Small Agriculture Irrigation Rates

Service under this schedule shall be available throughout the District’s service area for agricultural irrigation and agricultural drainage pumping installations of less than 300 horsepower, and uses incidental thereto.

Type of Service
Three phase, sixty-hertz alternating current at available secondary voltage. At the discretion of the District, single phase service will be provided where no single motor exceeds 10 horsepower.

Monthly Charges
Horsepower (HP) Charge
March - October  $5.15 per HP per month

Minimum Bill
The minimum annual charge (total Energy and Horsepower Charges) is $8.54 per horsepower but not less than $263.58 for single phase or $316.82 for three phase installations.

Determination of Horsepower
Horsepower for billing purposes shall be the motor manufacturer’s nameplate rating of horsepower output, except that the District may elect to determine rated horsepower as calculated from actual measurement of power input during maximum normal use.

Delivery Point
Above rates are based upon service to the entire installation through a single delivery and metering point. Service at other delivery points or at different phase or voltage will be separately metered and billed.

Billing and Terms of Payment
Energy and Horsepower Charges will be billed each time the meters are read beginning in March and ending in October. If the sum of the Energy and Horsepower Charges is less than the annual minimum, the October billing will include the balance of the annual minimum. Bills are due and payable on receipt and are delinquent twenty (20) days after the billing date. Failure to receive a bill shall not release the customer from liability for payment. Bills not paid in full on or before the twentieth (20) day after the date of the bill are subject to an additional charge. This charge shall be one percent (1%) of unpaid amount for the first delinquent month; and for subsequent delinquent months, there will be a two percent (2%) charge assessed each and every month thereafter (compounded) until bill is paid in full.

General Terms and Conditions
Service under this classification is subject to the District's Rules and Regulations for Electric Service.
