(a) Total Peaking shall apply the standard or criteria

for such determination specified by the Releasing

Customer, including the standard to be used for

breaking ties. Any standard or criteria so

specified must be objective, economic, not unduly

discriminatory, not contrary to applicable

no more than a ministerial function. The Releasing

claims, expenses, causes of action and/or damages

suffered or incurred by Total Peaking arising out of

or related to any determination of a "best bid"

pursuant to a standard specified, supplied, approved

or provided by Releasing Customer.


(b) In default of Releasing Customer specifying a bid

evaluation standard, Total Peaking shall determine

the bid or bids generating the highest net present

value, using a 10% discount factor, based on the

rate bid (reservation or demand component), the

applicable quantity(ies) and term or period bid
