(b) (5) (x) Buyers shall cause, by whatever means necessary, the Interconnecting

operator of each point of receipt and each point of delivery designated

in any nomination or change in nomination submitted by Buyer to confirm

all such nominations or changes in nominations in accordance with the

time lines specified in Section 6(b)(6) and also to comply with NAESB

standard confirmation data sets.


Operator shall electronically on its EBB make available to Buyer on a

daily basis Buyer's imbalance status or information from which Buyer can

determine its imbalance status. Such daily electronic updates by

Operator shall be based upon the data available to Operator at that time,

and shall constitute notice to Buyer for purposes of the application of

imbalance penalties, as set forth in Section 12 (Penalties) of the

General Terms and Conditions and elsewhere in this Tariff. To avoid the

imbalance penalties described in this Tariff, Buyer shall eliminate

imbalances in its account as soon as possible but in no event later than

the last day of the Month in which such notice is received.
