Customers eligible for the Small Business Program will consume an average of 40,000 kWh or less per month during July and August. The Program moved away from using a demand eligibility requirement due to the variations in rate and billing structures.
If a customer has multiple meters at a single site, the combined monthly average for all meters at the site must be 40,000 kWh or below in July and August to qualify for the Small Business Program incentives.
New for 2017, franchise operators with 9 or less sites can participate in the Small Business Program.
Agriculture, Schools and Government (AgSG) customers will not be eligible for the Small Business Program in 2017. Facilities which include both a church and school are considered an AgSG customer and therefore are not eligible for the Small Business Program.
