  2. Measurement of Demand and Kilowatt-hours Supplied.  Where two or more metering installations are provided on the customer’s premises, the demand in any thirty-minute period shall be determined by adding together the separate demands at each metering installation during such thirty-minute period except that:

    In case the demand at any metering installation is registered by an indicating or cumulative demand meter, the demand at such installation in each thirty-minute period of any month shall be assumed to be the same as the highest demand in any thirty-minute period of such month.  Where two or more metering installations are provided on the customer’s premises and are for the same customer, and if one or more installations qualified for rate 5 and one or more installations qualified for rate 9, then the metering installation readings shall be combined and billed at rate 9.

  3. The terms and conditions stated Sections 13.08.010 through 13.08.210 apply to this rate and service hereunder shall be subject thereto.
