COMMON TERMS

Service Availability Charge  
The Service Availability Charge represents Crow Wing Power's cost of delivering electricity and maintaining equipment, regardless of whether a member uses power. It accounts for our investment in poles, wires, transformers, and labor to provide members with electric service.  It supports fleet, facility, and member service functions, such as outage response, line maintenance, and right-of-way clearing.

PCA
The Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) is a per kilowatt-hour adjustment to your bill due to changing wholesale power costs from Crow Wing Power’s wholesale power provider.

Demand Charge  
The Demand Charge is determined by the highest amount of power consumed during any 15 minute time period, measured in kilowatts (kW), as recorded by the meter.  The Demand Charge is calculated by taking the highest demand (kW) reading during the billing period multiplied by the demand rate.

Energy Charge  
The Energy Charge is calculated based on the metered kilowatt-hours (kWh) consumed during the billing period.  The energy used to calculate this charge is also known as a member's usage.
