You are correct-specifically, your zone's goal is 336 (our system is set to keep everything at whole numbers so that's why it's a bit off from the simple equation). That goal represents the number of people Elevate would need to take service in your area in order for the project to be financially viable. The goal itself is actually a percentage of all the premises DMEA serves with electricity within that entire zone. We evaluated the number of electric meters in each zone (removing places that would be ineligible, such as irrigation pumps and idle services) and then worked backwards using the total cost to build a fiber network in a specific zone and the number of customers need to support that network. Did I help? Or did that make it more unclear?
