GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(Continued)

 

10. BILLING AND PAYMENT

 

10.1 Unit of Measurement

 

The unit of measurement for the purpose of billing shall be one (1) dekatherm (Dth),

consisting of one million (1,000,000) British Thermal Units. The number of dekatherms

delivered shall be determined by multiplying the number of cubic feet of gas delivered,

measured on the measurement basis established by Section 7 of the General Terms and

Conditions, by the total heating value of such gas, in British Thermal Units per cubic

foot, as defined in Section 1 of the General Terms and Conditions and by dividing the

product by 1 million (1,000,000).

 

10.2 Monthly Bill

 

Pipeline shall bill Customer on or before the tenth of each month for services rendered

hereunder during the preceding month.

 

10.3 Access to Billing Data

 

Both Pipeline and Customer shall have the right to examine at reasonable times the

books, records, computer records, and charts of the other to the extent necessary to

verify the accuracy of any statement, charge or computation made under or pursuant to

any of the provisions hereof.

 

10.4 More Than One Customer

 

When two or more persons constitute Customer under one (1) service agreement, for

billing purposes as between such persons, and except as may otherwise be agreed, each

such person shall be charged for that proportion of the total monthly charge under each

rate schedule which service to such person under such rate schedule bears to total

service under such rate schedule, pursuant to such Service Agreement. Such

proportionate billing shall not affect the joint and several obligations of such

persons under such Service Agreement.

 

10.5 Payment

 

Customer shall pay Pipeline by check or electronic transfer of federal funds no later

than ten (10) days from the date of the bill as specified in Section 10.2, except when

such day is a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, in which case payment is due the

following business day (hereinafter called Due Date), for service provided during the

preceding month, and billed by Pipeline for said month according to the measurements,

computations and rates provided; provided, however, if Customer pays by check sent

directly to Pipeline's lockbox, it must be received by Pipeline one day prior to the

Due Date, and if Customer pays by check sent directly to Pipeline's Corporate Offices,

it must be received by Pipeline two days prior to the Due Date. If Customer pays by

electronic transfer, payment shall be considered to have been made on the date when

such payment is transferred by Customer to a bank account designated by Pipeline. All

payments shall be identified by invoice number and, if payment differs from invoiced

amount, shall include remittance detail except when the payment is made by electronic

funds transfer (EFT), in which case, the remittance detail is due within two Business

Days of the payment due date. Payments will be applied in accordance with

documentation provided by Customer.
