The times the Cooperative will most likely go into load control or “exposure periods” are:
    • A. For service used beginning at 12:00 midnight April 30 and ending at 12:00 midnight September 30, the hours of greatest exposure to load control are the hours between 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
    • B. Service used beginning at 12:00 midnight September 30 and ending at 12:00 midnight April 30, the hours of greatest exposure to load control are the hours between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., plus 2:00 p.m. through 9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The exposure periods are based upon the times the Cooperative’s power supplier has historically established its monthly system peak. The Cooperative does not, however, warrant that all control periods will be within the exposure periods outlined above.
