Power Factor Adjustment:

The consumer agrees to maintain unity power factor as practicable.

If service is provided at the utility's primary line voltage, the delivery point shall be the point of attachment of the utility's primary line to the consumer's transformer structure unless otherwise specified in the contract for service. All wiring, pole lines and other electric equipment (except metering equipment) on the load side of the delivery point shall be owned and maintained by the consumer.
