GREEN MOUNTAIN ELECTRIC SUPPLY, INC. 

GMES AND ITS AGENTS. For all sales, “GMES” shall mean Green Mountain Electric Supply, Inc., a Vermont corporation. Wherever GMES’s signature or approval is required, it must be by an Officer of Green Mountain Electric Supply, Inc. GMES’s agents, employees, and representatives have no authority to bind GMES to any affirmation, waiver, representation, or warranty inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, unless expressly agreed to in writing by an Officer of GMES or otherwise approved by duly authorized corporation action. Subject to the foregoing, it is agreed that either party may communicate with the other by electronic means, and each party agrees when electronic communications are used, they are deemed to be the equivalent of written and signed documents.

GENERAL AGREEMENT. All sales made by GMES are expressly subject to and conditioned upon these Terms and Conditions. No additional or different terms shall apply (whether a part of Buyer’s purchase order or other communication from Buyer) unless expressly agreed to in writing by an Officer of GMES or by another person duly authorized by enforceable corporate action. Any acceptance by Buyer with additional or different terms proposed in the acceptance shall be deemed a rejection of GMES’s offer and construed as a counteroffer, and no binding agreement shall come into existence without the written consent of GMES to such counteroffer made by an Officer of GMES. Any attempt to vary any of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a material alteration. Notice is hereby given that GMES objects to any different or additional terms and that such different or additional terms shall not be binding upon it. Acceptance of or payment for any of the goods constitutes Buyer’s agreement to these Terms and Conditions of Sale. These Terms and Conditions are incorporated by reference in every purchase agreement, sales agreement, estimate, quotation, or other agreement with Buyer, and they shall control notwithstanding anything to the contrary therein. Buyer’s issuance of an order in response to an estimate or quotation shall be deemed an acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Sale. All orders received are subject to initial acceptance by GMES and subsequent credit approval. GMES may reject any order in its sole discretion. Orders received by facsimile, website or e-mail require written acceptance. In the event Buyer requests a modification or change to specifications, quantity or time of delivery or performance, such request will be acceptable only upon written approval by GMES.

ACCEPTANCE OF INVOICE. Buyer will be conclusively deemed to have accepted and agreed to any invoice from GMES (including but not limited to the price, quantity, quality, and description of the goods as stated on the invoice and any and all terms, provisions, conditions, agreements, representations, and warranties on the invoices), unless GMES receives written objection to the invoice from Buyer within 10 days after the date the invoice is sent to Buyer. Written objection must be sent by letter to GMES at its main office at 356 Rathe Road, Colchester, Vermont, 05446) by registered or certified mail specifying the nature of the complaint. Buyer’s compliance with these conditions precedent shall not constitute an admission by GMES of the merits or amount of Buyer’s claim or defense. Unless the cancellation is due to a default by GMES, once an order is placed with and accepted by GMES, the order cannot be cancelled, unless GMES consents in writing. If an order is cancelled, Buyer shall reimburse GMES for any cost it incurs as a result of such cancellation, including but not limited to cancellation or restocking fees.

DELIVERY. Shipping dates given in advance of actual shipment are estimated. GMES shall not be liable for failure to perform or delay in performance resulting from fire or other casualty loss, war, riot, act of terrorism or revolutions, labor difficulties, embargo, transportation problems, accidents, breakdown of machinery, interruptions or delays in the usual source of supply, governmental action or regulation, or any other cause, contingency or circumstance, within or without the United States, not subject to GMES’s control which shall make the fulfillment of the agreement impracticable; any of which shall, without liability, excuse GMES from the performance of the agreement. All direct shipments are F.O.B. point of shipment, and each shipment or delivery shall be considered a separate and independent transaction. Responsibility for filing claims with the manufacturer or carrier, as the case may be, rest with the Buyer. Invoices generated for shipments made by GMES vehicle or third party carrier, or for pick-up by Buyer, shall be deemed to be evidence of delivery. Orders will be considered complete upon shipment of a reasonable quantity over or under the amount specified in the order when it is impractical to produce the exact quantity ordered. Normal tolerances in specifications shall be acceptable.

ACCEPTANCE OF GOODS. Buyer shall make an examination of any goods delivered hereunder immediately upon its receipt. Buyer’s failure to give written notice of any claim within 10 days after the receipt of such material shall constitute Buyer’s unqualified acceptance of such material and a waiver by Buyer of all claims with respect thereto including any right to revoke acceptance. Upon acceptance, Buyer assumes all risks and liability for the results obtained in its business by the use of any materials delivered or by the use of such materials in combination with other goods or materials. In no event may Buyer set-off payment for any rejected or revoked acceptance goods against payment due on goods accepted. No claims shall be allowed for wire or cable once cut by Buyer.

SINGLE BREACH BY BUYER. Each shipment shall be treated as a separate and independent contract with respect to forwarding and terms of settlement. However, if Buyer defaults in the payment of any purchase price when due, GMES may, without prejudice to other lawful remedies, immediately place the account on hold and defer further performance until the defaulted payments are made, or on three days’ written notice to Buyer, may either make future deliveries against the contract for cash in advance only, or treat the entire contract as breached by Buyer and pursue its remedies for such breach.

AUTHORIZATION OF BUYER AND BUYER’S AGENTS. In consideration of GMES selling goods to Buyer, the person signing any such acceptance or agreement on behalf of Buyer represents and warrants that he or she is authorized to sign on behalf of Buyer. The parent company, if any, of Buyer also guarantees performance of the agreement and payment by Buyer. The person signing and Buyer warrant that the information given to GMES is true and correct in all respects.

PAYMENT. Unless there is an express written agreement between GMES and Buyer specifying different payment terms, GMES invoices will be due 10 days after shipment of products. All payments must be received within 10 days (or such other time period as we may mutually agree in writing). There is no grace period, and Buyer’s account may be automatically placed on hold if payment is not received within the period provided by these terms and conditions. Buyer must ensure that payments are processed and mailed on time to meet these requirements. GMES is not responsible for any losses or damages that Buyer may incur due to suspension or termination of any account or agreement. Unless indicated otherwise on the Invoice or Statement, all payments should be made payable to: Green Mountain Electric Supply, Inc. and sent to the following address: 356 Rathe Road, Colchester, Vermont, 05446. Buyer’s obligation to pay GMES for the goods and services provided are not conditioned upon Buyer obtaining acceptance or approval from any third party (e.g. lenders, contractors, project managers, bondholders, insurance companies, owners) or receiving payment from any third party (e.g. “retainage” amounts, insurance or bond proceeds, or “pay-when-paid” contract agreements).

TAXES. The prices for goods do not include any sales, use or other taxes or charges payable to state or local authorities. Buyer shall be responsible for and shall pay all federal, state and local sales, use, property, excise, freight or other taxes imposed on or with respect to the goods, except taxes levied on GMES’s net income with respect to such goods. To the extent that such taxes do not appear as an itemized charge, Buyer certifies that the sale of the goods is exempt from such taxes and Buyer assumes the liability for any such tax which may be found to be due, and agrees to indemnify and hold GMES harmless with respect thereto.

SERVICE CHARGES. Invoices that are more than 10 days past due are subject to interest from the due date until paid at the lesser of 1.5% per month (18% per annum), or the highest rate permitted by applicable law. 

SECURITY INTEREST. In addition to any security interest granted by the Uniform Commercial Code, Buyer grants GMES a security interest in all goods, equipment, proceeds, and products from the same to secure all obligations of the Buyer to GMES. Buyer authorizes GMES to file financing statements evidencing the security interest granted hereby. In case of a default by Buyer, GMES may peaceably enter the premises of the Buyer to repossess all Equipment in which it has a security interest, Buyer shall not sell, exchange, transfer, or grant a security interest in any goods, equipment, proceeds or products which are subject to these Terms and Conditions if payment for same has not been made in full to GMES.

RETURNS. In no case are goods to be returned without first obtaining GMES’s permission.

Goods must be securely packed to reach GMES without damage. Material accepted for credit may be subject to a service charge plus all transportation charges. Credit for returned goods will be allowed only to the extent agreed to in writing by a duly authorized representative of GMES and no application for credit will be processed unless Buyer provides the original invoice number and date. Returned merchandise may be subject to a reasonable handling and restocking charge. Buyer understands and agrees that any order cancelled, returned, or postponed for material that is dedicated, special, or specific to the Buyer or that is not normally a stocked item and/or quantity ordered exceeds GMES’s normal on-hand inventory level will be subject to a cancellation, handling, return, or restocking charge of up to 100% of the value as determined by GMES. Buyer also shall be fully responsible for all goods that are specially designed, modified or manufactured specifically for Buyer or otherwise not returnable under GMES's or manufacturer's return policy, which are on hand at GMES, work in process, in transit or on back order.

EXTRA EXPENSE. No labor expense or other charges will be accepted by GMES as a result of the use or modification of any of the goods sold hereunder, unless approved in writing by a duly authorized representative of GMES prior to the incurring of such expense.
