GENERATION CHARGE AND TRANSITION COST RIDERS

The Generation Charge shall be applied to the Residential Service, Small Commercial Service, and Large Commercial Service Schedules.  The rate design of the Generation Charge may be changed from time-to-time as approved by Council.  The calculation of the Generation Charge shall be determined as a product of the following factors:

Determination of Generation Costs

The total monthly cost of generated power is derived primarily, but not limited to, bills rendered by AMP-Ohio.  The total cost may also include other generation-related costs not recovered in base rates.

Calculation of Generation Charge

The calculation of the Generation Charge is a product of the following calculation:

G = GC  

      kWh

where:

G = Generation Charge of all customers;

GC = Total generation costs (including Operation and Maintenance costs of local generation and the effects of rate stabilization) of the system for the nearest previous month; and

kWh = Sales billing units (kWh) of the current billing month of all sales customers.

Determination of Transition Costs

The Transition Cost Rider shall be calculated and implemented upon the offering of Open Access Service and adjusted annually, until all transition costs are recovered.

Transition Costs are generally defined as the difference between purchased power costs of those sources where contractual debt service costs, and/or other factors may cause average cost of that power to be significantly higher than average market prices.  The Transition Cost Rider may be adjusted based on factors including projected market price, average cost of power from transition cost sources, fixed costs of contracted power supply, implementation costs of the offering of Open Access Service, and sales of the previous year.  A reconciliation of over or under recovery of transition costs may be taken forward to the next year as a debit or credit to recoverable transition costs. 

The Transition Cost Rider shall be applicable to all sales service schedules.
