Event of Force Majeure Except with respect to the payment of money due, neither party shall be responsible or liable to the other hereunder for the failure or delay in the performance of this Agreement due to any civil unrest, war, fire, earthquake, hurricane, accident or other casualty, or any labor disturbance or act of God or the public enemy, or any other contingency beyond the party’s reasonable control. In the event of the applicability of this Section 11.7, the party failing or delaying performance shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to eliminate, cure and overcome any of such causes and resume the performance of its obligations. Upon the occurrence of an event of force majeure, the party failing or delaying performance shall promptly notify the other party, in writing, setting forth the nature of the occurrence, its expected duration and how such party’s performance is affected. The failing or delaying party shall resume performance of its obligations hereunder as soon as practicable after the force majeure event ceases.
Events of Force Majeure None of the Parties shall be held liable or responsible to the other Parties nor be deemed to be in default under, or in breach of any provision of, this Agreement for failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any obligation of this Agreement when such failure or delay is due to force majeure, and without the fault or negligence of the Party so failing or delaying. For purposes of this Agreement, force majeure is defined as causes beyond the control of the Party, including, without limitation, acts of God; acts, regulations, or laws of any government; war; civil commotion; destruction of production facilities or materials by fire, flood, earthquake, explosion or storm; labor disturbances; epidemic; and failure of public utilities or common carriers. In such event the Company or ERS, as the case may be, shall immediately notify the other Parties of such inability and of the period for which such inability is expected to continue. The Party giving such notice shall thereupon be excused from such of its obligations under this Agreement as it is thereby disabled from performing for so long as it is so disabled and the 30 days thereafter. To the extent possible, each Party shall use reasonable efforts to minimize the duration of any force majeure
Notification of Force Majeure Event 11.5.1 The Affected Party shall give notice to the other Party of any event of Force Majeure as soon as reasonably practicable, but not later than seven (7) days after the date on which such Party knew or should reasonably have known of the commencement of the event of Force Majeure. If an event of Force Majeure results in a breakdown of communications rendering it unreasonable to give notice within the applicable time limit specified herein, then the Party claiming Force Majeure shall give such notice as soon as reasonably practicable after reinstatement of communications, but not later than one (1) day after such reinstatement.
Duration of Force Majeure An Interconnection Party shall not be responsible, or considered to be in Breach or Default under this Interconnection Service Agreement, for any non-performance, any interruption or failure of service, deficiency in the quality or quantity of service, or any other failure to perform any obligation hereunder to the extent that such failure or deficiency is due to Force Majeure. An Interconnection Party shall be excused from whatever performance is affected only for the duration of the Force Majeure and while the Interconnection Party exercises Reasonable Efforts to alleviate such situation. As soon as the non-performing Interconnection Party is able to resume performance of its obligations excused because of the occurrence of Force Majeure, such Interconnection Party shall resume performance and give prompt notice thereof to the other parties.
Notice of Force Majeure Event (a) The Affected Party shall give written notice to the other Party in writing of the occurrence of any of the Force Majeure Event (the “Notice”) as soon as the same arises or as soon as reasonably practicable and in any event within 7 (seven) Days after the Affected Party knew, or ought reasonably to have known, of its occurrence and the adverse effect it has or is likely to have on the performance of its obligations under this Agreement.
Definition of Force Majeure For the purposes of this section, an event of force majeure shall mean any cause beyond the control of the affected Interconnection Party or Construction Party, including but not restricted to, acts of God, flood, drought, earthquake, storm, fire, lightning, epidemic, war, riot, civil disturbance or disobedience, labor dispute, labor or material shortage, sabotage, acts of public enemy, explosions, orders, regulations or restrictions imposed by governmental, military, or lawfully established civilian authorities, which, in any of the foregoing cases, by exercise of due diligence such party could not reasonably have been expected to avoid, and which, by the exercise of due diligence, it has been unable to overcome. Force majeure does not include (i) a failure of performance that is due to an affected party’s own negligence or intentional wrongdoing; (ii) any removable or remediable causes (other than settlement of a strike or labor dispute) which an affected party fails to remove or remedy within a reasonable time; or (iii) economic hardship of an affected party.
Effect of Force Majeure Event If either party to this contract cannot meet an obligation under this contract because of an event outside the control of that party (‘a force majeure event’):
Available Relief for a Force Majeure Event No Party shall be in breach of its obligations pursuant to this agreement to the extent that the performance of its obligations was prevented, hindered or delayed due to a Force Majeure event. However, adjustment in tariff shall not be allowed on account of Force Majeure event. For avoidance of doubt, neither Party’s obligation to make payments of money due and payable prior to occurrence of Force Majeure events under this Agreement shall be suspended or excused due to the occurrence of a Force Majeure Event in respect of such Party.
Consequences of Force Majeure If the Affected Party has taken all necessary steps towards mitigating the effect of a Force Majeure event, then:
Notice of Force Majeure If performance is delayed as a result of Force Majeure, the affected party shall provide prompt Notice to the other party and shall be excused from default or delay in performance while such circumstances prevail so long as such party continues to use commercially reasonable efforts to recommence performance as soon as possible.
