This Purchasing Terms and Conditions Agreement, together with any Invoice Statements (hereinafter defined as the “Agreement”), is between Rural Energy Enterprises, Inc. (“REE”), located at 6637 Arctic Spur Rd., Anchorage, Alaska, 99518-1549, and the undersigned dealer (“Dealer”).

  1. Financing Terms and Invoice Statements. REE will send Dealer an Invoice Statement at the time the product is shipped. Dealer shall pay the current amount due on the Invoice Statement within 30 days of the date of the Invoice Statement. If Dealer fails to pay REE within 30 days of the date of the Invoice Statement, the amounts for all current Invoice Statements to Dealer become immediately due and the total amount that Dealer owes to REE shall be considered Past Due.
  2. Return of Products to REE. All products returned for credit or refund to REE shall be handled as follows:
    • Dealer shall contact REE for a return authorization number within 30 days of the date of the Invoice Statement.
    • Dealer shall prepay all freight for shipment back to REE.
    • REE must receive all products in the original or comparable cartons and in good condition, and Dealer bears the risk of loss during shipment. REE will not accept broken or partial cartons for return.
    • REE will impose a 10% restocking charge on all returns, except as provided in this paragraph. The return of electrical components is subject to a 25% restocking fee, if REE determines that the box has been opened. If opened, the electrical component will be tested at REE’s convenience, and if the item fails inspections, then in REE’s sole discretion, credit will be denied.
    • REE reserves the right to refuse the return of products at its sole and absolute discretion.
  3. Past Due Accounts. REE will charge Dealer a service charge of 1.5% per month on any Past Due account. REE may ship all future orders to Past Due accounts cash on delivery (“C.O.D.”), and the total amount due at the time of delivery will include C.O.D. fees, shipping charges, and the total balance due on Dealer’s account. Furthermore, REE reserves the right to withhold future shipments to any overdue accounts.
  4. Dealer’s Obligation. Dealer promises to pay to REE all sums that Dealer owes REE at the time of executing this Agreement, plus all charges on future Invoice Statements that REE sends to Dealer, and any other charges, costs, or fees assessed pursuant to the terms of this Agreement, including any renewals, extensions, or modifications of this Agreement (“Obligation”).
  5. Security Interests. Dealer grants to REE a Security Interest in all products that REE ships to Dealer, and the proceeds of the same, whether now owned or after acquired (“Collateral”), for the purpose of securing Dealer’s Obligation to REE. REE’s Security Interests in the proceeds of any sale from Dealer to a consumer includes any instruments, chattel paper, or any item of value, or the proceeds from the same that Dealer receives pursuant to the sale to the consumer.
  6. Dealer’s Rights of Possession and Use. REE acknowledges that Dealer, in the ordinary course of business, sells the products supplied by REE to consumers who shall take free and clear of REE’s Security Interests in the products. Until Default, Dealer shall have the right to possess and use the products REE supplies to Dealer in the ordinary course of business, subject to the terms of this Agreement.
  7. Financing Statements. Dealer warrants and conveys that no financing statement covering any of the Collateral or any proceeds of the same is on file with any public office. At the request of REE and in a form acceptable to REE, Dealer shall join in executing one or more financing statements, or notifying holders of existing security interests of record in the same Collateral of this purchase money security interests.
  8. Default. The occurrence of one or more of the following events shall constitute a Default by Dealer:

    • Dealer abandons the Collateral; or
    • Dealer or any Guarantor takes any action purposing to revoke, limit, or terminate a guaranty or other assurances of payment of the Obligation.
  9. Dealer’s Covenants. In furtherance of the intent of this Agreement, Dealer makes the following warranties and covenants:

    • Dealer shall promptly pay all taxes, assessments, liens, or encumbrances, governmental or private, levied on or against the Collateral.

  10. REE’s Remedies. Upon Default, or at any time while Dealer remains in Default, REE may declare all amounts that Dealer owes to REE due and payable, and REE shall have all the rights and remedies of the secured party under AS 45.29.601--45.29.628.

  11. Waiver. REE may, in its sole discretion, choose not to enforce any portion of this Agreement, and any such choice shall not constitute evidence that REE has waived any protection guaranteed by this Agreement.
