2.                 “Contract Demand” means the maximum kW / kVA for the supply of which the Board undertakes to provide facilities from time to time. 

3.                 “Connected Load” means the sum of the rated capacity of all the energy consuming devices duly wired and connected to the power supply system on the consumer's premises, excluding standby devices connected through change over switch.   

4.                 “Billing Demand”

A)     As applicable to all consumers, except seasonal Consumers, means the demand used for billing purposes and computed as the highest of the following:

1) Actual establishment demand, during the period 0600 hrs to 2200 hrs.

2)                  75 % of the highest billing demand during preceding 11 months.

3)                 50 % of the Contract Demand as defined above.

NOTE:

(i)     Demand registered during the period 0600 to 2200 Hrs. will only be considered for determination of the Billing demand during preceding 11 months.

(ii)   For the purpose of clause 2 of the definition above, the limit will be the Contract Demand.

(iii)            In case of change in Contract Demand, the period specified in Clause (b) above will be reckoned from the month following the month in which the change of Contract Demand takes place.

B)   As exclusively applicable to seasonal Consumers, means the demand used for billing purposes and computed as the highest of the following:

(I)                For the declared season:

1)                  Actual establishment demand, during the period 0600 hrs to 2200 hrs.

2)                  75 % of the Contract Demand.

e)     For availing the said concession of development Period, the consumer will apply to the Board’s concerned Chief Engineer, within three years from the date he has become eligible for the same, i. e. within three years from the date of commencing production on commercial basis.

Measurement of Maximum Demand: The maximum demand in kVA for billing would be measured by providing Trivector meter or by providing kilowatt-hour (KWH) meter with Kilo-Watt Maximum Demand (KW) Indicator and Reactive Kilo-Volt-Ampere-Hour (RKVAH) Meter. In the latter case the Maximum Demand in KW shall be converted to the Maximum Demand in KVA for billing by dividing the Kilo-Watt Maximum Demand recorded by the average power factor determined from the Kilo-Watt-Hour (KWH) and Reactive Kilo-Volt-Ampere -Hour. (RKVAH) meter readings. In cases where the RKVAH meter is not provided the power factor assessed as defined under Condition 20 (a)(vi) of the Board's Conditions and Miscellaneous Charges for supply of electrical energy, would be utilised.
