   Minimum Charges


    The minimum monthly charge under the above rates shall be the monthly customer charge where 15 kVA or less of transformer capacity is required.  For residential customers requiring more than 15 kVA of transformer capacity, the minimum monthly charge shall be $22.00 for 25 kVA, $31.38 for 37.5 kVA, and $40.75 for 50 kVA.  The minimum monthly charge for small commercial accounts will be $23.00, $32.38, and $41.75, respectively. If you don't know your minimum monthly charge, please contact our office for that information.


   Power Cost Adjustment


    In 2002, due to the increased costs of purchasing power, the Board of Trustees implemented a Power Cost Adjustment (PCA).  The PCA is used only for the purpose of recovering the cost of power purchased from the cooperative's power supplier which exceeds or is less than 7 cents per kWh. 


     The PCA factor varies each month, depending on the average cost of power purchased that month, and the kilowatt hours used by the customer.  For your reference, this factor is printed monthly in the Kansas Country Living magazine.  The PCA is calculated by our billing department and printed on your bill.



Cooperative By-Laws


Caney Valley's By-Laws were first set up by the original Board of Trustees.  They have been revised from time to time by majority vote of the members at

 annual meetings.
