Notice of Proposed Self-Generation Rider

After the Winter Weather Event in February 2021, the Pioneer Electric Cooperative, Inc. (“Pioneer”) Board of Trustees has reviewed and authorized management to present the following Self-Generation Rider.

The proposed rider will be available to members taking service under Pioneer’s standard Large Power, Large Commercial and Industrial Service or Large Industrial Service tariffs.  It will apply when a formal “Energy Emergency Alert” is issued by the Southwest Power Pool under the NERC Reliability Standards affecting Pioneer and its members and resulting in a request by Pioneer to a member for voluntary load reductions by way of the member self-generating to fulfill all or part of its own energy needs (a single Energy Emergency Alert or multiple Energy Emergency Alerts issued over a period of time during an energy event shall be known as the “EEA Event”).  The member shall receive an energy credit equal to $0.10 per kWh applied to the member’s kWh usage reduced as a result of running self-generation during the EEA Event.  If approved, the Rider will be effective on August 25, 2021.

Please take notice that the Board of Trustees of Pioneer will meet on August 25, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. at the cooperative headquarters, 1850 W Oklahoma, in Ulysses, to discuss and vote on the adoption of the proposed Self-Generation Rider. This meeting is open to any member that wishes to attend. Members have the right under K.S.A. 66-104d (g) to request Kansas Corporation Commission review of any rate change.

If you have any questions please attend the meeting on August 25, 2021, or contact our office at 620-356-1211 or 1-800-794-9302. You may obtain a complete summary of the proposed rider at Pioneer Electric’s office or here.
