Large Industrial Rate Schedule (con't)

To qualify for new Surplus Energy or to continue to purchase Surplus Energy after April 1, 2001, the Customer must sign a minimum three-year contract with NB Power as its sole electricity supplier. Surplus Energy is supplied only if it can be provided with available resources over and above the requirement of other firm commitments. The Customer must interrupt Surplus Energy use within ten (10) minutes of a request from the NB Power. Customers can purchase Surplus Energy for load additions of 2000 kilowatts or more.

Customers who currently purchase Surplus Energy above a defined load level can continue to do so for that load and any additional load that is interruptible by signing a minimum three-year contract. NB Power may also convert all or part of a Customer's existing load to Surplus Energy if the customer has a self-generation option which it agrees to defer by at least three years.

Customers are required to interrupt Surplus Energy to meet financially firm export obligations. When Surplus Energy is interrupted to meet financially firm export obligations, the Customer is reimbursed 50 percent of the cost of the replacement energy that would have otherwise incurred to supply the export sales.

Customers who fail to interrupt will be billed an additional charge which is the higher of:

(i) two times the monthly demand charge per kilowatt for the Large Industrial rate classification multiplied by the kilowatts that were not interrupted plus any incremental cost of supplying the energy, or
(ii) the costs incurred for replacement energy to supply financially firm export obligations.
