SECTION 1.4 ECONOMIC INTERRUPTION ACCOUNTING
1.4.1 Base Economic Interruption Hours. For the purpose of determining the accrued duration of Base Economic Interruption hours (as indicated in section D of the IP Product Agreement), designated Reliability Interruption hours will be considered Base Economic Interruption hours (irrespective of the hours in which the Reliability Interruption is designated) until the maximum total duration of Base Economic Interruptions has been reached for the TVA fiscal year.
1.4.2 Rounding. For the purpose of determining accrued Interruption hours, Interruptions with durations that are not multiples of one whole hour will be rounded up to the next whole hour duration.
1.4.3 Daily Interruptions. For the purpose of determining the maximum daily Economic Interruptions
a designated Reliability Interruption will be considered an Economic Interruption (irrespective of the hours in which the Reliability Interruption is designated) if no Economic Interruption has been designated that day,
if a designated Reliability Interruption spans 0000 hours CPT, a Reliability Interruption will be deemed to have occurred on the day commencing from 0000 hours CPT.
1.4.4 Test Interruptions. Notwithstanding anything in the IP Product Agreement which may be construed to the contrary, Test Interruption hours will not be counted toward any Economic Interruption hours and are not deemed to be Reliability Interruptions.
SECTION 1.5 ADJUSTMENTS TO PROTECTED DEMAND
1.5.1 Performance Factor. For each Interruption, TVA will calculate a Performance Factor as follows:
Average Noncompliant Load is the average amount by which Companys 5-Minute Metered Demand during an Interruption exceeds the applicable Protected Demand.
Protected Demand is the applicable Protected Demand for the Interruption period. However, if the applicable Protected Demand is 0 kW, the Protected Demand used in this calculation will be 1 kW.
1.5.2 Reliability Only Option. If the IP Product Agreement provides for IP5, TVA may increase Companys Protected Demand upon at least 30 days notice if Companys response to an Interruption (1) results in a Performance Factor less than 97 percent or (2) contains more than six 5-Minute Non-Compliant Intervals. In the event of an adjustment by TVA under this subsection, Companys Protected Demand will become the average 5-Minute Metered Demand during 5-Minute Non-Compliant Intervals. The adjusted Protected Demand will become effective on the date stated in TVAs notice.
Page 4 of 14
1.5.3 Reliability+Economic Option. If the IP Product Agreement provides for IP30, TVA may increase Companys Protected Demand upon at least 30 days notice if Company achieves a Performance Factor of less than 97 percent in any two Interruptions in any consecutive 12-month period. In the event of an adjustment by TVA under this subsection, Companys Protected Demand will become the average 5-Minute Metered Demand during 5-Minute Non-Compliant Intervals. The adjusted Protected Demand will become effective on the date stated in TVAs notice.
1.5.4 Reinstatement. Following any adjustment of Protected Demand by TVA in accordance with subsection 1.5.2 or 1.5.3, Companys Protected Demand that applied prior to TVAs adjustment may be reinstated by TVA if Company demonstrates that it can achieve a 100 percent Performance Factor (based on the Protected Demand prior to TVAs adjustment) during an Interruption. Company may request TVA to perform a Test Interruption and TVA will perform that Test Interruption at its sole discretion. When Company has demonstrated a Performance Factor equal to 100 percent (based on the Protected Demand prior to TVAs adjustment) in a subsequent month, TVA will adjust Companys Protected Demand back to the previous level upon 30 days notice to Company.

ARTICLE 2: CREDITS AND CHARGES
SECTION 2.1 - APPLICATION OF CREDITS AND CHARGES
TVA will apply all credits and charges provided for under this IP Product to the monthly power bill for Companys electric service at the Plant/Facility Site identified in section B of the IP Product Agreement.
SECTION 2.2 - DEMAND CREDITS
Demand Credits to be applied to Companys power bill will be determined in accordance with the formula below that produces the highest credit:
Demand Credit ($) = DCA x Monthly Average Interruptible Demand
Demand Credit ($) = DCA x Event Specific Interruptible Demand Reduction
DCA is the applicable demand credit amount in the Schedule of Credits and Charges.
Monthly Average Interruptible Demand is the average 30-Minute Interruptible Demand during Peak Hours in the calendar month, excluding days on which any Interruption is in effect and any outage days provided under section 5.1.
Event Specific Interruptible Demand Reduction is Companys power demand reduction measured as (1) the highest 30-Minute Metered Demand, excluding any Excess Demand, established during the four full 30-Minute Clock-intervals immediately preceding the time TVA provides notice of any Interruption, minus (2) the higher of (i) the applicable Protected Demand or (ii) the highest 30-Minute Metered Demand during the Interruption period.
Page 6 of 14
SECTION 2.3 - ENERGY CREDITS
If Companys IP Product Agreement provides for IP30, the energy credit to be applied to Companys power bill for each Interruption will be calculated as follows:
i is each 5-minute Clock-interval during an Interruption when Companys 5-Minute Metered Demand is less than Baseline.
n is an Interruption period.
Demand is Companys 5-Minute Metered Demand.
Baseline is the highest 30-Minute Metered Demand, minus any Excess Demand, established during the four full 30-Minute Clock-intervals immediately preceding the time TVA provides notice of any Interruption.
ECA is the applicable energy credit amount in the Schedule of Credits and Charges.
Heat Rate is the applicable heat rate amount in the Schedule of Credits and Charges.
SECTION 2.4 - ENERGY UNDERPERFORMANCE CHARGES
For any Interruption in which Company does not achieve a Performance Factor equal to 100 percent, a charge will be applied to Companys power bill, and the charge will be calculated as follows:
i is each 5-Minute Non-Compliant Interval.
n is an Interruption period.
Metered Demand is the 5-Minute Metered Demand.
Protected Demand is the Protected Demand.
UP multiplier is the applicable Underperformance Charge amount in the Schedule of Credits and Charges.
Page 7 of 14
SECTION 2.5 - DEMAND UNDERPERFORMANCE CHARGES
If Companys IP Product Agreement provides for IP5, for any Interruption (not applicable to functional test) in which Company does not achieve a Performance Factor equal to 100 percent, a charge will be applied to Companys power bill, and the charge will be calculated as follows:
For any Interruption with a Performance Factor greater than or equal to 97 percent:
Charge ($) = 2 x DCA x max underperformance
For any Interruption with a Performance Factor less than 97 percent:
Charge ($) = (2 x DCA x max underperformance)+(DCA x initial underperformance)
DCA is the applicable demand credit amount in the Schedule of Credits and Charges. This is the same amount as in section 2.2.
max underperformance is the highest difference between the 30-Minute Metered Demand and Protected Demand among all 30-Minute Non-Compliant Intervals.
initial underperformance is the difference between the 5-Minute Metered Demand and Protected Demand during the first 5-Minute Clock-interval of an Interruption if that interval is a Non-Compliant Interval.
SECTION 2.6 - ADMINISTRATIVE COST CHARGES
To help recover administrative and other costs of making the IP Product available, Company will be charged an administrative cost charge. The amount of such charge is provided in the Schedule of Credits and Charges.
SECTION 2.7 - CONTRACT DEMAND
For the purposes of calculating power and energy charges under the Rate Schedule, during all full 30-Minute periods of an Interruption, any applicable Contract Demand under the Power Contract will be deemed to be the Protected Demand. Any applicable Rate Schedule excess charges will apply.
SECTION 2.8 - DEMAND RATCHET
The Demand Ratchet will be calculated using the sum of (i) the Protected Demand and (ii) the highest applicable Excess Demand established during the preceding 12 months instead of the applicable Contract Demand. The Demand Ratchet as so calculated will in no case exceed the amount of the applicable Protected Demand.

ARTICLE 4: ADMINISTRATION AND ADJUSTMENTS
SECTION 4.1 - NOTICES
4.1.1 Notices to Company. Any notice required by TVA under the IP Product Agreement will be deemed properly given if posted on the Product Website, e-mailed to one or more designated Company contacts, or sent in writing to the address specified as Companys Plant/Facility Site in the IP Product Agreement.
4.1.2 Notices to TVA. Notices of IP Product Agreement termination, IP Product Agreement Interruption Phone Number changes, and changes to e-mail addresses for IP Product notices will be deemed properly given if delivered by e-mail to any designated TVA customer service field representative or through an applicable contact avenue identified on the Product Website. TVA may require an authorized representative of Company to submit such notices using a TVA specified form.
4.1.3 Active e-mail addresses. Company must, at all times, designate at least one active e-mail address for notices.
SECTION 4.2 - ADJUSTMENT
4.2.1 Guidelines. Effective on October 1 of any year, Article 5 below may be changed or adjusted by TVA upon 60 days notice to Company; provided, however, that no such change or adjustment will reduce the monthly or yearly outage day omission limits under section 5.1.
4.2.2 Schedule of Credits and Charges. Effective on October 1 of any year, and upon not less than 90 days notice to Company, TVA may modify, change, replace, or adjust the Schedule of Credits and Charges; provided however, adjustments under this subsection will be in accordance with subsection 4.2.5 below. Prior to becoming effective, TVA will share with Company the rolling term IP Product valuation curve methodology and any changes in the Schedule of Credits and Charges. Further TVA will not change or adjust the DCA established on October 1, 2015 (FY 16 DCA), until such time as TVA determines that the value produced by the methodology used by TVA to establish the DCA exceeds the FY16 DCA.
4.2.3 Seasonal Periods. Effective on October 1 of any year, and upon not less than 60 days notice to Company, TVA may modify or change the months of the Summer Period, Winter Period, and Transition Period.
4.2.4 Economic Interruption Hours. Effective on October 1 of any year, and upon not less than 60 days notice to Company, TVA may change the designated hours for Economic Interruptions specified in section D of the IP Product Agreement; provided, however, that no such adjustment will increase the total daily duration of the designated hours during which Economic Interruptions may occur.
4.2.5 OBC Component of DCA. It is recognized that one component in the methodology used by TVA in establishing the DCA is the economic carrying cost of a combustion turbine plant (CT Plant). It is further recognized that the overnight build cost of a CT Plant (OBC) is part of this component. In establishing the DCA for participants in the IP Product that select a rolling term, the OBC that is used in determining the economic carrying cost of a CT Plant will not be revised unless the most recent projection of OBC varies by more than
Page 10 of 14
5% from the then-effective OBC for the rolling term IP Product (Re-price Trigger). Effective on the first October that occurs at least five years after the date of the Re-Price Trigger, the updated values for the economic carrying cost of a CT Plant will replace all future values for that component when establishing the DCA.
SECTION 4.3 - SPECIAL OFFERS
From time to time, TVA may advertise special offers or additional features under the IP Product (such as buy-throughs or offers to purchase additional Economic Interruption hours). Any additional Economic Interruption hours purchased by TVA under any special offer will be excluded under subsection 1.4.1 above in the event of a Reliability Interruption.
SECTION 4.4 - POWER SYSTEM INFORMATION
For Companys convenience, TVA may allow Company access to TVA power system information and power system forecasts. All such information is deemed to be proprietary information (Proprietary Information) and Companys obligations with respect to such Proprietary Information provided during Companys participation in the IP Product will survive the termination or expiration of the IP Product Agreement.
As a condition of participation in the IP Product and in consideration of TVAs making Proprietary Information available to Company, (i) Company agrees not to divulge Proprietary Information to third parties without the written consent of TVA, and (ii) Company further agrees not to use the Proprietary Information disclosed to it by TVA for any purpose other than those set forth in this agreement. Nothing in this paragraph will prevent Company from making disclosures to other parties that are required by law; provided, Company must endeavor to secure the agreement of such other party to maintain the information in confidence. In the event that Company is unable to secure such agreement, Company must notify TVA with reasonable promptness so that TVA may join Company in the pursuit of such an agreement of confidence, or take any other action it deems appropriate.
Nothing in this section 4.4 restricts or limits TVAs right to execute Interruptions and TVA may execute Interruptions without regard to whether or not a potential Interruption has been projected. Further, the failure or inability for any reason of Company to access information about a potential Interruption, shall not alter Companys obligation to comply with any Interruption.
TVA makes no statement, representation, claim, guarantee, assurance, or warranty of any kind whatsoever, including, but not limited to, representations or warranties, express or implied, of merchantability, fitness for a particular use or purpose, accuracy, or completeness, of any estimates, information, service, or equipment furnished or made available to Company through the IP Product. Company hereby waives, and releases the United States of America, TVA, and their directors, officers, agents, and employees from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, including, without limitation, consequential damages, arising out of or in any way connected with any estimates, information, service, or equipment furnished or made available under this section.
