Policy: Detroit Edison Rider No. 3
Policy: Consumers Energy Company Auxiliary or Standby Rider
Description: Detroit Edison offers standby service on a contractual basis, for a specified amount of demand, which includes a small reservation fee. Actual usage is billed at the regular rate applicable to the facility. Billing demand is calculated using a monthly maximum OR 65% of the previous summer’s demand, whichever is higher. Consumers Energy Company provides standby service for CHP customers through a contractual agreement as well, for a specified amount of demand, which includes a small reservation fee. Actual usage is charged through high demand and low energy charges. Billing demand is based on a monthly maximum, and there is a 12-month ratchet. Both of these rates are seen as not supportive to CHP.
