What is the Demand Charge on my electric bill?

All non-residential customers are subject to a demand charge based on each customer’s maximum 15-minute demand on the distribution system each month measured in kilowatts. Depending on the customer, the demand that customer places on Conway Corp’s infrastructure varies. The demand charge is a fixed charge designed to recover some of that cost.

Conway Corp monitors demand over a 15-minute period. Customers are charged for the highest 15-minute average on the demand meter. After Conway Corp reads the meter each month, demand is reset to zero, and the meter starts over.
 

What is the Power Cost Adjustment item on my electric bill?

The Power Cost Adjustment is a separate line item on the Conway Corp electric bill which reflects the increases and decreases in the cost of power from our two percent ownership in generating plants in Arkansas and the power we buy on the wholesale power supply market.

A number of factors affect the cost of power including weather, demand, oil and gas prices, the cost to transport fuel and other items. Like other utilities, Conway Corp establishes retail rates to recover the cost of provided electric service to our customers. These costs include wages, materials, supplies and wholesale power purchases. Our retail rates do not fluctuate and a base power cost of $.0395 per kWh is included in our rates. If our true power costs exceed $.0375, the incremental increase is passed on to our customers.

Conway Corp does not make a profit on this charge. It is a pass through. If our true power costs are less than $.0395 per kWh, customers will see a credit on their bill.
