RV Park Meter Policy

AEP TEXAS POLICY REGARDING CONVERSION OF MASTER-METERED RV PARKS TO INDIVIDUALLY METERED SERVICE

At the request of the Park owner, master-metered service will be converted to individually metered service. The following provisions will apply:

A. PAYMENT AND SIGNING OF THE CIAC AGREEMENT

Converting the Park’s master-metered service to individually metered spaces has a significant cost due to the necessary modifications (construction requirement).

AEP Texas has invested in facilities to provide service to the Park through the existing master meter(s). Termination of master metered points of delivery and converting the Park into individually metered spaces will require AEP Texas to invest considerably more in its distribution system to serve load that it is already serving through the master meter. Since the termination of the master meter(s) would result in no new load being served by AEP Texas, the Park owner is responsible for 100% of the cost. The payment due is referred to as a Contribution in Aid to Construction (CIAC), pursuant to AEP Texas Commission approved Tariff 6.1.2.2.1 Facilities Extension Schedule.

AEP Texas will provide a CIAC Agreement to the Park owner which must be signed by the Park owner and AEP Texas. The Agreement provides the details for the conversion based on the Park owner’s request, including the total cost of the project (a one-time payment to AEP Texas), and the type of service to be installed which includes poles/transformers, etc. Facilities installed by AEP Texas will remain the property of AEP Texas. The Park owner must provide easements where needed. The cost provided in this Agreement will be valid for 90 days. AEP Texas will not begin construction/ installation of the Facilities until full payment of the CIAC has been received.

B. CONVERSION PROCESS

Due to construction, electrical system operation, right of way and safety issues, conversion of master-metered lots will not be made on an individual lot basis. Individually metered service to each space will be provided only through the termination of an entire existing master metered point of delivery and simultaneous conversion of all of the spaces to individually metered services.

C. OBTAINING SERVICE FOR INDIVIDUALLY METERED SPACES

The Park owner will be responsible for contacting AEP Texas for the issuance of an ESI ID number for each individual meter location. Each tenant will then need to contact a REP of their choice and make arrangements to have the meter installed and service connected for their respective ESI ID. Meter installations will not be scheduled until AEP Texas has received a move-in order from selected REP and an electrical inspection permit release has been received, where required.
