If the project experiences an outage longer than 3 hours, the demand charge must be based on daily demand pricing pro-rated from standard monthly rates.

Qualifying projects selected for participation must become operational within one year of selection or that capacity will be offered to at least one other qualifying project that participated in the solicitation.
