by the Companys automated billing system,
excluding specialized bills, may elect to receive and pay bills through a participating bank or vendor
under the Companys On-Line Billing (OLB) option. Under OLB, a bill shall be deemed rendered

TERM OF SERVICE
(1) Length of Term
The term shall begin on the date service is made available, and shall continue until service is
discontinued as provided in applicable Service Classifications or the Line Extension Surcharge
Agreement.
(2)

Cessation of Service
Cessation of service means that the taking of all service by the customer at a given locality shall entirely
cease for not less than 30 days. The term as defined in each service classification is applicable to each
customer, but a change of location does not constitute a discontinuance of service for the purpose of
determining the length of time during which customer has taken service.

Revenue Decoupling Mechanism Adjustment (RDM) (Contd)

3. Calculation:
a. The RDM shall reconcile per service class actual billed delivery service revenue to allowed delivery service revenue.
b. For the residential and general service classifications or sub classification subject to the RDM as set forth in Rule K.1.a.
(RDM), each month, the Company shall compare the Actual Billed Delivery Service Revenue and the Delivery Service
Revenue Target. If the monthly Actual Billed Delivery Service Revenue exceeds the Delivery Service Revenue Target,
the delivery service revenue excess shall be accrued for refund to customers at the end of the Rate Year. Likewise, if
the monthly Actual Billed Delivery Service Revenue is less than the Delivery Service Revenue Target, the delivery
revenue shortfall shall be accrued for recovery from customers at the end of the Rate Year.
c. At the end of the Rate Year, total delivery service revenues shall be compared to cumulative monthly target revenues
for the residential service classifications and each general service classification or sub classification. Any variance
from cumulative target revenues shall be either refunded or surcharged to customers over the 12-monthly periods of the
immediately succeeding Rate Year. Any surcharge or credit amount shall reflect interest at the then effective other
customer deposit rate and shall be either recovered or returned to residential service classifications and each general
service classification (as described in K.1.a. (RDM)). The surcharge or credit for each applicable service classification
or sub classification shall be determined by dividing the amount to be refunded or surcharged to customers in that
service classification or sub classification by estimated kWh or kW deliveries to customers in that service classification
or sub classification over a 12-month period. A per kW surcharge or credit shall be applied for those classes that do not
have a kWh delivery charge. A per kWh surcharge or credit shall apply for all other service classifications.
d. Following each RDM Adjustment period, any difference between the amounts required to be charged or credited to
customers in each service classification or sub classification and amounts actually charged or credited shall be charged
or credited to customers in that service classification or sub classification, with interest, over the subsequent RDM
Adjustment period, or as determined by the Public Service Commission, if no RDM is in effect. Credits applied to
Customer accounts pursuant to Rule P shall be excluded at the subsequent annual reconciliation.
e. The first two months of the Rate Year shall be adjusted upward to reverse the effect of proration of changes in effective
delivery rates.
f. If a customer qualifies for and takes service under Service Classification Nos. 10 or 11, or receives an allocation of
NYPA Power, or if a customer taking service under Service Classification Nos. 10 or 11 switches to another service
classification subject to the RDM, or has an allocation of NYPA power that expires, such customer migration shall be
treated symmetrically using the following methodology:
i. If a customer moves from a flexible rate contract to an RDM class, the RDM target shall increase by the level of
revenue forecast for that customer in the rate year under the flexible rate contract pro-rated by the number of
months in the new service class, making the Company whole for delivery revenues below the level forecast in the
rate year. Any revenue in excess of the forecast shall be credited to the RDM class.
ii. If a customer moves from a RDM class to a flexible rate contract, the RDM target shall be decreased by that
customer's sales in the flexible rate contract priced out at full tariff rates, making the RDM class whole for delivery
revenues from the migrating customer.
iii. In situation (a) and (b) above, the Companies shall adjust the RDM targets for the remaining months of the current
rate year, and in the subsequent rate years.
g. If at any time during Rate Year, the actual total accumulated billed delivery service revenues vary plus or minus 1.50%
or more from the total accumulated Delivery Service Revenue Targets, the Company may file an interim RDM
Adjustment for each service classification and sub classification. For the Rate Years listed below, the amounts by Rate
Year (positive or negative) will trigger an interim RDM Adjustment for each service classification and sub
classification:
i. Rate Year 1: $5.43 million;
ii. Rate Year 2: $5.88 million;
iii. Rate Year 3: $6.28 million
Such interim RDM Adjustment shall be limited to no more than one per Rate Year and shall occur over four months or
until the end of the Rate Year, whichever is longer.

4.

A Revenue Decoupling Mechanism (RDM) Statement setting forth the rate adjustment shall be filed with the Public
Service Commission on not less than 30-days notice to be effective August 1. Should the Company file an interim RDM
Adjustment as described above, such filing shall occur on not less than 10-days notice. Such statement can be found at
the end of this Schedule (P.S.C. No. 19 Electricity).

Recharge New York (RNY) Power Program (Contd)
A customer receiving an RNY allocation that has received or receives an economic delivery rate pursuant to the Empire Zone Rate or
Economic Development Zone Incentive (EZR), the Excelsior Jobs Program (EJ), or the Incremental Load Rate (ILR) Incentive shall
choose between the economic development incentive and RNY delivery discount for which they qualify. Only one delivery discount shall
be applied to a specific portion of the customers load. The customer shall make a one-time election and provide its election to the
Company in writing. If the customer fails to provide the Company with its written one-time election, the customer shall default to the
EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rates. Choosing the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate shall not alter the supply load factor sharing described below.
1. If a customer that is participating in the EZR, EJ, or ILR and has a baseload elects to receive the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate, the
customer shall receive the RNY delivery discount on the baseload up to their designated RNY allocation.
2. If a customer that is participating in the EZR, EJ, or ILR and does not have a baseload elects to receive the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery
rate, the customer shall receive the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate on their entire load and shall not receive the RNY delivery discount.
3. A customer that is participating in the EZR, EJ, or ILR and elects to receive the RNY Program delivery discounts shall receive the
RNY Program delivery discounts on their entire RNY allocation and shall receive the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate on any qualified
load above the RNY allocation.
A customer that elects to receive the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate shall automatically revert to receiving the RNY Program delivery
discount if the EZR, EJ, or ILR delivery rate is, or becomes, the same as standard service classification rates. If the EZR, EJ or ILR
delivery rate becomes lower than the standard service classification rates, the customers election of the EZR, EJ or ILR delivery rate shall
be reinstated.
If a customer participating in the EJ Program does not receive its annual certification from ESD in any year they are participating in the EJ
Program, the customer shall automatically revert to receiving the RNY Program delivery discount until such customer receives its
certification from ESD for the EJ Program.

C.

If a customer receiving service under this Special Provision has a demonstrated financial need, such customer shall be eligible to combine
the RNY delivery discount with any other economic development incentive or flexible tariff rate, term or condition under Service
Classification Nos. 10 and 11 for the same portion of the customers load. Simply qualifying for a RNY Program allocation and another
economic development program is not sufficient showing of financial need for the purpose of combining delivery rate discounts on the
same portion of a customers load. A customer that qualified for a RNY Program allocation and received another economic development
incentive prior to March 18, 2013, shall be grandfathered under this Rule.
NYPA shall give the Company not less than 30 days written notice prior to the requested effective date of any of the following events: (a)
initial communication of a RNY allocation; (b) a change in the amount of a RNY allocation previously reported to the Company; and (c) a
termination of a RNY allocation. The change to the RNY Power Allocation billing shall become effective with the next full billing period that
is practicable after the notification of the change. A change to a delivery point shall be handled as a termination of a RNY allocation to the
current delivery point and an enrollment of a RNY Allocation to the new delivery point.
Service under this provision is available to customers approved by EDPAB, subject to the partial or complete withdrawal of such allocation by
NYPA or the EDPAB, in the event the customer fails to maintain mutually agreed upon terms of their contracts. Service under this provision
shall be available to qualified customers for the duration that such an allocation, specifically designated for the purpose of the RNY Power
Program, is made available through NYPA.
Billing:
The customers RNY Contract Demand shall be the level of demand specified in the customers RNY allocation approved by NYPA. The
RNY allocation is comprised of 50% firm hydroelectric power (i.e. capacity and energy) from the Niagara and Saint Lawrence hydroelectric
projects, and 50% market power (i.e. capacity and energy). The market power can be supplied by NYPA or the customers supplier for
electricity in accordance with the Supply Service Options set forth in General Information Section 12.
The customers RNY allocation shall be subject to the Delivery Charges listed within the customers Service Classification, the Transition
Charge (Non-Bypassable Charge [NBC]) and the Temporary State Assessment Surcharge (TSAS).
The customers RNY allocation shall be exempt from paying the System Benefit Charge. The customers RNY allocation shall be exempt from
the Revenue Decoupling Mechanism (RDM) Adjustment (as described in General Information Section 4.K.).
The non-NYPA supplied load shall be billed at the ESCO Supply Service rate or the RG&E Supply Service rate of the customers Service
Classification.
Demand Exceeding the RNY Contract Demand:
To the extent that a customers maximum billing demand (maximum metered demand for S.C. No. 14), for the current month exceeds its RNY
Contract Demand, the customers billing determinants shall be allocated between NYPA and the Company or the ESCO as described below in
the section denominated Load Factor Sharing.

Load Factor Sharing:


For customers receiving a portion, but not all, of their electric requirements pursuant to a RNY allocation, the
Company shall apply a billing algorithm, the Billing Determinant Ratio (BDR), to identify, for the purposes of
billing delivery charges, the load eligible for the RNY program pursuant to Chapter 60 (Part CC) of the Laws of
2011 and the load considered non-RNY load.
Determination of Billing Demand and Energy:
For the purposes of this procedure, Billing Demand and Energy shall be determined in accordance with the
customers Service Classification, for SC No. 14 Standby customers maximum metered demand will be used. The
RNY Contract Demand will not be prorated for billing periods less than 25 days or longer than 35 days.
Demand:
A.
Calculate the BDR which is used to allocate the present months Billing Demand (maximum metered
demand for SC No. 14) and Energy between RNY and Non-RNY. The BDRs numerator is the RNY
Contract Demand and the BDRs denominator is the greater of:
1. the maximum Billing Demand for the current month, the maximum metered demand for SC No. 14,
2. the value (size in kW) of the RNY Contract Demand.
The calculated value will then be greater than zero and less than or equal to 1.0.
B.

Calculate the RNY Billing Demand. The RNY Billing Demand is the mathematical product of the BDR and
the current month's Billing Demand, the maximum metered demand for SC No. 14.

C.

Calculate the non-RNY Billing Demand. The non-RNY Billing Demand is the difference between the
Billing Demand (maximum metered demand for SC No. 14) for the billing period and the RNY Billing
Demand from step B, above.

Energy:
A.
Calculate RNY Energy. RNY Energy is the mathematical product of the BDR and total energy consumption,
consumption by peak and off-peak, or consumption by hour as applicable.
B.
Calculate non-RNY Energy. Non-RNY Energy is the difference between total energy consumption,
consumption by peak and off-peak, or consumption by hour as applicable and RNY Energy from step A,
above.
Capacity:
When the Company develops installed capacity (ICAP) requirements for RNY Power Program participants, the
Company shall derive them on an individual basis at the time of the monthly NYCA peak date and time. When
hourly data is not available, the appropriate service class profile will be used to determine the customers capacity
responsibility. A new capacity responsibility amount will be established for each customer each April, to be
effective on or after May 1. The ICAP requirement for the RNY Power portion of the total ICAP requirement for
each program participant shall be split based on the demand at the NYCA peak.

A customer who receives a NYSERDA loan, or a subsequent customer that becomes responsible for the electric and/or natural gas bill at that
location except as provided below, shall repay the loan installments on their utility bills. Under the NYSERDA Loan Installment Program,
NYSERDA shall notify the Company of the monthly loan installment amounts and the number of months of the NYSERDA loan term that
are to be charged on the customers bills.

2. Billing and Collections


The responsibility of the Company is limited to providing billing and collection services for NYSERDA. Such billing and collection
services shall be available regardless of whether the electricity or natural gas delivered by the Company is the customers primary energy
source.
Only one NYSERDA Loan Installment obligation can exist on a customers utility account. Should the customer enter into an additional
NYSERDA Loan Installment agreement, NYSERDA shall replace the current NYSERDA Loan Installment on the account with a new
consolidated NYSERDA Loan Installment and notify the Company of the new NYSERDA Loan Installment amount and corresponding
NYSERDA Loan term in months.
Beginning no later than the second bill after the Company receives a valid customer account number from NYSERDA, each bill issued to the
customer shall include the monthly loan installment amount until the loan is satisfied or the account is closed. A customer receiving bills on
a bi-monthly basis shall be billed for two loan installments on each bill.
The customer shall be required to pay NYSERDA loan installment amounts when bills are due. Unpaid loan installment amounts shall be
subject to the provisions of this Rate Schedule regarding:
(a) deferred payment agreements (pursuant to General Information Rule 5.A.(13)); and
(b) termination/disconnection and reconnection of service (pursuant to General Information Rule 5.A and General Information Rule
5.A.(12).
If in order to avoid termination of service or to restore service that was terminated to an entire multiple dwelling, pursuant to 16 NYCRR
11.7, or to a two-family dwelling, pursuant to 16 NYCRR 11.8, such occupants shall not be billed for any arrears of on-bill recovery charges
or any prospective on-bill recovery charges, which shall remain the responsibility of the incurring customer.
NYSERDA Loan installment amounts shall not be subject to the Increase in Rates and Charges Applicable Where
Service is Supplied pursuant to General Information Rule 4 J.
A customer remitting less than the total amount due on a utility bill that includes a loan installment amount shall have such partial payment
first applied as payment for billed electric and/or natural gas charges. If there are monies remaining after application to the Companys
electric and/or natural gas charges, any remaining amount shall be applied to outstanding NYSERDA loan installment amounts.
A customer remitting more than the total amount due on a utility bill that includes a NYSERDA loan installment amount shall have the
overpayment applied first to subsequently billed electric and/or natural gas charges and then to NYSERDA Loan Installment amounts as
they are billed. The utility shall not apply customer overpayments as a prepayment of NYSERDA loan installment amounts or as full
repayment of the NYSERDA loan. Customers wishing to make loan prepayments or satisfy the balance of the loan amount outstanding must
arrange directly with NYSERDA for such payments. The Company shall not provide interest on overpayments of NYSERDA loan
installment amounts.

Q.

Consumer Policies Related to Prolonged Outages


The following policies regarding Prolonged Outages were established by Order of the Commission
November 18, 2013, in Case 13-M-0061. A Prolonged Outage is defined hereunder as an outage
resulting from an emergency in which electricity Customers are out of service for a continuous period
exceeding three days and in which the 16 NYCRR Part 105 regulations governing utility outage
preparation and system restoration performance reviews apply.
1.

Credits to be applied to Customer Accounts under this Schedule in Service Classification Nos. 1, 2,
3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 14.
a. When there is a Prolonged Outage, the Company shall automatically apply a credit to the
account of any Customer that the Company knows or reasonably believes was out of service for
a period exceeding three days, and upon request, to the account of any Customer that contacts
the Company and credibly claims to have experienced an outage of such duration.
b. The credit shall be equal to the Customer Charge for the Customers Service Classification
multiplied by the ratio of the number of days of the service outage (based on the average
duration of the service outage in the geographic area(s), as appropriate) to 30 days. For Service
Classification Nos. 10 and 11, the credit shall be based on the customers otherwise applicable
service classification.
c. The above credit shall be applied to the Customers account no later than 75 days after service is
restored.
d. Any such credit shall be excluded from the Companies Delivery Service Revenue Target as
provided for in Rule K.

2.

Collection-related Activities
a. All collection-related activities including terminations of service for non-payment and
assessment of late payment charges, with the exception of issuance of service termination
notices and assessment of security deposits, shall be suspended for Customers whom the
Company knows or reasonably believes experienced a Prolonged Outage. The suspension
shall last for a minimum of seven calendar days from the beginning of a Prolonged Outage.
b. If there is a Prolonged Outage in which additional protections are required, as determined by
Order of the Commission, the suspension shall apply for a minimum of 14 days, for residential
Customers located in the designated area. The 14-day suspension shall also apply to any
residential or non-residential Customer who notifies the Company and provides evidence that
their financial circumstances have changed as a result of the outage.

Contracting for Distribution Load Relief Program Service
There are two options under this Program under which a Direct Participant or Aggregator may
contract to provide Load Relief during Load Relief Periods designated by the Company: the
Voluntary Participation Option and the Reservation Payment Option. This program is applicable
to Direct Participants and Aggregators who agree in writing to provide, either on a Voluntary
Participation or Reservation Payment Option, Load Relief in a Company Designated Area, when
the Company designates a Contingency or Immediate Event during a Capability Period.
A Direct Participant must contract to provide at least 50 kW of Load Relief. An Aggregator must
contract to provide at least 50 kW of Load Relief.
If other requirements for service under this Program are met, Electric Generating Equipment may
be used to participate under this Program subject to the provisions set forth in Section 4 below.
The participating Direct Participant or Aggregator is responsible for determining that the operation
of the generating equipment under this Program shall be in conformance with any governmental
limitations on operation.
3.

Definitions
The following terms are defined for purposes of this Program only:
Aggregator: A party other than the Company that represents and aggregates the load of
Customers who collectively have a Load Relief potential of 50 kW or greater in a Company
Designated Area and is responsible for the actions of the Customers it represents, including
performance and, as applicable, repayments to the Company.
Capability Period: The period during which the Company can request Load Relief. The
Capability Period shall be from May 1 through September 30.
CBL: Customer baseline load as calculated under the Companys Customer Baseline Load
methodology, using either the weather-sensitive adjustment option (the weather adjusted CBL)
or the average-day CBL. The Customer Baseline Load methodology shall be described in the
Companys baseline operating procedure, which shall be published on the Companys website.
CBL Verification Methodology: The methodology used by the Company to verify the actual
Load Relief provided (kW and kWh) during each hour of each designated Load Relief Period and
Test. Actual load levels are compared to the customer baseline loads to verify whether the Direct
Participant or Aggregator provided the kW of contracted Load Relief; provided, however, that the
Company may estimate the data pursuant to the Company's operating procedure if data is not
available for all intervals. When the weather-adjusted CBL methodology is used and the
calculated weather adjustment falls outside of the Company defined ranges (i.e., the Company
deems the weather to be atypical on the day of a Load Relief Period or Test when compared to the
baseline period), the Company may review and revise a participants baseline based on the
Customers historical load data. When the weather-adjusted CBL methodology is used, the
Company, at its own discretion, may select alternate hours for the adjustment period to calculate
the weather adjustment in order to accurately reflect the customers typical usage.

Metering
a. Participation under this program requires that each participants entire service be measured by
interval metering with telecommunications capability used by the Company for monthly
billing. If an Aggregator takes service under this program, all customers of the Aggregator
must meet the metering and telecommunications requirements specified herein.
b.

If, at the time of application for service under this program, the Company does not bill the
participant monthly using interval metering, the Customer shall arrange for the furnishing and
installation of interval metering with telecommunications capability to be used for billing and
arrange for telecommunications service, at the participants expense.

c.

If the Company does not bill the participant monthly using interval metering at the time of
application, participation in the Reservation Payment Option shall not commence unless both
interval metering and meter communications are operational. If the Company receives a
completed application by April 1, service can commence May 1 if interval metering is
installed by April 1 and meter communications are operational by April 30. If the Company
receives a completed application by May 1, service can commence on June 1 if the interval
metering is installed by May 1 and meter communications are operational by May 31. If the
application is received by May 1, but the above deadlines for installation of interval metering
and meter communications are not met, service shall commence on July 1, provided that
interval metering is installed by June 1 and meter communications are operational by June 30.

d.

The Company shall install interval metering within 21 business days of the later of the
Companys receipt of an applicants payment for an upgrade to interval metering and: (i)
evidence that a request has been made to the telephone carrier (e.g., receipt of a job number)
to secure a dedicated phone line for a meter with landline telecommunications capability or
(ii) the active Internet Protocol (IP) address that the wireless carrier has assigned to the
modems ESN for a meter with wireless capability. If the Company misses the installation
time frame for the Reservation Payment Option, it shall make the otherwise earned
Reservation Payment to the Direct Participant or Aggregator, unless the meter delay was
caused by a reason outside the Companys control, such as the telephone companys failure to
install a landline or, if, at the Companys request, the Commission grants the Company an
exception due to a condition such as a major outage or storm. The otherwise earned
Reservation Payment shall be calculated by determining the number of months between the
earliest month in which the customer could have begun participation had the meter been
installed within the required timeframe (assuming the Companys acceptance of a completed
application and receipt of payment for the meter upgrade) and the first month following the
completed installation, and multiplying that number by the pledged kW and associated perkW Reservation Payment Rate.

e.

The Company shall visit the premises at the request of the Customer to investigate a
disruption of normal communications between the phone line or wireless communication and
the meter, or operation of external pulses from the meter to the Customers energy
management equipment. The Company shall charge for its visit based upon the cost to the
Company.

Voluntary Participation Option


a. Performance Payments for Load Relief
Except as specified in Section 9.c, the Company shall make Performance Payments to a
Direct Participant or Aggregator participating in the Voluntary Participation Option for Load
Relief provided during a designated Load Relief Period.
The Performance Payment rate is $0.15 per kWh.
The Performance Payment amount paid per event is equal to the applicable Payment Rate
multiplied by the average hourly kWh of Load Relief provided during the event multiplied by
the number of event hours.
b.

Application of Payments
The Company shall make payment to a Direct Participant or Aggregator, after the end of the
program year, for the sum of the payments due for all Load Relief Periods in the Capability
Period. Payments shall be made by bill credit, check, or wire transfer.

e. Performance Factor
i. When a Contingency Event is called, the Performance Factor is:
a) The quotient of average hourly kW of Load Relief provided by the Direct
Participant or Aggregator during the first four hours of the Load Relief
Period and up to the kW of contracted Load Relief.
ii. When an Immediate Event is called, the Performance Factor is:
a) The quotient of the average hourly kW of Load Relief provided by the

Direct Participant or Aggregator during the first four hours of the Load
Relief Period and up to the kW of contracted Load Relief.
iii. When a Test is called, the Performance Factor is:
a) The quotient of the kW of Load Relief provided during the Test Hour
by the Direct Participant or Aggregator up to the kW of contracted
Load Relief.
iv. When more than one Contingency Event, Immediate Event and/or Test is called
during the month, the Performance Factor is the average of the Performance Factors
for the Direct Participant or the average of the Performance Factors for the
Aggregator during that month. Where service is taken under this Program by an
Aggregator, the kW of contracted Load Relief is measured on a portfolio basis by
CBL Verification Methodology.
a) The Performance Factor for the month is used to calculate Reservation
Payments for that month and each month thereafter until the month in
which the next Test or Load Relief Period is called by the Company
during the current or subsequent years Capability Period.
b) If the Direct Participant or Aggregator did not participate in the
program during the prior Capability Period, and no Load Relief
Periods or Tests have been designated since the Direct Participant or
Aggregator enrolled in the program, payment for the current month
shall be made based on an assumed Performance Factor of 0.50. A
subsequent true-up shall be made once an actual Performance Factor is
established either via a Test or Load Relief Event. The true-up may
result in a credit or a charge to the participant until a Performance
Factor is established either via a Test or Load Relief Event.
v.

f.

The performance Factor is truncated to two decimal places and has an upper limit of
1.00 and a lower limit of 0.00.

Application of Payments
Reservation Payments shall be calculated on a monthly basis. Payments shall be made by bill
credit, check or wire transfer.

Definitions
The following terms are defined for purposes of this Program only:
Aggregator: A party other than the Company that represents and aggregates the load of
Customers who collectively have a Load Relief potential of 50 kW or greater in a Company
Designated Area and is responsible for the actions of the Customers it represents, including
performance and, as applicable, repayments to the Company.
Capability Period: The period during which the Company can request Load Relief. The
Capability Period shall be from May 1 through September 30.
CBL: Customer baseline load as calculated under the Companys Customer Baseline Load
methodology, using either the weather-sensitive adjustment option (the weather adjusted CBL)
or the average-day CBL. The Customer Baseline Load methodology shall be described in the
Companys baseline operating procedure, which shall be published on the Companys website.
CBL Verification Methodology: The methodology used by the Company to verify the actual
Load Relief provided (kW and kWh) during each hour of each designated Load Relief Period and
Test.
Actual load levels are compared to the customer baseline loads to verify whether the Direct
Participant or Aggregator provided the kW of contracted Load Relief; provided, however, that the
Company may estimate the data pursuant to the Company's operating procedure if data is not
available for all intervals. When the weather-adjusted CBL methodology is used and the
calculated weather adjustment falls outside of the Company defined ranges (i.e., the Company
deems the weather to be atypical on the day of a Load Relief Period or Test when compared to the
baseline period), the Company may review and revise a participants baseline based on the
Customers historical load data. When the weather-adjusted CBL methodology is used, the
Company, at its own discretion, may select alternate hours for the adjustment period to calculate
the weather adjustment in order to accurately reflect the customers typical usage.
Contracted Hours: The four-hour period within a weekday, Monday through Friday during the
Capability Period excluding federal holidays, during which the Direct Participant or Aggregator
contracts to provide Load Relief whenever the Company designates a Planned Event.
Direct Participant: A Customer who enrolls under this Program directly with the Company for a
single account and agrees to provide at least 50 kW of Load Relief.
Electric Generating Equipment: (a) electric generating equipment that is served under Service
Classification No. 5 or Service Classification No. 14 and used to provide Load Relief under this
Program; or (b) emergency electric generating equipment that is interconnected and operated in
compliance with rules governing Emergency Generating Facilities used for self supply and used to
provide Load Relief under this Program.

6.
Metering
a.
Participation under this Program requires that each participants entire service be measured by
interval metering with telecommunications capability used by the Company for monthly billing. If an
Aggregator takes service under this Program, all customers of the Aggregator must meet the metering
and telecommunications requirements specified herein.
b.

If, at the time of application for service under this Program, the Company does not bill the participant
monthly using interval metering, the Customer shall arrange for the furnishing and installation of
interval metering with telecommunications capability to be used for billing and arrange for
telecommunications service, at the participants expense.

c.

If the Company does not bill the participant monthly using interval metering at the time of
application, participation in the Reservation Payment Option shall not commence unless both interval
metering and meter communications are operational. If the Company receives a completed
application by April 1, service can commence May 1 if interval metering is installed by April 1 and
meter communications are operational by April 30. If the Company receives a completed application
by May 1, service can commence on June 1 if the interval metering is installed by May 1 and meter
communications are operational by May 31. If the application is received by May 1, but the above
deadlines for installation of interval metering and meter communications are not met, service shall
commence on July 1, provided that interval metering is installed by June 1 and meter
communications are operational by June 30.

d.

The Company shall install interval metering within 21 business days of the later of the Companys
receipt of an applicants payment for an upgrade to interval metering and: (i) evidence that a request
has been made to the telephone carrier (e.g., receipt of a job number) to secure a dedicated phone line
for a meter with landline telecommunications capability or (ii) the active Internet Protocol (IP)
address that the wireless carrier has assigned to the modems ESN for a meter with wireless
capability. If the Company misses the installation time frame for the Reservation Payment Option, it
shall make the otherwise earned Reservation Payment to the Direct Participant or Aggregator, unless
the meter delay was caused by a reason outside the Companys control, such as the telephone
companys failure to install a landline or, if, at the Companys request, the Commission grants the
Company an exception due to a condition such as a major outage or storm. The otherwise earned
Reservation Payment shall be calculated by determining the number of months between the earliest
month in which the customer could have begun participation had the meter been installed within the
required timeframe (assuming the Companys acceptance of a completed application and receipt of
payment for the meter upgrade) and the first month following the completed installation, and
multiplying that number by the pledged kW and associated per kW Reservation Payment Rate.

payment agreement or the cost of one-half of one months average usage,
whichever is greater, unless such amount is less than the cost of one-half of one

The deferred payment agreement must be returned within six business days from the

returned to the Company before the scheduled termination date in order to avoid

Company may demand full payment of the total outstanding charges and send a final
termination notice in accordance with Rule 5.A and 16 NYCRR 11.4 and ll.10.
A late payment charge of 1.5% per month (18% per year) will be assessed to any
unpaid installments including any unpaid regular bills issued for service provided

TERMINATION OF SERVICE DUE TO NO ACCESS


In the case of a nonresidential customer, failure to provide the Company reasonable access to the
premises served for any necessary or proper purposes in connection with rendering electric service may
result in termination of service so long as the requirements of 16 NYCRR 13.8 (c) have been met. These
purposes include meter installation, reading, testing, maintenance, removal and securing of the
Company's property. The Company shall not terminate service under this section if the customer has
advised the Company that he or she does not control access to the meter(s) and who does control the
access.

2. Limitation on Liability:
The Company shall endeavor at all times to provide regular and uninterrupted service to the ESCO, its Customers,

beyond the control of the Company (including, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, executive or
administrative rules or orders issued from time to time by State or Federal officers, commissions, boards, or bodies
having jurisdiction) or because of the ordinary negligence of the Company or its employees, contractors,
subcontractors, servants or agents, the Company shall not be liable to the ESCO, its Customers, or a DC, as
applicable, therefor.
Compliance with directives of the NYISO shall, without limitation by reason of specification, constitute a
circumstance beyond the control of the Company for which the Company shall not be liable; provided, however, that

Companys system, or any other systems with which it is directly or indirectly interconnected, if in the Companys
sole judgment or that of the NYISO, such action shall prevent, alleviate or reduce the emergency condition, for such
period of time as the Company or the NYISO deems necessary.
ESCOs serving Customers who require service which is uninterrupted, unreduced or unimpaired on a continuous
basis should ensure that the Customers provide their own emergency or back-up capability.
The Company shall not be liable for any special, incidental, indirect, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages,
including, but not limited to, lost profits, purchased power costs, or amounts owed by a DC or a Customer to its

General Retail Access Program as set forth in the Companys tariff or the Electric Supplier Manual, even if the
Company has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
3. Force Majeure:
The Company and the ESCO/DC shall use due diligence in performing their obligations under this Tariff. Neither
party shall be liable to the other in damages for any act, omission, occurrence, failure or delay of performance,
damage, loss, injury or expense caused by any act of God, strike, lockout, act of the public enemy, act of terror,
insurrection, civil unrest, war, blockade, riot, epidemic, landslide, extraordinary lightning, earthquake, fire, volcanic
activity, extraordinary storm, flood, washout, explosion, accidental damage to or destruction of transmission or
distribution facilities, equipment or machinery or electric lines or wires, or the seizure or appropriation of facilities
or electricity by any governmental authority of competent jurisdiction or any other binding order of any court or
public authority that the party has resisted by all reasonable legal means, or any other cause not reasonably within
the control of the party asserting force majeure, and which such party is unable by the exercise of due diligence to
avoid, prevent or overcome. A partys failure to avert or to settle a strike or other labor dispute shall not be deemed,
within the meaning of this Rule, a matter reasonably within that partys control. Financial loss or other economic
hardship shall in no event constitute force majeure hereunder.

5. Purchase of ESCO Accounts Receivable Program (POR):


(a) ESCOs that elect the Companys consolidated billing option for all or a portion of their customers will be required to sell
their accounts receivable for such customers to the Company under the terms of the POR. ESCOs continue to have the
right to issue their own bill using dual billing for all or a portion of their customers. Such ESCOs will be precluded from
participating in the POR for customers receiving dual billing.
(b) The POR obviates the need for the Company to prorate partial customer payments among ESCOs that are participating in
the POR.

6. Account Separation Fee


In accordance with Section 9.C.4 of the UBP addendum to this schedule, an ESCO desiring to issue the Consolidated Bill for a
customer with a Combination Account may request the Company to establish a separate account for the electric or gas service to
be supplied by the ESCO. A fee of $5.00 will be charged to the ESCO requesting establishment of a separate electric or gas

Calculation of the Commodity Charge


1.
S.C. Nos. 1, 2, 6 and P.S.C. No. 18 Street Lighting
The charge for Electric Power Supply provided by RG&E shall fluctuate with the market price of electricity and
shall include the following components; Energy, Energy Losses, Unaccounted For Energy (UFE), Capacity,
Capacity Reserves, Capacity Losses, Ancillary Services/NTAC, transmission project costs allocated to the
Company under the NYISO tariff as approved by FERC, hedge adjustment and a Supply Adjustment Charge. The
methodology for calculating the Energy and Capacity components of the charge for Electric Power Supply is as
follows:
Energy Component:
For each day of the customers billing cycle, a daily average value of market supply is derived from forward trading
market prices of electricity for the region and previous true-ups, weighted to reflect hourly usage based on service
classification load profiles for the calendar month and day-type (Weekday, Saturday or Sunday). Separate
calculations shall be made for each metered time period for the Customers individual Service Classification.
The daily load weighted market price of energy shall be adjusted to reflect losses. These daily average market
supply values are used in conjunction with the service classification profile to develop a weighted average value of
market supply for each metered time period within the Customers specific billing period. The weighted average of
market supply is multiplied by the Customers metered kWh usage for each metered time period to determine the
value of market supply.
Capacity Component:
The Capacity component is calculated using the market-clearing price of capacity converted to $/kWh as
determined from the NYISOs monthly and spot capacity auctions. The capacity price shall also include capacity
losses and reserves. The service class profile shall be used to determine the customers capacity responsibility of
state-wide system peak demand. A new capacity responsibility amount shall be effective each May 1st. The
service class profile contribution to the system peak demand may need to be adjusted for a growth factor.
Capacity Charge = UCAP Charge + Demand Curve Reserve Charge
UCAP Charge = (UCAPreq * (1 + Reservereq)* Pricemonthlyauc)
UCAPreq = The demand for the customers service class that occurred at the time of the New York system peak
of the prior year, grossed up for losses and a growth factor.
Reservereq = Additional reserve requirement as required by NYISO.
Pricemonthlyauc = Monthly NYISO auction price.
Demand Curve Reserve Charge = (UCAPreq * DemandCurveReservereq)* Pricespotauc)
UCAPreq = Described above.
DemandCurveReservereq = Allocation of additional capacity requirement as required by the NYISOs
demand curve.
Pricespotauc = Monthly NYISO SPOT auction price.

Non-Hourly Pricing S.C. Nos. 3, 4, 7, 9

The charge for Electric Power Supply provided by the Company shall fluctuate with the market price of electricity and
shall include the following components: Energy, Energy Losses, Unaccounted for Energy (UFE), Capacity, Capacity
Reserves, Capacity Losses, ancillary services, NTAC, and a Supply Adjustment Charge. The methodology for
calculating the Energy and Capacity components of the charge for Electric Power Supply is as follows:
Energy Component:
For each day of the customer's billing cycle, a daily average value of market supply is derived from the day ahead NYISO
posted Locational Based Marginal Prices (LBMP) of electricity for the region weighted to reflect hourly usage based on
service classification load profiles for the calendar month and day-type (Weekday, Saturday or Sunday). Separate calculations
shall be made for each metered time period for the Customers individual Service Classification.
The daily load weighted market price of energy shall be adjusted to reflect losses and Unaccounted For Energy. These daily
average market supply values are used in conjunction with the service classification profile to develop a weighted average
value of market supply for each metered time period within the Customer's specific billing period. The weighted average value
of market supply is multiplied by the Customer's metered kWh usage for each metered time period to determine the value of
market supply.
Capacity Component:
The Capacity component is calculated using the market-clearing price of capacity in $/kWh as determined from the
NYISO's monthly capacity auction price. The Capacity Component will be revised in accordance with each monthly UCAP
auction held by the NYISO. The capacity price will also include capacity losses and reserves based on the NYISO monthly
and spot capacity auctions. The service class profile will be used to determine the customers capacity responsibility of
state-wide system peak demand. A new capacity responsibility amount will be effective each May 1st. The service class
profile contribution to the system peak demand may need to be adjusted for a growth factor.
Capacity Charge = UCAP Charge + Demand Curve Reserve Charge
UCAP Charge = (UCAPreq * (1 + Reservereq)* Pricemonthlyauc)
UCAPreq = The demand for the customers service class that occurred at the time of the New York system peak of the prior
year, grossed up for losses and a growth factor.
Reservereq = Additional reserve requirement as required by NYISO.
Pricemonthlyauc = Monthly NYISO auction price.
Demand Curve Reserve Charge = (UCAPreq * DemandCurveReservereq)* Pricespotauc)
UCAPreq = Described above.
DemandCurveReservereq = Allocation of additional capacity requirement as required by the NYISOs demand curve.
Pricespotauc = Monthly NYISO SPOT auction price.
Ancillary Services/NYPA Transmission Adjustment Charge (NTAC) Component:
The ancillary services/NTAC will be forecasted each month and included in the supply price and subsequently reconciled.
Supply Adjustment Charge Component:
All costs incurred related to supply will be reconciled and recovered or refunded through a subsequent Supply Adjustment
Charge incorporated in the supply charge.

In a month where the Host Account has Excess Generation, the Excess Generation shall be
converted to the equivalent monetary value at the per kWh rate applicable to the Host Account's
service classification. The remote net metering credit shall first be applied to any outstanding
charges on the Host Account's current electric bill.
For Non-hourly Pricing customers, remote net metering credits shall be defined as the Excess
Generation multiplied by the Host Accounts applicable tariff per kWh rates. For Hourly Pricing
customers, as defined under Billing for Hourly Pricing customers, remote net metering credits shall
be defined as the excess monetary credit.
Satellite Accounts:
Any remaining monetary credit from the Host shall be allocated to each Satellite Account in
accordance with the Host Account designation pursuant to Section II. The portion designated for
the Satellite Accounts shall be applied to the Satellite Account bill as each subsequent Satellite
Account bill is calculated. If a monetary credit remains after applying credits to all designated
Satellite Accounts, the credit shall be carried forward on the Host Account and the allocation
process between Host and Satellite Accounts shall repeat until the value of the excess credit is
zero, or until all associated accounts are finaled. In the case of two Satellite Accounts billed on the
same day, the excess credit shall be applied to the highest usage account first.
The credit applied to each Host or Satellite Account shall not exceed the current electric delivery

a. Non-Hourly Pricing
i. If the electricity (kWh) supplied by the Company exceeds the electricity supplied by the
customer to the Company during the billing period, the customer shall be billed for the net
kWh supplied by the Company to the customer at the standard service class rates. For
customers billed on time-differentiated rates (TOU meter), e.g., On-Peak/Off-Peak, netting
shall occur in each time period.
ii. If the electricity (kWh) supplied by the customer to the Company during the billing period
exceeds the electricity (kWh) supplied by the Company to the customer, a kWh credit
shall be carried forward for the next billing period. For customers billed on timedifferentiated rates (TOU meter), e.g., On-Peak/Off-Peak, the kWh credit shall be carried
forward as a credit to the appropriate time period.
iii. For a demand-billed farm waste customer, prior to carrying forward any kWh credit, the kWh shall be
converted to a dollar value using the applicable tariff per kWh rate and applied as a credit to the
current utility bill. If the dollar value of the kWh exceeds the current utility bill, any remaining
dollars shall be converted back to kWh and carried forward for the next billing period as a kWh credit.
For customer billed on TOU rates, if the electricity (kWh) supplied by the customer to the Company is not
metered for each TOU period and until such time as metering is installed to measure electricity supplied to the
Company in each TOU period, an allocation of the electricity supplied to the Company shall be done according
to the allocation factors set forth in a Special Provision provided in each service classification in this Schedule.
b.

i. For customers billed on Hourly Pricing, for each hour, the customers usage and its generation are
netted within the hour.
ii. Kilowatt-hour charges are calculated using the consumption in each hour in which the customers
usage exceeds the customers generation multiplied by the applicable price.
iii. The Company shall maintain two monetary values for the excess credit.
(a) For each hour the electricity generated and supplied by the customer exceeds the customers
usage, the kWh difference is multiplied by the avoided cost for energy for that hour. The result is
the excess credit priced at avoided cost for that hour.
(b) For each hour in which the electricity generated and supplied by the customer exceeds the
customers usage, the kWh difference is summed together and then multiplied by the sum of the
remaining per kWh charges (e.g., Energy Charge, Transition Charge, Merchant Function Charge,
Ancillary & NTAC, transmission project costs allocated to the Company under the NYISO tariff
as approved by FERC, SBC, TSAS, RDM, and Supply Adjustment Charge).
(c) The Company shall use excess credits from the prior months bill period and the current bill
period to develop a ratio between the excess credit priced at avoided cost and the excess credit
for remaining per kWh charges. The excess credits are applied to the current bill. Any remaining
credits are multiplied by the ratio to determine the excess credit at avoided cost and the excess
credit for remaining per kWh charges to carry forward to the next month.

Calculation and Application of Net Metering Credits


a. If more than one Host Account is designated by the customer and there is excess generation from more
than one Host Account, the Company shall apply credits from the Host Accounts to the Satellite
Accounts in the following order:
1. Grandfathered or Demand-billed Host Accounts participating in Farm Waste (Facility
Located and Used for Farm Operations) or Farm Wind Electric Service Options;
2. Grandfathered or Demand-billed Host Accounts participating in Non-Residential Solar, NonResidential Wind, or Micro-Hydroelectric Service Options;
3. Host Account participating in Fuel Cell or Farm Waste (Facility Located and Used at
Premises) Service Options;
4. Any other non-demand-billed Host Accounts.
b.

Application of Monetary Credits


Host Account:
In a month where the Host Account has Excess Generation, the Excess Generation shall be
converted to the equivalent monetary value at the per kWh rate applicable to the Host Account's
service classification. The remote net metering credit shall first be applied to any outstanding
charges on the Host Account's current electric bill.
For Non-hourly Pricing customers, remote net metering credits shall be defined as the Excess
Generation multiplied by the Host Accounts applicable tariff per kWh rates. For Hourly Pricing
customers, as defined under Billing for Hourly Pricing customers, remote net metering credits
shall be defined as the excess monetary credit.
Satellite Accounts:
Any remaining monetary credit from the Host shall be allocated allocated to each Satellite
Account in accordance with the Host Account designation pursuant to Section II. The portion
designated for the Satellite Accounts shall be applied to the charges for each Satellite Account bill
as each subsequent Satellite Account bill is calculated. If a monetary credit remains after applying
credits to all designated Satellite Accounts, the credit shall be carried forward on the Host Account
and the allocation process between Host and Satellite Accounts shall repeat until the value of the
excess credit is zero, or until all associated accounts are finaled. In the case of two Satellite
Accounts billed on the same day, the excess credit shall be applied to the highest usage account
first.
The credit applied to a Satellite Account shall not exceed the current electric delivery charges, and
if applicable, Company supply charges.

Application of Volumetric kWh Credits:


As each Satellite Account is billed, excess kWh designated to the Satellite Account is converted to
a monetary credit and applied to the per kWh charges on the Satellite Account. Monetary credits
are calculated using the per kWh rate for the Service Classification applicable to the Satellite
Account. If a credit remains after applying to the Satellite Account, the credit is converted back to
kWh based on the per kWh rate for the Service Classification applicable to the Satellite Account
and the kWh are transferred to the Host Account. This process between Host and Satellite
Accounts shall repeat until the value of the excess credit is zero, or until all the Satellite Accounts
have been billed. Any remaining kWh credits shall be carried forward on the Host Account to the
following month. In the case of two Satellite Accounts billed on the same day, the excess credit
shall be applied to the highest usage account first.
The credit applied to a Satellite Account shall not exceed the current per kWh electric delivery
charges, and if applicable, Company supply charges.

A CDG Host Account that is: demand-billed; or has farm waste electric generating equipment Facility Located
and Used at its Premises; or has fuel cell electric generating equipment, shall receive monetary credits in a month
where the Host Account has Excess Generation. The monetary credit shall first be applied to any outstanding
charges on the Host Accounts current electric bill.
i.
Excess Generation shall be converted to the equivalent monetary value at the per kWh rate applicable to
the Host Accounts service classification for a demand-billed customer that does not have farm waste
electric generating equipment at its Non-Farm Location; or does not have fuel cell electric generating
equipment.
ii.
Excess Generation shall be converted to the equivalent monetary value at the Companys Buy Back
Service Classification No. 5 for a customer with farm waste electric generating equipment at its NonFarm Location; or fuel cell electric generating equipment.
Any remaining monetary credits shall be allocated to each Satellite Account in accordance with the CDG Host
designation pursuant to Section 3 as each Satellite Account is billed.
The monetary credit applied to the CDG Host Account shall not exceed the current electric delivery charges, and
if applicable, Company supply charges.
The monetary credit applied to each Satellite Account shall not exceed the current electric delivery charges, and if
applicable, Company supply charges or Consolidated Bill charges from the ESCO.
b.

Calculation and Application of Volumetric Credits:


All other CDG Hosts and their Satellites shall receive volumetric credits in a month where the Host Account has
Excess Generation :
i.
Any Excess Generation from the CDG Host shall be allocated to each Satellite Account in accordance
with the Host Account designation pursuant to Section 3.
ii.
As each Satellite Account is billed, excess kWh designated to the Satellite Account is converted to a
monetary credit and applied to the per kWh charges on the Satellite Account and if applicable,
Consolidated Bill charges from the ESCO. Monetary credits are calculated using the per kWh rate for
the Service Classification applicable to the Satellite Account. If a credit remains after applying to the
Satellite Account, the credit is converted back to kWh based on the per kWh rate for the Service
Classification applicable to the Satellite Account.

c.

If a monetary or volumetric credit remains after applying to the Satellite Account, the remaining credit shall
remain on the Satellite Account until used. Satellite credits shall not expire at the end of an annual period.
Any unallocated credits or allocations retained at the CDG Host Account, will be combined with the next months
volumetric or monetary credits to be applied to the CDG Host Account and Satellite Accounts, as applicable. If
the CDG Host Account was previously established as a net metered customer-generator or Remote Net Metered
Host, any outstanding credits shall be included in the CDG Hosts first bill pursuant to this Rule.
If the Company is unable to obtain an actual meter read for Host Accounts, the Company shall not be required to
estimate Excess Generation output for determining credits to be applied to CDG Satellites.
i.
CDG Host Accounts will be read every month.

b) Emergency Demand Response Period Notification
The Company shall notify Customers served under this Rider when the NYISO declares an emergency, in
accordance with Attachment G to NYISOs Services Tariff. Notice shall be provided by telephone, e-mail,
facsimile and/or other electronic means, as agreed upon by the Company and the Customer. Notification shall
occur approximately 2 hours prior to the need for load reduction by Customers. The Company shall endeavor
to provide earlier notification when possible, but shorter notification periods may be necessary. The Company
shall also notify customers served under this Rider when the NYISO declares the emergency to be over.
Reductions to the load served by the Company by Customers under this Rider in response to NYISO-declared
emergencies shall be voluntary. In order to receive payments under this Rider, Customers must be able to
demonstrate that their load curtailment or operation of emergency generating equipment was in effect for the
entire period of each NYISO-declared emergency. The Customer shall designate in writing an authorized
representative and an alternate representative to receive the notice.
c)

Rates and Payments


Customers taking service under this Rider shall pay the rates and charges that would otherwise be applicable
under this service classification and shall be subject to all other terms and conditions of this service
classification. The Company shall make payment for load reductions to a Customer taking service under this
Rider and for which the Company can verify load reduction during the Emergency Demand Response Periods.
Upon Company verification of load reduction, the Company shall pay the Customer at least 90% of the
NYISO payment for each event. The NYISO payment shall be the higher of $500 per MWh or the zonal realtime Locational-Based Marginal Price (LBMP) per MWh of demand reduced. If NYISO activates the EDRP
for four hours or less, the NYISO shall pay the higher of $500 per MWh or the zonal real-time LBMP per
Mwh of demand reduced, for the duration of the EDRP activation or two hours, whichever is greater.

Metering and Meter Data Provision


The customer shall have installed the necessary equipment, including interval metering at each participating
meter location. A participating customer with a generator also shall require a separate interval meter to verify
curtailment is not supplied by that generator. Such metering shall be installed, controlled, operated and
maintained by the Company at the customer's expense. Participating customers shall be responsible for only
those metering costs not covered by discounts provided by NYSERDA, or any other non-Company source.
Regardless of which Demand Reduction Provider the customer may choose, the Company may require
installation of additional communication equipment, and an internet based software subscription service
necessary for the determination of CBL and for the administration of this and any other curtailment program
(e.g., Emergency Demand Response Program). This subscription service shall also provide the customer with
the ability to review and monitor their energy consumption patterns on a daily basis. The customer is
responsible for making adequate arrangements with their telecommunications provider for communication
equipment. The Company's monthly charge for the software subscription service is $40 per month. Customers
receiving metering from competitive metering providers may participate in this program using metering
equipment and communications capabilities that the Company has determined can provide the necessary
hourly interval usage data.
Competitive Metering
A Customer taking service under this service classification which has a measured demand of 50 kW or greater for
two consecutive months during the most recent 12 months is eligible to contract with a qualified Meter Service
Provider (MSP) and a qualified Meter Data Service Provider (MDSP) to provide meter services and meter data
services, in accordance with Rule 3.E.4 and Rule 4.A.3 of this tariff. Meter service and meter data service shall be
provided in accordance with Addendum MET to this tariff.

Bidding by the DSR


1.) The DSR will submit its demand reduction bids to the DRP in accordance with the agreement.
2.) Bids must be submitted to the DRP by 11:00 a.m. two days ahead of the curtailment day, (e.g. by
11:00 a.m. on Monday for Wednesday). However, bids for Saturday and Sunday must be submitted
by 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, and bids for Monday and Tuesday must be submitted by 11:00 a.m. on
Friday.
3.) Bids must be submitted in blocks in accordance with the agreement between the DSR and the DRP.
4.) Bids must be submitted in dollar and/or cents increments per KW for the desired block(s) of time in
accordance with the agreement between the DSR and the DRP.
5.) The DSR could include a curtailment initiation cost as an integral part of their bid.
6.) The DSR will submit bids that the DRP will aggregate into whole MW increments.
i) DSRs must bid in 0.10 MW (100 KW) increments.
ii) The 0.10 MW (100KW) units will be inclusive of the appropriate loss factor.
iii) The 0.10 MW (100KW) units may include the curtailment initiation factor.
7.) A bid can not be recalled or changed once it has been accepted by the DPR.

g) Bidding by the DRP


The DRP must submit its demand reduction bid to the NYISO in whole MW units. The DRP will
aggregate the DSR bids, at each price level bid by the DSRs, into whole MW units. In the event that the
total aggregated demand reduction bid by the DSRs does not total to a whole MW unit, the individual
DSR demand reduction bids will be pro-rated downward so that the total DRP bid will total to the next
lowest whole MW (e.g. DSR bids that totaled 2.3 MW would be pro-rated so that the total DRP bid was
2.0 MW). The DRP will aggregate bids from all of the service classifications at each price level. The
DRP will be notified of the acceptance of the bid by the NYISO one day ahead. The DRP will notify the
DSR upon receipt of notification of the acceptance of a bid by the NYISO on the day prior to the day of
the curtailment.

h) DSR Customer Baseline Load and Actual Consumption
The DSR Customer Baseline Load ("CBL") is an average hourly energy consumption that is used to
determine the level of curtailment for each individual DSR. The CBL will be calculated according to the
NYISO Day-Ahead Response Program Manual that is posted on the NYISO's web-site.
The DRP shall submit demand reduction bids to the NYISO. All DSRs whose bids are included, in
whole or in part, in the DRP's demand reduction bid that is scheduled and accepted by the NYISO, are
expected to reduce their real-time energy consumption by the amount of the bid accepted by the DRP.
The amount of actual real-time curtailment determined for a DSR will be equal to its CBL less its actual
real-time consumption during the specified curtailment.
i)

Payment by DSR
DSRs taking service under this rider will pay the rates and charges that would otherwise be applicable
under this service classification and will be subject to all other terms and conditions of this service
classification. Failure to pay any charges associated with service under this service classification,
including any penalties charged per section (k) of this rider, will result in the rescinding the DSR's right
