These terms and conditions of sale (these "Terms"), together with the Home Improvement Contract and/or Proposal (collectively, the "Proposal" or the "Contract") to which these Terms are attached are the only terms which govern the sale of the generator and related products, components and parts (collectively, the "Goods") and provision of services, including installation of the Goods ("Services") identified on the Proposal. These Terms and the Contract (together, this "Agreement") comprise the entire agreement between West Coast Energy Systems LLC (d/b/a Golden State Power Solutions) ("Seller") and the customer named in the Contract ("Customer"), and supersede all prior or contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations and warranties, and communications, both written and oral. Seller objects to any different or additional terms contained in any other document sent or to be sent by Customer, which are expressly rejected. Other than an exercise by Customer of its three-day right to cancel as set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement may only be amended or modified in a writing stating specifically that it amends this Agreement and is signed by each party. If Customer signs up for the Mobile Link Monitoring service, such service is governed by separate subscription terms and conditions.
Seller shall install the Goods at Customer's premises (the "Premises") as identified in the Proposal, using Seller's standard methods. Seller agrees to complete the installation of the Goods, subject to this Agreement, and shall use reasonable efforts to meet any performance dates identified in the Proposal, which are estimates only, subject to the availability of the Goods and receipt of the necessary permits for installation of the Goods. Seller shall not be liable for any delays. Customer shall (i) cooperate with Seller in all matters relating to the Services and provide such access to the Premises, including supplying the necessary utilities for installation of the Goods, and such accommodation as may reasonably be requested by Seller, for the purposes of performing the Services; and (ii) respond promptly to any Seller request to provide direction, information, approvals, authorizations, or decisions that are necessary for Seller to perform Services.
Title and risk of loss passes to Customer upon installation of the Goods at the Premises. As collateral security for the payment of the purchase price under the Agreement, Customer hereby grants to Seller a lien on and security interest in and to all of the right, title and interest of Customer in, to and under the Goods, wherever located, and whether now existing or hereafter arising or acquired from time to time, and in all accessions thereto and replacements or modifications thereof, as well as all proceeds (including insurance proceeds) of the foregoing. The security interest granted under this paragraph constitutes a purchase money security interest under the California Uniform Commercial Code.
If Seller's performance of its obligations under this Agreement is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of Customer, Seller shall not be deemed in breach of its obligations under this Agreement or otherwise liable for any costs or losses sustained or incurred by Customer, in each case, to the extent arising directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.
Customer shall purchase the Goods and Services from Seller at the price(s) set forth in the Proposal (the "Price"). The Price is exclusive of all sales, use, and excise taxes, and any other similar taxes, duties, and charges of any kind imposed on any amounts payable by Customer. Seller will obtain all required building permits, at the sole expense of the Customer. Upon demand by the Seller, the Customer shall provide funds to acquire any and all necessary permits in a timely fashion. Customer will pay assessments and charges required by public bodies and utilities for financing or repaying the cost of sewers, storm drains, water service, schools and school facilities, other utilities, hook-up charges and the like.
Customer shall pay the Price at such times and in such amounts as are set forth in the Proposal. Customer shall pay interest on all late payments at the lesser of the rate of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permissible under applicable law, calculated daily and compounded monthly. Customer shall reimburse Seller for all costs incurred in collecting late payments, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees. In addition to all other remedies available under this Agreement or at law (which Seller does not waive by the exercise of any rights hereunder), Seller shall be entitled to suspend the installation of the Goods or performance of any Services if Customer fails to pay any amounts when due hereunder.
