"Slice of the System" Product
Applicable Interest Rates for Delinquent Bills and Annual True-Up Adjustment


(updated on November 2, 2011)

 
Interest Rate for Computing Late Payment Charges
For Slice Expedited and Regular Bills

Note: The interest rate information contained in the tables in this website were discontinued as of November 2, 2011. The interest rate information was used for calculating late payment charges for the Subscription Slice Expedited and Regular Bills, and for calculating interest charges or credits that were added to the annual Subscription Slice True-Up Adjustment Charge or Credit. Because the Subscription Slice and Block Power Sales Agreement expired on September 30, 2011, there is no longer a need to post this information for the Subscription Slice bills and Subscription Slice True-Up Adjustment.

The applicable interest rate for computing late payment charges on delinquent Slice Expedited and Regular Bills is the Prime Rate for Large Banks (the base rate on corporate loans posted by at least 75% of the nation's 30 largest Banks) as reported in the Wall Street Journal on the first day of the month in which the late payment is received, plus 4 percent. See section 10(a)(2) of the Block and Slice Power Sales Agreement (Block/Slice PSA) for more details on calculating late payment charges for Expedited Bills. See section 10(b)(2) for more details on calculating late payment charges for Regular Bills.
