Point of Delivery means the location at which the consumer’s service facilities are connected to Holy Cross facilities and electric energy can be delivered by Holy Cross to the consumer. The point of delivery for overhead service is where the consumer service conductors connect to Holy Cross’s service drop and at pad-mounted transformer secondary connectors for underground service unless otherwise specified by Holy Cross.

All wires and equipment, except Holy Cross’s meters and accessories, on the consumer’s side of the point of delivery must be installed and maintained at the expense of the consumer. All wires, apparatus and equipment shall be selected with a view to obtaining safety, good efficiency, good voltage regulation, and the highest practical power factor, and shall comply with Holy Cross’s Consumer Service Facilities Metering and Use Guidebook, Holy Cross’s Generator Interconnect Policy and the National Electric Code of the National Board of Fire Underwriters and the regulations of any governmental authority having jurisdiction. No consumer shall employ or use any equipment, appliance or device that will adversely affect Holy Cross’s service to the consumer or to other consumers. Maximum loads to be supplied on single-phase circuits shall be in accordance with the Service Standards of Holy Cross. Appropriate starting control devices for motors shall be installed. All consumers shall arrange their loads so that there will be, at the point of delivery, a reasonable electric load balance between the phases of a polyphase circuit and between the two sides of a single-phase three wire circuit.

The consumer assumes all responsibility on consumer’s side of the point of delivery for service supplied or taken, as well as for the electrical installation and appliances used in connection therewith, and will indemnify, save harmless and defend Holy Cross against all claims, demands, cost or expense, for loss, damage or injury to persons or property, in any manner directly or indirectly connected with, or growing out of, the transmission or use of electric service by the consumer, at or on the consumer’s side of the point of delivery.
