Terms and Conditions for Electric Service

 

1.       The Applicant shall pay the Cooperative the sum of five dollars ($5.00) which on acceptance of this application will constitute the Applicant’s membership fee.

2.       The Applicant shall, in addition, deposit with the Cooperative an advance deposit which by being calculated on the Account’s past history shall represent two (2) times the Account’s highest monthly bill within the most recent twelve (12) months of occupied use.  Advance deposits for service locations having less than 12-months occupancy will be based on use estimates typical for the Account.

3.       The amount, as specified on application for service, shall, upon acceptance of this application and contract, entitle the Applicant to one electric service connection once needed electric energy becomes available at the premises described on this application. If an account becomes delinquent or is disconnected for nonpayment, an advance deposit will be required as a condition for continued service.

4.       The Applicant hereby authorizes the Cooperative to seek past history and to release credit history for future inquiries.

5.       The Applicant hereby grants the Cooperative the right to remove, cut or trim all trees and shrubbery as needed 15 feet on each side of the poles and wire for overhead lines and 10 feet on each side of underground lines, and to cut down all dead, weak, leaning or dangerous trees that are tall enough to strike the wires in falling.  Applicant hereby agrees to release and hold the Cooperative harmless from any and all claims regarding any injuries to our persons or property as a result of refusing to permit appropriate and necessary right-of-way maintenance on our property.  Further, in consideration of the forbearance of the Cooperative to conduct such right-of-way maintenance, we also agree to indemnify and hold the Cooperative harmless from any claims of any third persons as a result of any property damage or personal injury arising out of any unsafe condition resulting from the lack of reasonable and necessary right-of-way maintenance by the Cooperative on our property.

6.       The Applicant, if owner of said property, agrees to grant right-of-way easements and provide access to the Cooperative on Applicant’s property, as such are needed by the Cooperative to obtain a meter reading or to construct, expand, extend, operate and maintain its electrical system as required by law, regulations or accepted industry standards governing the same. Applicant agrees to contact any adjoining property owners and get signed easements to install poles and conductor across their property to furnish service to Applicant’s location. It is further understood by and between the parties hereto, that all equipment, supplies, wiring and other electric facilities installed by the Cooperative upon Applicant’s premises pursuant to this agreement shall be, and remain the personal property of the Cooperative, and Applicant hereby expressly authorizes the Cooperative to remove all its said materials, supplies, equipment, wiring and electrical facilities upon the termination of this agreement or upon disconnection of service. The Applicant may extend this agreement and retain idle facilities for future use by payment of the minimum monthly charge as specified in the rate schedule governing the account.  The Applicant’s payment of retention charges, however, shall not prevent the Cooperative from removing without replacement any idle facilities that become damaged due to causes beyond the Cooperative’s control. Once a service is removed, the Applicant will be required to pay the full costs of retirement and construction of any facilities which he requests to be rebuilt at substantially the same location.

7.       The Applicant, or his agent, shall personally meet the Cooperative’s engineer and determine the best location for the pole or poles required to provide service. The Applicant shall pay the full cost of relocating facilities once construction has been completed.

8.       The Applicant shall, when electric energy becomes available, and apart from any lawful interconnection agreement,  purchase from the Cooperative all electric energy used on the premises described herein and will pay therefore monthly at rates to be determined from time to time in accordance with the bylaws of the Cooperative, provided however, that the Cooperative may limit the amount of electric energy furnished to the Applicant, and provided further that the Applicant shall pay a minimum amount per month as specified in the rate governing the account regardless of the number of kilowatt-hours consumed. The Cooperative shall have the power to void this contract and cancel membership at any time the Applicant’s account for electric energy shall become delinquent.

9.       The Applicant shall cause his facilities to be wired in accordance with the National Electrical Code specifications, any local government specifications, and any specifications approved by the Cooperative.

10.    The Applicant shall comply with and be bound by the provisions of the articles of incorporation and the bylaws of the Cooperative, and all amendments thereto, and the terms and conditions for service as may from time to time be adopted by the Cooperative.

11.    The Applicant, by paying a membership and becoming a member, assumes no personal liability or responsibility for any debts of the Cooperative and it is expressly understood that under the law, his private property is exempt from execution of any such debts or liabilities.

12.    The Cooperative is committed not to discriminate against any person on the grounds of race, color, national origin, age or disability in its policies and practices relating to the treatment of beneficiaries and participants including rates, conditions and extension of service, use of its facilities, attendance at and participation in any meetings of beneficiaries and participants or the exercise of any rights of such beneficiaries and participants in the conduct of the operations of this organization.

13.    Contributions in aid of construction shall be paid in advance of construction, and except when agreed to in writing all such contributions shall be nonrefundable.

14.    There are many factors, commonly known as acts of God, which are beyond the control of the Cooperative. The Cooperative cannot be held responsible for damages caused by such factors. The Cooperative shall not be liable for personal property damages that result from factors beyond its control.

15.    The Applicant hereby agrees that $3.48 of the amount paid for electricity each year is for a subscription to OKLAHOMA LIVING.
