    this varies a lot from place to place.
    there are many different power companies in the USA- huge corporations, government agencies, small co-ops, small private companies, and more.
    Seattle, for example, has a city owned electric utility that even owns its own dams, generating facilities, and resevoirs.
    Some places charge a demand charge, others dont.
    My private utility does not, below 50kw, for example. So my 3 phase power bill for the shop is pretty low, all the time, since they get their power from Bonneville Power dams, run by the Feds, on the Columbia River.
    The demand charges only kick in with bigger services, and I slide right in below that.
