Energy Cost Adjustment

Winterset Municipal Utilities may, at its discretion, implement an energy cost adjustment to compensate Winterset Municipal Utilities for variations in the cost of fuel for the generating plant or for purchased power. At the time the adjustment is implemented, the calculation used to arrive at the adjustment will be developed, and the adjustment will be applied to all kWh billed by Winterset Municipal Utilities.

Power Supply Adjustment Factor
Sales under all rate schedules are subject to the Power Supply Adjustment Factor (PSAF). Each month a PSAF surcharge or credit will be calculated. The PSAF will be applied to all metered kWh sales and billed to consumers for that month. The PSAF equals the total purchase and power production costs for the month divided by the metered kWh sales for the month, less the base power supply cost of $.03802/kWh.
