For monthly billings from January through the following December, the monthly Coincident Peak Billing Demand shall be the greater of:

For existing customers applying for the LMS Rate and not previously metered on an hourly basis, the Coincident Peak Billing Demand shall be based on estimates developed by the Cooperative.
