PPAC - Purchase Power Adjustment Clause

The Village of Churchville is fortunate to have a Municipal Electric Department and a contract that allows us to purchase hydro power (the cheapest power available). There is a cap on the amount of hydro power that is available fore the Village to purchase. Any electric purchase over the cap is nuclear or fossil fuel power (supplemental power) and is much more expensive. The PPAC rate is the amount of our hydro and supplemental power purchases plus charges for transmitting the power, ancillary charges, loss factors and many other numerous “small” charges. In the winter months the electric demand is higher so we are forced to purchase more supplemental power which raises the PPAC like the energy rate, the consumption is multiplied by the PPAC. The Village of Churchville Electric is regulated by the Public Service Commission and they continually monitor our calculations and collection of these changes.
