UBICACIÓN: El superbarrio Neartown / Montrose está situado en el centro oeste de Houston. El súper vecindario está aproximadamente limitado por la autopista 59 al sur, Allen Parkway al norte, Taft Street, Bagby Street y Main Street al este, y South Shepherd Drive al oeste. Neartown / Montrose se encuentra en el Distrito C del Consejo.

DESCRIPCIÓN E HISTORIA DE LA COMUNIDAD:  Neartown incluye algunos de los barrios más antiguos e históricos de Houston y es el hogar de 6 Distritos Históricos designados por Houston. Neartown es una de las comunidades más eclécticas de Houston. La zona tiene un ambiente bohemio muy distintivo donde se reúnen personas de diversos orígenes. La comunidad tiene una historia de atraer a una clase creativa de espíritu libre. La disponibilidad de viviendas asequibles y la proximidad a los lugares de actuación y entretenimiento hicieron de la zona un lugar privilegiado para artistas y músicos. Las comunidades de gays, lesbianas y transexuales de Houston también han adoptado Neartown como barrio de destino. Estos grupos se han unido para crear una experiencia urbana verdaderamente única.

All those customers who have contracted an electrical power of more than 15 kilowatts or who have a high voltage installation will have a maximeter in their homes. This is installed next to the electricity meter and is capable of measuring both the electrical power at intervals and the maximum power demanded by the customer.

The maximeter is a measuring instrument whose main characteristic is that it does not interrupt the electricity supply even if the contracted power has been exceeded. Many buildings and even homes require an uninterruptible supply, such as hospitals, buildings with elevators or even homes where one of the members has special medical needs.

All those customers, generally large and medium-sized companies, that contract a power higher than 15 kilowatts, will directly have a maximeter in their electrical installation, so they will not have to request this measuring device from the supplier, as it will be provided for them.

When you demand more power from an electrical installation than its limits, the circuit breaker goes off and you are left without electricity. This does not happen where there is a maximeter, the device that allows you to exceed the power. Why does this exception exist?

But why did the ICP do that to you? Fundamentally for your own safety.  Your house has a contracted power that marks the limit of kW that can be demanded at the same time. That is why if you turn on more and more electrical appliances (washing machine + electric oven + air conditioning + vacuum cleaner…), kW are added and there comes a time when the ICP jumps.

The maximeter works as follows: it takes note of the power demanded and does it in blocks of 15 minutes.  For each of these blocks, it calculates the average power required in this period of time. At the end of the month, it keeps the maximum power that has been requested and records it.

This is because it is in high voltage or high power where the very nature of the installation (industries, factories, etc.) recommends being flexible with excess power. While in low voltage and powers lower than 15 kW what we find are mostly homes in which security is more important than the non-interruption of the supply.

The maximeter is a measuring device that registers the maximum power demanded by a supply point for subsequent billing. Below, we tell you how it works, what are its billing rules and its difference with the Power Control Switch (ICP).

Maximeters are installed next to the electricity meter and are necessary in all electrical installations with contracted power over 15 kW, in those that have contracted a 3.0A access tariff in low voltage or in high voltage supplies.

There are special cases in which dwellings or premises with an electrical power of less than 15 kW are fitted with a maximeter, although the normal practice in these cases is to have a Power Control Switch (P.C.B.I.).

The maximeter measures the power demanded by the user through intervals of 15 minutes, calculating in each of these periods the average power that has been required. In this way, the power that will be reflected in the electricity bill will be the highest of all the recorded averages.
