POWER FACTOR ADJUSTMENT
The Cooperative at its own discretion may elect to implement a power factor adjustment on the consumer's billing demand. The billing demand may be adjusted for billing purposes by the maximum measured demand multiplied by the standard power factor of 95 percent lagging and the result divided by the average power factor for the month.
