    [XYZ REP] agrees to pass through the Service Quality Credits to the end-use customer who is occupying the premise on the day the Service Quality Credit is issued.

    Failure to execute this Agreement means that the non-signatory REP foregoes receipt of any Service Quality Credit to which a customer of such REP may otherwise be entitled, and TCC shall incorporate such Service Quality Credit(s) into the pool of Service Quality Credits accruing under the ISA’s system-wide reliability standards to be distributed at the next distribution period.

    If a premise with respect to which a Service Quality Credit is attributable has no REP of record at the time the Service Quality Credits owing for the 2005 and 2006 calendar years are issues, and if that premise had a REP of record sometime during the calendar year being measured for purposes of calculating Service Quality Credits, then TCC shall incorporate any Service Quality Credit attributable to that premise into the pool of Service Quality Credits accruing under the ISA’s system-wide reliability standards to be distributed at the next distribution period.

    The term of this Agreement shall commence upon the Effective Date and continue until the termination of the ISA, until [XYZ REP] becomes ineligible to serve in TCC’s service territory, or until [XYZ REP] terminates this Agreement, such termination to take effect upon thirty (30) days notice to TCC.
