EL99-001 In the Matter of the Filing by Black Hills Power and Light Company for Approval of New General Service Large - Optional Combined Account Billing Rate Schedule.

On January 14, 1999, Black Hills Power and Light Company (BHP&L) filed an optional General Service Large (Combined Account Billing) rate tariff. BHP&L proposes to offer this optional billing to single customers in South Dakota who have multiple accounts at multiple service locations that are currently billed on BHP&L's General Service Large rate tariff. Initially, BHP&L will combine the customer's energy use, reactive energy use, and peak demand for each service and calculate the monthly electric bill on the General Service Large rate using the combined capacity and energy use totals. Metering equipment will be installed within 5 years, upon agreement between BHP&L and the customer, which will allow combined accounts to be billed on a coincident demand and billing basis upon certain requirements being met by the customer. Customers using this rate will be required to sign a new contract with BHP&L which address a potentially deregulated market.
