      8. Customers having a heavy duty meter (400 amp, type CL 320) on premise.
    3. Customers shall promptly notify MID of any event that would render the customer ineligible to participate in Power Up.
  3. Payment:
    1. Customer shall establish an online Power Up account at mid.org/powerup. Customer agrees to provide true, accurate, current, and complete information for such account.  If customer provides any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, MID reserves the right to suspend or terminate customer's participation in Power Up.
    2. Customer must establish a minimum initial balance in the Power Up account of $50.00. Account balances, usage and payments may be accessed online at mid.org/powerup.
    3. Customer's account must maintain a positive balance of at least $10.00 at all times.
    4. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, debit or credit cards. Checks and money orders are not accepted.
    5. Payments can be made 24 hours a day via debit or credit card through online at mid.org/powerup, mobile app or by calling (209) 408-1554. Cash payments can be made at MID Payment Kiosks, MoneyGram or PayNearMe locations during normal business hours.
    6. Existing MID customers with account balances can either pay such debt in full at the time the customer's Power Up account is established or sign up for the debt management program pursuant to which 15% of each payment made on customer's Power Up account will be applied towards the outstanding balance until the existing debt is eliminated.
    7. MID will make every effort to ensure that customers payments are processed in a timely manner and that customers receive their purchased electricity within a reasonable time.  However, MID does not guarantee in any way that electric service will be completely error free or uninterrupted.
    8. Power Up accounts do not receive paper statements. Daily Power Up account history (usage, charges and payments) will be available by phone or online at mid.org/powerup.
    9. Power Up accounts are not eligible for payment arrangements and are not subject to deposits, late fees, disconnect or reconnect fees.
  4. Notifications:
    1. Customers enrolled in Power Up shall provide at least one form of electronic communication and authorize MID to send account information and notifications to customers using such forms of communication, at customer's expense. Customers shall promptly update their online Power Up account with any changes in these forms of communications. MID shall rely on the customer's current online account information to provide notices and other information.
    2. Each customer shall be fully responsible for timely account payments to keep electric service active even if the electronic notifications are not received. Customers understand that if their Power Up account balance falls below $10.00, whether or not a customer actually receives notice of the low or below $10.00 balance, MID may automatically disconnect the customer's Power Up account and electric service.
  5. Disconnection and Reconnection:
    1. Electric service may be disconnected on the day that the customer's account balance reduces to or below $10.00. A customer whose account reaches such $10.00 balance will be sent an electronic notice of the disconnection and a minimum payment of $10.00 will be required to maintain service.
    2. Automatic disconnect/reconnect will be determined by positive credit balance amount of $10.00 or more.
    3. Customer understands and acknowledges that disconnect and other notices provided under Power Up may not meet the timing or delivery requirements otherwise required, and customer waives any and all rights, claims or complaints it may have against MID for lack of notice.
    4. MID cannot guarantee that a payment will be posted to customer's Power Up account in time to avoid disconnection due to the time delay between the customer making the payment and the Power Up account receiving notification of the payment.
    5. Customers acknowledge and agree that Power Up is a pilot program, which means the required minimum payment does not guarantee immediately restored electric services, however, MID expects the Power Up customer's power to be restored in no more than four hours.
    6. MID reserves the right to suspend disconnection activities without further notice or responsibility for any costs, and customer shall be responsible for all electric service charges incurred in excess of the prepaid amounts.
  6. Termination:
    1. Customers may terminate participation in Power Up at any time. You may elect to convert your account to post-paid service, although you will be required to pay all account balances and will be subject to required deposits and any fees prior to re-establishing post-paid service.
    2. MID reserves the right to terminate Power Up at any time and/or to terminate service to a customer pursuant to Power Up.
    3. Customers that MID determines to have been involved in tampering with MID's meter or other facilities, or in any unauthorized diversion of electricity, may be terminated and permanently excluded from participation in Power Up or other pilot programs initiated by MID.
    4. Any Power Up account that has been disconnected more than 30 days will be terminated from the program.
  7. Security and Privacy:
    1.
