How will the capacity charge appear on my bill?

The minimum charge that appears on Low Voltage Maximum Demand bills is 30kw. Every additional kW you use above 30kW, during these times will incur a capacity charge. You may be able to reduce the electricity demand on your premises during these hours by:

  • using equipment at alternate hours
  • rescheduling tasks outside maximum demand periods
  • avoid large loads operating at the same time
  • using backup generators if possible
  • Or re-visiting your opening hours

The formula used to calculate your capacity charge is: The MIC x Capacity Charge Rate x Number of Days in the billing period = the capacity charge for that billing period.
