We see lots of different approaches to this, depending on the datacenter operator:
1. Customer pays for power overage at an agreed to rate that is usually the same as their committed rate (but could be more). This could be based on a:
* Per KW consumed
* Per KWh consumed
* Per Amp consumed
1. Customer is notified that they are over their committed draw, and asked to increase their commitment. Could be:
* After a few months of repeated overages
1. Nothing happens (operator is not monitoring)

What kind of typical overage costs have you seen when a customer/you use more than you've committed to?
I'm especially interested in datacenter power situations, where maybe you sign up for 5kw or 500kw and use more than that in a given month. Is it billed at the same rate? Is it billed at a higher rate? What's the % increase of the higher rate versus the regular rate?
