20VAC5-350-10. Applicability and scope.

This chapter is promulgated pursuant to the provisions of § 56-585.1 A 5 c of the Virginia Electric Utility Regulation Act, Chapter 23 (§ 56-576 et seq.) of Title 56 of the Code of Virginia. This chapter is specifically applicable to the large general service customers of Virginia's electric utilities subject to the provisions of § 56-585.1 A 5 c that have verifiable histories of using more than one megawatt of monthly demand from a single site, in any single billing month, during each of the previous three calendar years. As used in this chapter, a customer comprises all of the individual electric utility accounts owned by a single entity, located on a single site each of the previous three calendar years, and that are engaged in the same business. This chapter is also applicable to customers with highest measured demands from a single site of more than one megawatt in any single billing month if such customers do not have three calendar years of history. A customer is eligible for an exemption from any rate adjustment clause approved for a utility by the State Corporation Commission pursuant to § 56-585.1 A 5 c, if any customer can certify to the commission that it has implemented energy efficiency programs, at the customer's expense, that have produced measured and verified results within the prior five years. Such certification shall be consistent with industry standards for similar customers and meet other regulatory criteria in § 56-585.1 A 5 c that the commission reasonably deems appropriate.
