(Oct. 29/14) Effective Nov. 1, foodservice customers using between 32,000 and 45,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year can choose between the General (Class 11) and Small General (Class 10) tariffs. Previously, all customers using more than 32,000 kWh annually were charged under Class 11.

The Small General tariff has a higher energy rate per kilowatt-hour than the General tariff, but no demand charge. Therefore, any business with an uneven electricity use pattern – often referred to as a low “load factor” – could save by moving to the Small General tariff.
