SCHEDULE “A-3”

Purchased Power Cost Adjustment


When stated in the electric rate schedule, there shall be included a Purchased Power Cost Adjustment (PPCA), in addition to the other charge, representative of the purchased power charges paid by the Templeton Municipal Light Plant (TMLP).

The PPCA rate per Kilowatt-Hour (KWH) shall be computed by utilizing the total cost of purchased power paid by TMLP to its supplier for the period, adjusted for the previous month’s recovery, divided by the total KWH of energy anticipated to be billed by TMLP for the period. The PPCA rate shall be calculated to the nearest hundredth of a cent ($0.0001) in the following manner:

A. Total Purchased Power cost including NEPOOL interchange charged to Accounts #555 and #557 (*) for the month divided by:

B. Estimated KWH to be sold during the month will be compared to:

C. Base period cost of purchased power per KWH sold plus the generation charge in effect at the time, amounting to $0.0953 per KWH sold.

The difference between the base cost and the annual cost per KWH estimated to be sold will be applied in the monthly billing period. The PPCA be calculated as follows:


PPCA = [A / B] – C = [A / B] - $0.0953


(*) An adjustment to the purchased power cost shall be made monthly reflect the difference between estimated and actual purchased power costs and KWH sold in the prior period in order to recover or credit any under-collection or over-collection of purchased power charges.
