TERMS OF SERVICE: GEORGIA

These Terms and Conditions of Service, together with the Disclosure Statement, outline the complete agreement between Town Square Energy, LP and you. This Agreement is subject to all applicable Georgia laws, the Georgia Public Service Commission’s rules and regulations applicable to retail natural gas service, and the approved tariff for the electing distribution company, Atlanta Gas Light.

1. DEFINITIONS:

Atlanta Gas Light (“AGL”) – The utility that owns and operates the gas pipeline system, serves and reads your gas meter, and responds to gas leaks and other emergencies. AGL is regulated by the PSC.

Georgia Public Service Commission (“GPSC”) – The state agency that oversees the natural gas market in Georgia.

Town Square Energy, LP (“TSE”) – A natural gas marketer, certificated by the GPSC to serve natural gas customers in the AGL service territory.

Residential Customer – A customer that consumes natural gas primarily for personal, family, or household purposes.

2. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: You have selected TSE to supply natural gas service to your residence, and in so doing, you acknowledge that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older, authorized to enter into this agreement at the address you provided for service, and all information provided for service is accurate and true.

3. ENROLLMENT: To request service with TSE, you must contact our customer service center by telephone or enroll online at www.Gas.TownSquareEnergy.com. In some instances, TSE may require a request for service in writing. Acceptance of your request for service does not guarantee service, and you understand that TSE may deny your application. Enrollment with TSE for natural gas service is for a particular location, and if you wish to establish service for another location, you must enroll separately for the new location.

If you are turning on service for the first time or at a new location, or after a disconnection, your agreement with TSE becomes effective on the date AGL turns on service.

If you are switching to TSE from an existing marketer, and if you sign up by the 19th day of a given month, your switch will typically become effective on the 1st day of the next month. If you enroll after the 19th day of the month, or if the 19th is on a weekend or holiday, your switch may be delayed an additional month.

4. PRICING PLANS: Your Disclosure Statement included as part of these Terms and Conditions of Service details the length of your plan, the rate per therm, and additional terms of your service.

Fixed Rate – Under a fixed-rate plan, the price per therm and customer service charge will remain in effect for the term of your contract. A monthly customer service charge, state and local taxes will be charged in addition to your rate per therm. Additional charges under this plan may be assessed as described in the “Components of your Bill” section. Prior to the expiration of your fixed-rate, TSE will notify you at least two times, and provide information on your options for a new rate plan. At least sixty (60) days, prior to the date of the agreement’s expiration, the first notification shall explain all present options, to include the option to seek another marketer. Additionally, a second written notification will be sent separately from the bill, no later than twenty-five (25) days prior to the expiration date of a fixed-term agreement. This second notification shall include, but not be limited to, the expiration date of the current fixed term agreement, the rate and terms of a fixed-term agreement being offered, and the type of rate plan, including the Terms and Conditions of Service, that you will be placed on if you do not contact TSE to request a specific rate plan. If you do not make a selection prior to the expiration of your fixed-rate, your service will continue uninterrupted and will be priced at a monthly variable-rate plan until you select a different rate plan, cancel service, or switch to a different marketer.

Variable Rate – Under a variable rate plan, the price per therm may change monthly based on market conditions. The AGL base charges may change month to month, pursuant to GPSC-approved calculations and/or seasonal changes and are billed monthly. A monthly customer service charge, state and local taxes will be charged in addition to your rate per therm. Additional charges under this plan may be assessed pursuant to your actions,

such as a late fee or reconnection fee. TSE will not increase your monthly customer service charges or alter the terms or your service without providing you advance written notice of those changes at least twenty-five (25) days prior to implementation.

5. CREDIT POLICY and DEPOSITS: TSE typically performs a credit review on all customers establishing or reconnecting service. Review of your creditworthiness may impact your rate plan, customer service charge, and deposit requirement. If your request for service is declined, TSE will provide a written explanation of the reason(s) for the decision to you.

TSE may require a deposit as security for your service pursuant to a review of credit criteria and/or past payment history with TSE. The deposit shall not exceed $150.00 for a residential customer. TSE reserves the right to assess a deposit prior to establishing service and to existing customers if they do not meet credit requirements. If a deposit is required, and your account remains in good standing for six (6) months, including but not limited to timely payments for six (6) months, TSE will refund your deposit by applying a credit to your account, or upon your request, by check. TSE shall pay interest on your deposit for gas service held six (6) months or longer at least equal to the interest rate paid by the financial institution where the escrow account is located. If you maintain a deposit on your account and terminate service, your deposit will be refunded within sixty (60) days. Deposits will not be refunded if you have an outstanding balance exceeding the amount of the deposit. If the outstanding or overdue balance is less than the deposit, TSE will refund the difference. You are responsible for providing TSE with a current mailing address to ensure a refund check is delivered to the correct location.

c. Dedicated Design Day Capacity (DDDC): A charge that recovers costs associated with delivering gas to your home or business.

2. TSE Charge

a. Customer Service Charge – The Customer Service Charge covers the cost to maintain and service your account. The charge may vary based on creditworthiness, payment history, and/or service requirements. The full monthly charge will be applied to your bill, even when you have a partial month of service.

d. Reconnection Charges – If your service is disconnected for non-payment, you will be assessed a reconnection charge up to $75.00, of which $25.00 is an AGL pass-through charge. A seasonal customer, who voluntarily disconnects and reconnects service within a twelve (12) month period at the same location will be assessed a connection fee of $75.00, of which $50.00 is an AGL pass-through charge.

e. Switching Charge – You may switch your service at no cost once every twelve (12) months. If you have switched your service more than once during the last twelve (12) months, you will be assessed a $7.50 AGL switch fee.

f. Late Charge – If your payment is late, TSE reserves the right to bill a Late Charge in the amount of $10.00 or 1.5 percent of the past due amount, whichever is greater. A late fee will not be applied if the past due balance is less than $30.00.

g. Insufficient Funds Charge – If any returned check, bank draft, or credit card transaction is not processed due to insufficient funds, TSE reserves the right to bill a fee, not to exceed $30.00.

7. BILLING: Payment is due in full on or before the due date on your bill. You will have at least twenty (20) days from the date the bill is mailed to you to pay the balance due. After the due date, TSE reserves the right to bill a late charge in the amount of $10.00 or 1.5% of the past due balance, whichever is greater. A late fee will not be applied if the past due balance is less than $30.00. AGL maintains and reads your natural gas meter and provides the actual meter reading to TSE for billing. In the event that the actual meter reading is not available, TSE will send an estimated bill. In such cases, the meter reading on your bill will be clearly marked as an estimate, and estimated bills will not be sent for more than two (2) consecutive months. If you receive a bill that contains charges that were incorrect or were previously unbilled, you are entitled to an extended payment arrangement of not less than ninety (90) days. TSE reserves the right to collect any outstanding balance on your account, even if you no longer receive natural gas service from TSE. The account may be sent to a third party and/or collections attorney, and TSE retains the right to seek additional costs associated with collecting the debt.

Billing Disputes If you believe your bill is incorrect, please call 1-888-998-1928 or email customercare@townsquareenergy.com. In order to avoid late fees or disconnection of service, you must contact us within thirty (30) days of your bill date. You are responsible for payment on any portion of the bill that is not in dispute by the stated due date. Once TSE has investigated your concern, you will receive a response with TSE’s resolution by telephone, or if you request it, a written response will be provided. Upon resolution of the disputed amount, any outstanding balance due, shall be paid by the due date.

Budget Billing

If TSE offers you a Budget Billing plan, your monthly payment will be determined by averaging the projected annual bills over a twelve (12) month period under your then-current rate plan. At least once every twelve (12) months, TSE will reconcile the difference between what you have already paid and what your actual energy costs

have been during that period. If you cancel your Budget Billing plan or if you fail to make a timely payment, your plan shall be canceled, and any balance owed becomes due.

Electronic Billing and Communication

TSE may offer you the option to receive your bills and other account communications via electronic mail, text, or other electronic means, in accordance with all applicable GPSC rules.
