Large General Service - Schedule GL


This schedule is applicable to single and three-phase general service including lighting and power.

This schedule is mandatory for all customers whose monthly maximum demand has exceeded 200 KW for any three months during the preceding 12 months and whose average demand for the preceding 12 months also exceeds 200 KW.

Any customer whose monthly maximum demand has fallen below 200 KW for any three months during the preceding 12 months and whose average demand for the preceding 12 months is also less than 200 KW may be required to take service on Schedule G-2.


This service applies to areas within the electric service territory of the City of Azusa.

Minimum charge: The monthly minimum charge is the monthly demand charge or $167.81, whichever is greater.

Energy charge:
  • First 500 kwh, per kwh 17.48¢
  • Next 4,500 kwh, per kwh 15.39¢
  • All excess kwh, per kwh 9.50¢

Special Conditions
Service will be supplied at one standard voltage through one meter.

Billing Demand
The billing demand in any month shall be the average KW input indicated or recorded by instruments to be supplied, owned, and maintained by the Utility and at the Utility's expense. The instrument will be placed on the consumer's premises adjacent to the watt-hour meter. It is determined in the 15-minute interval in which the consumption of electric energy is greater than in any other 15-minute interval in the month, but not less than 50% of the highest billing demand in the preceding eleven months.
  • Billing demand shall be determined to the nearest KW.
  • A 30-minute interval will be used whenever the measured maximum demand has exceeded 400 KW for three consecutive months and until it has fallen below 300 KW for 12 consecutive months. The maximum demand may be based on a shorter interval where the demand is intermittent or subjected to violent fluctuations.

Power Factor Adjustment
When the billing demand has exceeded 200 KW for three consecutive months, a kilovar-hour meter will be installed. The charges will be increased for each KVAR in excess of 60% of the billing demand in the amount of $0.50 per KVAR.

Calculating KiloVars
The kilovars of reactive demand will be calculated by multiplying the kilowatts of measured maximum demand by the ratio of the kilovar-hours to the kilowatt-hours. Demands in kilowatts and kilovars will be determined to the nearest 1/10 unit. A ratchet device will be installed on the kilovar-hour meter to prevent its reverse operations on leading power factors.

Voltage Discount
The charges before power factor and fuel cost adjustments will be reduced by 4% for service delivered and metered at 12 KV.

Temporary Discontinuance of Service
When the use of energy is seasonal or intermittent, no adjustments will be made for a temporary discontinuance of service. Any customer prior to resuming service within 12 months after such service was discontinued will be required to pay all charges which would have been billed if service had not been discontinued.

Other Special Conditions
The above rates are subject to fuel cost adjustments. A State Surcharge Tax may be added to the above rates.
