18. BILLING AND PAYMENT (Continued)

 

(d) Suspension or Termination for Nonpayment. If Buyer under any Rate Schedule becomes

delinquent by ten (10) days in the payment of any invoice, then such Buyer shall

provide adequate assurance of payment to Operator within ten (10) days of the date of

Operator's written notice of such delinquency. If Buyer does not, within such ten

(10) day period, pay the invoice together with accrued interest, or does not provide

adequate assurance of payment in accordance with the provisions of Section 6(d)

(Operating Conditions) of the General Terms and Conditions, Operator may immediately

suspend service to Buyer upon notice to Buyer. If the invoice is not paid in full

within thirty (30) days after its due date and Buyer has not provided adequate

assurance of payment, Operator, in addition to any other remedies it may have, may

terminate the Service Agreement, effective after ten (10) days notice to Buyer. Such

termination, however, will not be effectuated if Buyer pays all amounts due Operator

and, if required by Operator, provides adequate assurance of payment for future

service within such 10-day period. Termination of the Service Agreement shall not

excuse payments of the amounts then due or any other existing obligation of Buyer

including obligations to make future payments. Operator shall not be entitled to

suspend service or terminate Buyer's Service Agreement pending resolution of an

invoice disputed in good faith by Buyer if Buyer complies with the provisions of

Section 18(b)(4) above.
