You agree to purchase electric generation service from DPI for the Account Number(s) and Service Address(es) identified by you during the telephone enrollment TPV or the Web Enrollment, which serves as an Electronic Signature.

Terms of Service
Rates, Billing, and Payment -
You will pay the price indicated on your Contract Summary
throughout the Term of the Agreement as identified on your Contract Summary. At the end of the Term, the
price will renew to a new fixed rate and term as explained in Section 7.
All prices exclude applicable state and local Sales Taxes. If you are claiming exemption from any tax, you must provide an exemption certificate or acceptable alternate proof of exemption.
You will receive a single bill from your EDC that includes DPI’s Generation Charges as well as the EDC’s delivery charges. The bill will contain, among other charges, the EDC’s delivery charge, any other charges collected by the EDC and DPI’s Generation Charge for the amount of electricity you used during the billing cycle. The amount of electricity used by you will be measured or estimated by the EDC. Your payment will be due to the EDC by the date specified in the EDC bill. If you fail to pay it on time, you could be subject to interest and late charges imposed by the EDC, and your service could be disconnected.

- Length of Agreement - Once the Utility accepts your enrollment with DPI, you will purchase your electric generation service from DPI for the term specified in your Contract Summary (“Term”).
- Penalties, Fees and Exceptions No cancellation fee is applicable to this plan.
- Price Variability - This is a fixed rate product for the Term; there will be no variability of price during the Term. Please see your Contract Summary for details. Prior to the end of the Term, you will be notified of your options going forward as described below in Section 7, and any changes to price variability that could result.
- Cancellation Provisions - For all Agreements, either party can cancel by contacting the other. Timing of your cancellation is subject to EDC tariff provisions, including the timing of your meter read. You can call, write, or contact DPI electronically to cancel this Agreement (contact information below). Some common reasons for cancellation are: Non-Payment: If your electric service is terminated by your EDC, then this Agreement is cancelled on the date your electric service is terminated. You will still owe us for amounts unpaid for our charges for electric generation service up to the date of cancellation. Company-Initiated Cancellation: If we cancel this Agreement for any reason other than for customer non-payment, we will provide written notice to you at least 30 days prior to the cancellation. Customer-Initiated Cancellation: If you elect to cancel a Fixed Rate Plan under this Agreement prior to the end of the Term, you will pay a cancellation fee as set forth above. If you elect to cancel after the Term expires, there is no cancellation fee. Customer Move: It shall not be considered a cancellation or early termination of this agreement if you change service addresses within the state and remain with DPI. Following cancellation of service under this Agreement you may contact your EDC (contact information below) to arrange for service from a different service provider.
- Product Composition - If the product you contracted for contains renewable content above the minimum required by CT regulations, the amount will be identified in the Contract Summary. Renewable energy facilities generating renewable energy credits (“REC’s”) will vary, and in addition to the Connecticut Renewable Portfolio Standard minimums, may include a combination of regional or national sources such as wind, renewable biomass, solar and small scale hydro. Further details regarding sources of renewable energy may be included in the Welcome Letter and/or in the Environmental Disclosure Statement.
- Renewal Provision/Agreement Expiration/Change in Terms - Under Connecticut law, you may elect to receive written notification of your agreement’s renewal, its expiration or a change in its terms by US mail, email, text message, cell phone application or third party notification service. To change your method of notification, please contact us at CustomerService@discountpowerinc.com or (877)259-7693. If you have a Fixed Rate Plan approaching expiration, renewal, or material change in the terms of service, you will receive written notifications 30 to 60 days prior to said expiration, renewal, or change in terms. These notifications will explain your options going forward. For Fixed Rate plans, following the end of the Term you may automatically renew on a new fixed rate plan, with rate and term provided in the notice. You will be subject to an early cancellation fee on your new fixed rate plan unless you notify DPI of your intent to cancel within 7 days after you receive the first billing statement on the new fixed rate plan. Each renewal period after your initial term will be deemed a “Renewal Term”.
