ENH Power, LLC
Terms of Service
(Version No. 15)
Last Updated: 6/26/13
Purchase of Electric Generation Service. ENH Power agrees to sell and you agree to buy, your full requirements for electric generation service (measured in kilowatt hours) at the price and on the terms and conditions specified in this agreement (the “Supply Contract”) throughout the term of this Supply Contract. The purchase and sale of energy hereunder shall commence at 00:00:01 EST on the first day that ENH Power provides physical delivery to your facilities and shall end at 24:00:00 EST on the last day of the term.
1. Price Structures. For greater clarity, all rates shown on our website and promotional materials have been rounded to the nearest hundredth of a cent. You will be billed a fixed rate in cents per kilowatt hour (“kWh”) set forth in your Confirmation Letter for your actual consumption of electricity. The Price Structures do not include any applicable taxes. In addition, you are responsible for paying your local utility distribution and transmission charges as well as any other applicable charges. Choosing ENH Power as your electricity supplier does not guarantee savings when compared to other Competitive Electricity Providers or the current Default Service Offer.
2. Duration and kind of contract. This Supply Contract is a contract for your supply of electric generation service. The term of this Supply Contract is set forth in your Confirmation Letter. The email address that you provided us at the time of enrollment will be the primary method of contacting you for notices, renewals and disclosure information about your account. For new customers, service shall commence on the next meter read date after the Utility processes your enrollment with ENH Power. Service commencement lead-time may vary depending on utility enrollment requirements, your specific meter-reading schedule, time-of-year pricing, and market conditions. For renewal customers, service shall continue uninterrupted. This Supply Contract will renew automatically until terminated by you or ENH Power per the Termination Provisions set forth below. At least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the term of service of your Supply Contract, ENH Power will email you a new Confirmation Letter for the renewal period, which sets forth the electricity price and term that will apply to the renewal period. You will have ten (10) days from receipt of a new Confirmation Letter to decline the auto renewal notice and terminate the Supply Contract effective at the end of the then-current term. If you do not notify ENH Power within ten (10) days of such intent to decline the auto renewal, then the auto renewal period shall be in effect through the term stated in the renewal Confirmation Letter. You have the right under New Hampshire law to change electricity suppliers subject to the terms of this Supply Contract.
3. Termination Provisions. ENH Power may terminate this Supply Contract in the event of default as set forth in Section 4. ENH Power may terminate this Supply Contract for any other reason upon not less than thirty (30) days written notice to you, with such termination to be effective at the end of the current Supply Contract. You may terminate this Supply Contract by written notice to ENH Power delivered no later than ten (10) days from your receipt of a renewal Confirmation Letter from ENH Power, with such termination to be effective at the end of the current Supply Contract. Upon termination, service will be discontinued on the next utility meter read date for your account that is at least thirty (30) days after the notice of termination. If you terminate the Supply Contract prior to the end of the term in effect, you may be subject to a “Cost Recovery Fee” outlined in Section 8.
4. Payment of Bills. The cost of your electric generation service will be included on your bill from the Utility (PSNH, Unitil, Liberty Utilities or NH Electric Co-Op), and is due and payable when your Utility bill is due and payable. You agree to accept the measurements as determined by the Utility for purposes of accounting for the electric power supplied under this Supply contract. You will be billed additional charges, including charges to transmit and distribute the electricity to you, from the Utility consistent with its filed tariffs. ENH Power reserves the right to change billing methods. When the Utility issues you a consolidated bill that includes charges for electric generation service supplied by ENH Power, all invoiced balances not paid in full by the due date are subject to the Utility’s late payment policies and procedures, including assessment by the Utility of late payment fees and interest. I agree to allow the utility to share my payment information for the purpose of consolidated billing.
According to the NHPUC Code of Administrative Rules, in the event you default in your payment or other obligations under this Supply Contract, ENH POWER has the right to cancel this Supply Contract, at which time you will automatically be transferred to the Utility’s Standard Offer rate plan. You will remain responsible for balances owed to ENH Power for generation service and ENH Power’s actual out-of-pocket expenses incurred in enforcing its rights under this Supply Contract, including reasonable attorney fees and actual court costs. If at any time you enter into a payment plan with the Utility while you have an outstanding balance owed to ENH Power, you must notify ENH Power within fifteen (15) days. Outstanding balances owed to ENH Power may not be accounted for by the Utility payment plan, may appear as a separate balance on your bill, and will remain your responsibility.
5. Credit Reporting. When you first apply for service and during the term of the Supply Contract with ENH Power we may contact a credit reporting agency to obtain utility credit history and credit score. Once enrolled, ENH Power reserves the right to report your payment history to a credit reporting agency.
6. Customer Deposits. ENH Power does not require a customer deposit to enroll.
7. Warranty Disclaimer; Damages; Force Majeure.
ALL ELECTRIC GENERATION SERVICE IS PROVIDED BY ENH Power ON AN “AS IS” BASIS. ENH Power MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE ELECTRIC GENERATION SERVICE PROVIDED THEREBY. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, ENH Power DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT AND TITLE WITH RESPECT TO THE ELECTRIC GENERATION SERVICE PROVIDED THEREBY.
You agree that ENH Power shall not be liable for any damages or claims for matters within the control of the Utility or the ISO-New England controlled electricity grid, which include maintenance of electric lines and systems, service interruptions, loss or termination of service, deterioration of electric services, meter readings or injury to persons or damage to property caused by the delivery or supply of electricity. ENH Power shall not be responsible for any failure to commence or terminate electric generation service on the date specified due to any failure or delay in enrolling you with the Utility. ENH Power’s liability shall be limited to direct actual damages only, which will not exceed the amount of your single largest monthly invoice during the preceding 12 months. In no event shall ENH Power be liable for any punitive, incidental, consequential, exemplary, indirect, third-party claims or other damages whether based on contract, warranty, tort, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, or for lost profits arising from any breach or nonperformance of this Supply Contract. ENH Power will make commercially reasonable efforts to supply electricity but does not guarantee a continuous supply of electricity. Customer acknowledges that certain causes and events outside of ENH Power’s control (Force Majeure events) may result in interruptions in service and ENH Power shall not be liable for any such interruptions. ENH Power does not generate electricity nor does it transmit or distribute electricity. Therefore, Customer agrees that ENH Power shall not be liable for damages caused by electricity or Force Majeure events, including acts of God, acts of any governmental authority, acts of terrorists or enemies of the state, accidents, strikes or lock outs, labor troubles, required maintenance work, inability to access the Utility’s system, non-performance by the Utility, or any cause beyond ENH Power’s control.
8. Charges, Fees and Penalties. You will be charged for electric generation service supplied at the contract rate. No additional fees will be assessed to you by ENH Power unless you choose to cancel this Supply Contract prior to its renewal date. You understand and agree that in order for ENH Power to offer and fulfill its fixed rate obligation to you, it has to purchase electric power in advance of usage in amounts needed to cover the full term of this Supply Contract. If you cancel this Supply Contract early, you will be responsible for paying a “Cost Recovery Fee” of $100.00 and any cost associated with the cost of selling the unused portion of your electricity to others as well as estimated lost revenue that ENH Power may incur from such a sale. In the event you default on your payment or other obligations under this Supply Contract, ENH Power has the right to cancel this Supply Contract upon thirty (30) days written notice. ENH Power reserves the right to charge interest on any outstanding balances more that thirty (30) days overdue at the Utility’s maximum allowed default interest rate. You are responsible for settlement of any balances for generation of service, late payment or interest charges owed to your Utility as per paragraph 3 of this agreement.
In the event there is a change (including a change in interpretation) in law, regulation, rule, ordinance, order, directive, filed tariff, decision, writ, judgment or decree by a governmental authority (including the New Hampshire PUC or ISO-NE), including, without limitation, changes in Utility tariffs and ISO-NE rules, including those changes affecting fees, costs, or charges imposed by ISO-NE or the New Hampshire PUC, changes in market rules, changes in load profiles or changes in nodal and zonal definitions, and such change results in ENH Power incurring additional costs and expenses in providing your electricity service, these additional costs and expenses shall be your responsibility and they will be assessed in your monthly bill as a pass-through charge. We may charge you up to $25 for any returned check.
9. Estimated Bills. In the event the Utility is unable to read your electric meter, the Utility will estimate your usage and your charges will be calculated accordingly and adjusted on a future bill.
ENH Power reserves the right to use third party billing services in performance of the Terms and Conditions of this Supply Agreement.
