Electric Utility Rate

Is it possible to use the actual building demand (kW) to separate the energy usage (kWh) into tiers based on a constant multiplied (kWh/kW) and yet still use a minimum ratcheted billing demand to calculate the demand charge?

So basically, I need to use two different demands to calculate my electric charge, is this possible?

If I understand you correctly, you have a monthly demand charge plus a ratchet
charge. Yes, I have done this.

You need to define 2 electric meters. The first meter incorporates the kW
charge including TOU if this is in your rate.

For the second meter 0 the kW charge and customer service charges and just use
that to set up a ratchet charge.

See attached documents. ES-D are the rates for the two meters. ES-E includes
the monthly demand charges. ES-F shows the ratchet charges.

Thanks Paul, instead of two meters I created two utility rates and used a demand qual not a ratchet. All is working well now, thanks for your insight.
