```Thanks Paul, instead of two meters I created two utility rates and used a demand qual not a ratchet. All is working well now, thanks for your insight.

Joshua:

If I understand you correctly, you have a monthly demand charge plus a ratchet charge.  Yes, I have done this.

You need to define 2 electric meters.  The first meter incorporates the kW charge including TOU if this is in your rate.

For the second meter 0 the kW charge and customer service charges and just use that to set up a ratchet charge.

See attached documents.  ES-D are the rates for the two meters.  ES-E includes the monthly demand charges.  ES-F shows the ratchet charges.

Is it possible to use the actual building demand (kW) to separate the energy usage (kWh) into tiers based on a constant multiplied (kWh/kW) and yet still use a minimum ratcheted billing demand to calculate the demand charge?

So basically, I need to use two different demands to calculate my electric charge, is this possible?
