      of _______________, 2011.

1.2   Definitions

      Capitalized terms used and not defined in this Schedule, shall have the same meaning as

      not defined in the Agreement shall have the ordinary meaning given to it.

                     ARTICLE 2- SCOPE OF CONTRACT SERVICES

2.1   Description of Scope of Contract Services

      The Service Provider represents and warrants that it is a power financial swap market
      participant with the capability to enter into supply transactions with the Service Receiver
      for central clearing utilizing the OTC services of the NGX clearing system, in order to
      supply any block energy requirements the Service Receiver may have at the close of each
      monthly procurement window, as defined by the RRO Regulation, which requirements
      have not been filled by the Service Receiver through the EPSP procurement protocols.

      The Parties agree to comply with the following requirements:

      2.1.1    Backstopping

      (a)     In the event that through the NGX Protocol for Block Volume NGX Auction
              Sessions provided in Schedule “C” the Service Receiver does not fill the Supply
              Requirement, a minimum of two (2) Business Days per calendar month before the
              end of each Procurement Period, the Service Receiver will notify the Service
              Provider by email of the Backstop Quantity, the Backstop Price.

      (b)     Upon such notification, the Service Provider is required to fill the Backstop
              Quantity. The Backstop Quantity may be filled by the Service Provider at or below
              the Backstop Price. In the event that the Service Provider is unable to fill the
              Backstop Quantity at or below the Backstop Price, the Service Provider shall fill
              the Backstop Quantity at the Alternate Backstop Price. If the Backstop Quantity is
              filled at the Alternate Backstop Price, the Service Provider must be able to
              demonstrate the reasonableness and prudence of the Alternate Backstop Price in
              accordance with the criteria established in Schedule “A” Section 2.1.4. The
              deadline for the completion of all Transactions will be 15:00 (Edmonton, Alberta
              time) of the last Business Day of the Procurement Period.

      (c)     The Service Provider is required to notify the Service Receiver by email of the
              Execution Quantity and Execution Prices for each Lot before the end of the
              Procurement Period.


                                             Page 2 of 4
(d)   If the Service Provider fails to either fill the Backstop Quantity, notify the Service
      Receiver of the Execution Quantity and Execution Price, or demonstrate prudence
      in pricing by the end of the Backstop Period, the Service Provider will be deemed
      by the Service Receiver to have filled the Backstop Quantity at the Deemed Price,
      which Deemed Price will become the Execution Price for completing the
      requirements of Schedule “A” Sections 2.1.1(e) and (f). For clarity, the Service
      Provider will be required to perform the requirements of Schedule “A” Sections
      2.1.1(e) and (f) even if they are deemed by the Service Receiver to have filled the
      Backstop Quantity at the Deemed Price.

(e)   Within two (2) Business Days of a Transaction being completed, the Service
      Provider will clear the Execution Price plus the applicable Transaction Fee
      included in Schedule “B” Article 3 Section 3.1 by submitting details of the OTC
      Transaction to the NGX clearing system. Upon confirmation by the Service
      Receiver of the Service Provider’s OTC Transaction request, NGX will process the
      OTC Transaction through the NGX clearing system. NGX will then invoice the
      Service Receiver for the Execution Price plus the applicable Transaction Fee,
      according to NGX’s regular invoicing protocols.

(f)   Upon confirmation by NGX through its website reporting system that the OTC
      Transaction described in Schedule “A” Section 2.1.1(e) has been accepted, the
      obligations of the Service Receiver and the Service Provider under this Agreement
      for the relevant month will be considered to be performed.

(g)   If the Service Provider fails to meet the requirements in Schedule “A” Sections
      2.1.1(e) and (f), upon completion of the Delivery Period, the Service Receiver will
      either invoice or pay the Service Provider directly depending on whether the
      variance between the Execution Prices (Flat and Peak) and the Average Monthly
      Flat Pool Prices and the Average Monthly Peak Pool Prices are negative or
      positive. If the Execution Price (Flat or Peak) is less than the applicable Average
      (Flat and Peak) Monthly Pool Price, the Service Provider shall reimburse the
      Service Receiver for the difference between the Execution Price and the applicable
      Average Monthly Pool Price. If the Execution Price (Flat or Peak) is greater than
      the applicable Average Monthly Pool Price, the Service Receiver shall reimburse
      the Service Provider for the difference between the Execution Price and the
      applicable Average Monthly Pool Price.

(h)   If the Service Provider fails to meet any of the requirements in Schedule “A”
      Sections 2.1.1(e) and (f), the Service Receiver shall not pay to the Service Provider
      any Transaction Fee(s) related to the Backstop Quantity.

(i)   The Service Receiver is not obligated to any minimum quantity and it is
      acknowledged by the Parties that there may be instances in any month where the
      Backstop Quantity is zero.

2.1.2   Firm Obligations

The Service Provider is required to submit the OTC Transactions described in Schedule
“A” Section 2.1.1(e) and any failure to do so by the Service Provider will lead to direct
and indirect replacement costs to the Service Receiver that will be payable by the Service
Provider to the Service Receiver as a result of this Agreement.

2.1.3   NGX Clearing

The Service Receiver and the Service Provider agree that both parties to this Agreement
must remain in good standing with NGX and must actively be eligible to submit
transactions for clearing of Alberta financial power swaps throughout the term of this
Agreement. For greater clarity, the Service Provider will not be engaged to provide the
Contract Services if the Service Provider is not in good standing with the NGX.

2.1.4   Alternate Backstop Price Criteria

[NTD: Upon selection of the Service Provider, language will be added to this
Schedule “A” setting forth how such Service Provider will demonstrate that the
Alternate Backstop Price was ascertained in a prudent and reasonable fashion.]
