Distributor’s identified employees shall have access to Customer’s premises at all reasonable times for the purpose of reading meters, testing, repairing, removing, or exchanging any or all equipment belonging to Distributor.

Bills will be rendered monthly and shall be paid at the office of Distributor or at other locations designated by Distributor. Failure to receive a bill will not release Customer from payment obligation. Should bills not be paid by the due date specified on the bill, Distributor may at any time thereafter, upon 5 days’ written notice to Customer, discontinue service. Bills paid after the due date specified on the bill may be subject to additional charges, not to exceed 5%. Should the due date of bill fall on a Sunday or holiday, the business day next following the due date will be held as a day of grace for delivery of payment. Remittances received by mail after the due date will not be subject to such additional charges if the incoming envelope bears United States Postal service date stamp of the due date or any date prior thereto. See Operational Policy 219 for additional information.
