SECTION 2. Term
This Agreement shall be effective for a period commencing on and including the Delivery Day of November 1, 2021 and expiring on and including the Delivery Day of March 31, 2036 (the "Primary Term"). Utility shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to extend the Agreement for one or more subsequent five (5) year terms (with each such period referred to as a "Rollover Term") by providing written notice to UGIES of its intent to extend the Agreement at
least one (1) year prior to the expiration of the Primary Term or any Rollover Term. If Utility elects to extend the Agreement for one or more Rollover Terms, the MDQ and all terms and conditions of service shall remain unchanged unless expressly agreed to by the Parties in writing; provided however, that the applicable Reservation Charge for the Rollover Term will be adjusted in accordance with Section 5.3 hereof.
SECTION 3. Character of Service
3.1 Delivery Obligation. UGIES shall sell and deliver and Utility shall have the
option to purchase and the right to receive Natural Gas on any day during the Primary Term and any Rollover Term. UGIES's obligation to deliver and Utility's obligation to receive Natural Gas shall be Firm for any Nomination quantity, up to the applicable MDQ. Service will be provided using UGIES's primary firm pipeline capacity, incremental peaking plant capacity, or a reasonably acceptable asset-backed substitute. Service will only be subject to interruption for reasons of Force Majeure.
3.2 Maximum Daily Quantity. The "Maximum Daily Quantity" or "MDQ" shall
mean the maximum quantity of Natural Gas that Utility may require UGIES to deliver on a Firm basis on any day during a Winter Season. The MDQ for each Winter Season during the Primary Term shall be 162,177 Dth per day.

entitled to receive and UGIES is obligated to deliver on a Firm basis during a Winter Season. The TWE for each Winter Season during the Primary Term shall be 1,268,780 Dth.
3.4 Authorized Overruns. If Utility wishes to overrun its MDQ or TWE on any
Delivery Day, it must request authorization from UGIES in advance. UGIES will authorize and permit such overruns if it reasonably determines that it is operationally feasible to do so. The Parties shall agree in advance on the Commodity Charge to apply to any Natural Gas delivered to Utility in excess of its MDQ or TWE.
3.5 Waiver of Delivery Obligation. On any Delivery Day, Utility shall maintain its
distribution facilities downstream of the Delivery Point(s) in a way that permits UGIES to deliver the Scheduled Quantities, otherwise UGIES shall be relieved of its obligation to deliver the Scheduled Quantities for the period and to the extent that Utility's distribution facilities do not permit such deliveries. Once Utility's distribution facilities have been corrected by Utility, UGIES shall use commercially reasonable efforts to supply the entire amount nominated by Utility for that Delivery Day. Any waiver of delivery obligations pursuant to this Section 3.5 shall not affect Utility's right to receive its TWE during any Winter Season.
SECTION 4. Nomination Procedure
Utility shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make a Daily Nomination for quantities up to the MDQ at any time during any Delivery Day including weekends and holidays. For any Delivery Day, the MDQ less any Day-Ahead Nominations (as described below), will be prorated based on the number of hours remaining in the Delivery Day. Nothing herein prevents
Utility from nominating quantities to be delivered on the next or subsequent Delivery Day as described below.
Utility shall have the right, but not the obligation, to make a Day-Ahead Nomination for quantities up to the MDQ on trading days defined by Intercontinental Exchange ("ICE"), for delivery on a subsequent ICE delivery day(s). Utility shall notify UGIES, either verbally or in writing, of the requested quantity by 9:30 a.m. ECT on the ICE trading day.
SECTION 5. Charges
5.1 Reservation Charge. Utility shall pay UGIES an Annual Reservation Charge of $33,764,142.00 each year from November 1, 2021 to March 31, 2036 of the Primary Term. The Annual Reservation Charge shall be paid in five (5) equal installments due on November 1, December 1, January 1, February 1, and March 1, during each year of the Primary Term. The Reservation Charge shall be billed and paid in accordance with Section 6 hereof.
5.2 Commodity Charge. Unless Utility elects to lock a fixed price with UGIES in accordance with paragraph (b), below, Utility shall not be obligated to purchase or receive any Natural Gas from UGIES under this Agreement. For all quantities of Natural Gas sold and delivered by UGIES, Utility shall pay a Commodity Charge, which shall be determined according to the following alternatives:
(a)For all quantities of Natural Gas delivered to Utility's city gate, made pursuant to a Day-Ahead or Intraday Nomination up to the MDQ and TWE, Utility shall pay a Commodity Charge equal to the published Platts Gas Daily Midpoint index price, or another mutually agreed upon alternative index, as follows:
|Delivered Pipeline||Price Point|
|Texas Eastern||Texas Eastern M-2 receipts, plus the Texas Eastern Firm Transportation maximum variable rates from Market Area Zone 2 to Market Area Zone 3.|
|Transco||Transco Leidy Line receipts, plus Transco Firm Transportation maximum variable rates from Zone 6 to Zone 6.|
|Columbia||Columbia Gas, Appalachia, plus Columbia Gas Transmission maximum applicable tariff rates including, but not limited to usage and shrinkage on deliveries to Utility’s Columbia Gas Transmission city gates.|
(b)Utility will have the right at any time to lock-in a fixed Commodity Charge for any term and quantity up to the MDQ throughout the Agreement term. The Commodity Charges for locked-in quantities shall be as agreed to by the Parties based, on prevailing market conditions at the time the lock-in is made. Utility's right to lock-in a quantity of Natural Gas shall be limited as follows:
(i)The maximum quantity of Natural Gas for which Utility may lock in a fixed Commodity Charge shall equal the TWE less any quantities previously locked-in for the Winter Season.
(ii)Unless otherwise agreed, Utility shall notify UGIES of its intention to lock-in the Commodity Charge by no later than 10:00 a.m. ECT on the penultimate trading day for the NYMEX Natural Gas contract to the month in which such lock-in will apply. Such notice shall identify the quantity of Natural Gas to be locked-in for each month of delivery. UGIES shall promptly communicate to Utility any limitations on the lock-in quantity identified in Utility's notice and the Parties will utilize commercially reasonable efforts to facilitate the lock-in to the extent practicable.
(iii)If Utility has locked-in a fixed price, Utility shall be required to purchase and take delivery of the quantity of Natural Gas for which a locked-in price is established.
The Commodity Charges determined in accordance with sub-paragraphs (a) and (b) above shall be billed and paid on a monthly basis, in accordance with Section 6.
5.3 Rollover Period Price Adjustment. In the event that Utility elects to extend the agreement for one or more Rollover Terms, the Reservation Charge applicable to such Rollover Term shall be based on the U.S. Gross Domestic Product Implicit Price Deflator using 2021 as the base. Unless otherwise locked-in, in accordance with Section 5.2, the Commodity Charge applicable to the Rollover term will be determined in accordance with the alternatives provided in Section 5.2. For any subsequent term, the escalation fee will be based on the U.S. Gross Domestic Product Implicit Price Deflator using the index from the penultimate full calendar year of the subsequent term.
SECTION 6. Billing and Payment
UGIES will invoice Utility each month of the Winter Season for the Reservation Charges due in accordance with Section 5.1, plus any applicable taxes in accordance with Section 10 hereto. UGIES will invoice Utility monthly for all Commodity Charges applicable to service rendered during the prior month, plus any applicable taxes in accordance with Section 10 hereto. Utility shall pay UGIES the full amount of such Commodity Charges and applicable taxes, due no later than the twentieth (20th) day of the month following Utility's receipt of the invoice. All payments shall be made by Wire Transfer (EFT) to UGIES's banking institution, designated as follows:
