b) If you entered into this Agreement over the telephone or internet, when you receive a copy of the terms and conditions contained in this document.
Late Payment Charge.  We may apply a one-time late payment charge of 3.25% of any amount you owe to us that is not paid in the billing cycle following the billing cycle in which the amount was originally billed.
Site.  Each natural gas meter is considered a site for the purposes of this Agreement.
Site Administration Fee.  A set amount we charge for the supply of energy on a per site per billing cycle basis.  The administration fee is $6.99 per month.
Start Date.  The date we first supply natural gas to a Site which will be no later than 40 days from the later of 1) the Effective Date; 2) the date you add a Site to this Agreement, or the date Nicor Gas confirms us as your supplier.
Term.  Your term will begin on the Start Date and will continue until cancelled or terminated.

YOUR AGREEMENT
The Agreement can include: The Sign-up form, any recorded telephone conversation between you and us and any internet contract acknowledged by you relating to this Agreement.  All components of the Agreement shall collectively for one singular agreement.

We agree to supply natural gas to you and you agree to pay us for natural gas based on the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

PRICE AND TERM
Natural Gas Rate.  You agree to a variable energy rate which may change monthly.  In determining our price, FNE considers daily average market prices together with changes in taxes, fees, costs of operation and the effect of the rebate. The overall cost of the FNE natural gas charge will be competitive, but because of the rebate feature, the initial cost may be higher than some alternative suppliers. The FNE natural gas charge will be separately stated on your bill and covers only the natural gas supply portion of the bill. 
Rebate. A rebate of 10% of the FNE natural gas charge, excluding taxes and fees, will accrue during the Term. The Accrued Rebate is payable in two parts.    A Quarterly Rebate equal to 50% of the accrued rebate for each quarter during the Term becomes payable during the third and subsequent quarters of the Term. The balance of the accrued rebate is payable during the 9th quarter following the quarter in which the rebate accrued.  Payable rebate amounts less than $100 are not paid but carried forward to future quarters for payment. Rebate accruals will not be paid if the Agreement is cancelled or terminated prior to the quarter in which the rebate becomes payable.
Term. Your term will begin on the Start Date and will continue until cancelled or terminated (the “Term”).  Nicor Gas will send notice to you confirming the switch to FNE.   You will have ten business days from the date Nicor Gas issues the notice to rescind the switch without penalty.  You must contact Nicor Gas at 1-888-642-6748 or FNE at 1-855-255-3616 to rescind the switch.  FNE charges no early termination fee.

BILLING AND PAYMENT
Billing. Nicor Gas will bill you regularly, based on the most current contact information you have provided to them.  The Nicor Gas bill will include Nicor Gas’s distribution charges, FNE’s natural gas charge and other fees as described in this Agreement plus all applicable taxes.
Payment.  You must pay our portion of the Nicor Gas bill in full by the Payment Due Date.  Payments on our behalf should be made directly to Nicor Gas.  As compensation for the supply of natural gas provided to you under this Agreement, you agree to pay us, by the Payment Due Date the sum of the following amounts:
a) For each site, the natural gas charge based on the amount of natural gas we supply to you at that Site; plus
b) Site administration fees related to the Sites; plus
c) Late Payment Charges, if any, as described in this Agreement.
Late Payments and Bill Disputes.  If we do not receive your payment in full by the Payment Due Date, we may charge you a Late Payment Charge.  If you dispute your bill, you must pay your bill in full while the dispute is being resolved.  In addition, you are responsible for all legal and collection fees associated with us trying to collect any amounts owing from you.  If you do not pay your bills on time, we may cancel this Agreement in accordance with the cancellation terms described within this Agreement.

CHANGES TO THE SUPPLY OF NATURAL GAS
Moving.  You must give us 30 days’ notice before you move and your notice must specify your new gas meter number and service address.  If you do not give us at least 30 days’ notice before you move, any interruption in the supply of natural gas and any costs either you or we incur as a consequence of the inadequate notice will be your responsibility.  If you relocate within a territory we serve, this Agreement will be amended to apply to your new location.  If your new location is not within a territory we serve, this Agreement will terminate on the date of your move, however, you will be responsible for any charges incurred prior to your move.
