POWER PLANT ECONOMICS 545 One important group of riders deals with off-peak rates. These are special rates for energy that is to be used during certain designated low- load hours when normally idle generating capacity may be used econom ically to provide such energy. The particular periods designated as off-peak hours vary with different localities and types of load area but usually include the early-morning hours (midnight to 7 a.m.) and pos sibly mid-morning or mid-afternoon hours as well. Other common riders include the following: extension rider, covering special charges where customers are located some distance from existing lines; emergency or auxiliary rider, covering stand-by source of power for customers who normally generate privately; temporary service rider, covering short-time service. These are but a few samples to illustrate what riders are. For a more complete listing, consult the business office of your local utility

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
