Texas Home Standby Generator Program Terms and Conditions ("T&Cs")

Between Customer and Generac Grid Services LLC

Welcome to the Texas Program (the "Program") presented by Generac Grid Services LLC ("Generac"). Throughout these T&Cs, the references to "you" and "your" refer to you as the undersigned Generac customer, participant in the Program and owner of a Generac home generator ("Generator") that is connected to the electrical system of your home. Your participation in the Program is governed by these T&Cs.

THIS PROGRAM IS VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.

How the Program Works. The Program utilizes your Generator to help distribute power to the electric grid during times of energy emergency by turning on your Generator when the Electric Reliability Council of Texas ("ERCOT") identifies the need for emergency capacity through its Emergency Response Service. For enrolling in the Program in accordance with these T&Cs, you will receive one entry in a $5,000 sweepstakes. Every time your generator is used to help the electric grid ("Grid Saving Event"), you will receive one additional entry in the sweepstakes and $5 per hour that your generator runs ("Incentive Payment").

The Program will continue to operate until such time as you unenroll or Generac terminates the Program, in its sole discretion ("Term"). These T&Cs shall be in effect for the Term, unless terminated earlier in accordance with these T&Cs. You are free to withdraw from the Program at any time by submitting your request here. If you withdraw from the Program prior to the completion of the calendar year, you forego any future Incentive Payment.

During the Program, Generac will initiate a number of Grid Saving Events. During such time, Generac will remotely manage your Generator to prepare for and perform in these Grid Saving Events. The participation of your Generator in these Grid Saving Events is a required component of the Program, and you agree to use your best efforts to participate in the maximum number of these Grid Saving Events during the term of the Program. The number and nature of the Grid Saving Events will be decided by Generac. Generac will provide a way for you to opt-out of specific Grid Saving Events. If you opt-out of the majority of Grid Saving Events in a calendar year, Generac reserves the right to remove you from the Program.

To implement and participate in the Program, Generac works with several program partners and administrators. Generac contracts with Leapfrog Power, Inc. ("Leap") and MP2 Energy, LLC ("MP2") to provide demand response services and schedule your Generator to participate in the Program. You authorize MP2 to serve as your exclusive qualified scheduling entity for any energy products transacted through markets operated by ERCOT, including but not limited to the market for Emergency Response Service. Your further authorize Generac, ERCOT, Leap, and MP2 to share your Data to administer the Program (See the “Information” section for further details).

Participation in the Program will not affect your Generator warranty, which will remain in full force and affect in accordance with its terms.

Program Requirements. The following describes your additional requirements for participation in the Program. Your failure to comply, in the sole discretion of Generac, with any of these requirements below or any other obligation or requirement of these T&Cs or the Program, may at any time result in: (a) suspension or disqualification and unenrollment from the Program, (b) suspension of future Incentive Payments; or (c) the termination of these T&Cs, and any such results shall be final and binding in all respects and without liability to Generac.
