MEP shall apply payment per such supporting documentation. If

payment differs from the invoiced amount, remittance detail should be

provided with the payment except when payment is made by electronic

funds transfer in which case the remittance detail is due within two

(2) Business Days of the payment due date. Should Shipper fail to pay

any undisputed portion of any bill as herein provided when such

amount is due, interest on the unpaid portion of the bill shall

accrue at the maximum allowable interest permitted under the

Commission's Regulations. For any amount to be considered "disputed,"

Shipper must provide appropriate documentation supporting and

identifying the basis for the dispute. If Shipper fails to make

payment in accordance with this Section, MEP may, in addition to any

other remedy it may have under this Tariff or under commercial law:

(a) suspend deliveries or terminate service as provided in Sections

2.8 or 12.2 of these General Terms and Conditions; and (b) offset

such deficient payments against any payments, refunds or credits owed

by MEP to Shipper.




(a) The time limitation for notifying MEP of any

dispute relating to billing including disputes regarding allocations,

shall be six (6) Months from the date the bill is received with a

three (3) Month rebuttal period. This time period shall also apply to

any adjustments by MEP in billings. This standard shall not apply in

the case of deliberate omission or misrepresentation or mutual

mistake of fact.


(b) Any error discovered as a result of a timely claim

shall be corrected within thirty (30) days of the determination

thereof. Parties' other statutory or contractual rights shall not

otherwise be diminished by this standard. However, in no event will

any changes be made after twenty-four (24) Months from the date of

statements, billings or payment, based on actualized volumes, unless

the parties mutually agree.
