(b) Posting Requirements and Bid Periods for Standard Releases Subject

to Bidding. The Capacity Release timeline is applicable to all

parties involved in the Capacity Release process; however, it is

only applicable if 1) all information provided by the parties to the

transaction is valid and the Replacement Customer has been

determined to be creditworthy before the capacity release bid is

tendered and 2) there are no special terms or conditions of the

release. Algonquin shall post offers and bids, including

prearranged deals, upon receipt; provided, however, offers and bids

must be complete before posting. Only posted offers and bids will

be available electronically. If a Releasing Customer requests a

later posting time, Algonquin shall support such request insofar as

it comports with the standard timeline set forth in this Section

14.4(b). The term "Bid Period" shall mean the period during which

bids may be submitted, commencing upon the posting of Releasing

Customer's Notice and ending at the time specified below.
