Extensions (con't)

Customers who request the extension of standard facilities beyond 90 meters are credited with a standard facility credit. This credit is applied toward the Construction Charges associated with the extension of standard facilities specified below. The standard facility credit is equal to the standard facility distance allowance per Customer times the average per meter Construction Charge of the extension.

Credit

This Construction Charge is for the extension of overhead facilities and is determined using NB Power's estimated cost times the contribution ratio given in Section O - Fees and Charges, Extension of Overhead Facilities Charges.

For the purpose of calculating the Construction Charge, the cost of the extension is estimated using the shortest distance over which NB Power can build a line from the Customer's approved Delivery Point to the nearest NB Power Facility that forms part of the Distribution System, consistent with sound economic and engineering practices. Should NB Power choose a longer route, the Customer will not be charged for the additional distance.

An optional facilities charge is applied to a Residential Service Customer requesting three-phase service according to Section J - Optional Facilities, Optional Facilities Charge.

NB Power Facilities which are considered to serve no useful purpose in the foreseeable future are removed. This means the conductor, poles, transformers and all other related equipment are removed and are therefore considered abandoned.

Facilities which have been isolated but left in place are not considered abandoned. A customer contribution is required if the facilities require upgrading for the addition of a new service in order to meet engineering and safety standards. This contribution is equal to the estimated cost of the upgrade times the contribution ratio.

NB Power determines the suitability for use of any existing facilities.
