not been handled, monitored, stored, installed, protected, operated, or maintained in accordance
with Power Systems’ specifications, instructions, recommendations, or industry standard
practices.

The Power Systems’ warranty obligation shall also be void as it relates to any non-conformity

or repairs have been made by Customer or a third party without the prior written consent of Power
Systems

remedy for any failure of Power Systems to meet the design, material and workmanship standards
necessary to meet the Customer’s Specification criteria. As such, correction of any confirmed
non-conformity in the manner and for the period of time provided herein shall fully insulate Power
Systems from any liability under this warranty section, whether the claims of the Customer are
based in contract, tort (including negligence and strict liability), indemnity, or any other legal
theory with respect to or arising out of the Product.

Product or part thereof with respect to which it intends to make a claim under the foregoing
warranty, without the prior written authorization of Power Systems

If the Product is exported or shipped outside the ten (10) provinces and three (3) territories of
Canada for installation or commissioning, Power Systems warrants that the product supplied
hereunder will be free from defects in design, workmanship, and materials. If Customer notifies
Power Systems of any failure to conform to this warranty within the warranty period and delivers
the defective Product to Power Systems’ manufacturing plant or the location designated by Power
Systems, freight prepaid, Power Systems will correct confirmed non-conformities, at its option by
repair or replacing the defective part or parts and delivering the product to the purchaser F.O.B.

THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS ARTICLE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND NO OTHER
WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER STATUTORY, ORAL, WRITTEN, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, OR WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE,
SHALL APPLY. THE CUSTOMER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES AND POWER SYSTEMS’ ONLY
OBLIGATIONS ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH DEFECTIVE PRODUCT, WHETHER
BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE SHALL
BE THOSE STATED HEREIN.

Products supplied by Power Systems, but manufactured by others, are warranted only to the
extent of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Extended Warranty: Extended warranty coverage may be purchased separately at the time of
order that continues warranty coverage beyond the expiration of the Standard Warranty period,
applicable ONLY to the coils and core. All other Terms and Conditions applicable to the Standard
Warranty period continue in full force and effect during the Extended Warranty period.

As part of the extended warranty coverage, there are additional Customer requirements that must
be satisfied. The Customer is required to provide evidence to Power Systems within ten (10)
business days that validates the date of first use (“energization”) of the Product for which
extended warranty coverage has been purchased. The Customer, at their sole expense, must
comply, at a minimum, with the following two preventive maintenance inspection tasks;
submitting documented results to Power Systems within ten (10) business days of each of the
multiple inspection dates:
        1) prior to energization, conduct a physical inspection of the Product for visible leaks and
record the readings of each of the gauges (Oil Thermometer, Liquid Level Gauge, Pressure
Vacuum Gauge, etc.) to serve as a BASELINE inspection; repeat this physical inspection with
each successive Dissolved Gas Analysis sample as described just below; clearly visible
photographs are acceptable documentation for these physical inspections; and,
        2) prior to energization, take a Dissolved Gas Analysis (DGA) sample to serve as a
BASELINE sample; followed by additional preventive maintenance DGA samples at three (3)
months, six (6) months, and twelve (12) months following the date of first use (“energization”).
Additionally, subsequent DGA samples are then required to be taken by the Customer, at the
Customer’s sole expense, every twelve (12) months after the first twelve (12) months following
first use (“energization”) until the Extended Warranty period expires.

A maintenance log is provided by Power Systems for the Customer’s convenience at the back of
the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Instruction Manual. All DGA sampling must be taken
properly by qualified personnel. Power Systems can assist with training for these sampling tasks.
Additional DGA samples may be required to be taken by the Customer, at the Customer’s sole
expense, if sample results should bring the Product’s condition into question.

in the delay in question.

manner as Customer.

Ownership or legal title to the Product sold by Power Systems to Customer shall pass to the Customer at
the earlier of invoicing date or shipment date. Risk of loss of the Product, or any part of same, shall also

claims, demands, liens, or encumbrances; or, alternatively, insure the Product for its full replacement
value at Customer’s own expense with Power Systems being included under any such policy as an
additional insured and/or to the extent that Customer owes Power Systems any amount under the
purchase order, holding the proceeds of any insurance claim in respect of the Product in trust for Power
Systems

timely pay all amounts owed under the purchase order for the Product, Power Systems may at any time
take possession of the Product delivered to Customer and sell it. If Power Systems takes possession of
the Product and sells it, Customer continues to be liable to Power Systems for an amount equal to the
aggregate of the unpaid amounts and costs and expenses incurred by Power Systems in taking
possession of, transporting, storing, and selling the Product less an amount equal to the proceeds of the
sale.

calendar days of written order acknowledgement, whichever occurs later, the order shall be subject to
renegotiation of price and shipment terms as applicable. If at drawing approval, Power Systems has
failed to design the Product in accordance with the Customer’s Specification, Power Systems will, at its
own expense, make the appropriate changes. Where Customer’s Specifications are not sufficiently
detailed, Power Systems reserves the right to design the Product in accordance with their professional
best judgment and good commercial practices. If at any time the Customer makes changes to the


                                                                                                       Page 7 of 11

      receipt of customer supplied material. Such delays will be subject to possible price adjustments due
      to customer induced delays and disruptions.
      (ii) Customer is responsible for supplying Power Systems with all applicable technical data and
      drawings (in sufficient detail as determined by Power Systems) at time of order entry, so as to

      Customer supplied material.
      (iii) Errors by Customer to supply the correct material per the detailed technical data supplied at

Specifically, these usual service conditions include the following:
  (i) The transformer is designed for step down duty.
  (ii) The transformer is designed for operation at the rated kVA, at 3300 feet altitude, without exceeding
        temperature limits, provided the average temperature of the ambient air does not exceed the limits
        as listed below. The dielectric strength of the bushings and arresters will be suitable to allow
        satisfactory operation at 3300 feet.
  (iii) The maximum temperature of the ambient air should not exceed 40 degree C and the average
        temperature of the ambient air, for any 24 hour period, should not exceed 30 degree C.
  (iv) The input voltage when applied to any rated tap, at rated frequency, should not result in an output
        voltage greater than 110% at no load, and 105% at rated output load. The output load power factor
        must be 80% or better.
  (v) When unusual or special service conditions, such as damaging or explosive vapors, abnormal
        vibrations, shocks, transportation, storage conditions, poor wave form, unbalanced voltage, or
        planned regular short circuits exist, or service conditions other than those described in (i), (ii), (iii),
        and (iv) just above, it is the responsibility of the purchaser to bring these conditions to the attention
        of Power Systems at the time a quotation is requested by the Customer from Power Systems

 Failure by Customer to expressly provide advance notice to Power Systems of any unusual or special
service conditions which do not meet the above may render the product warranty null and void.

 In the event of any dispute arising out of or in connection with the present product order, the parties shall
attempt in good faith to resolve all disputes promptly by negotiation as follows. Any party may give the
other party written notice of any dispute not resolved in the normal course of business. Executives and
/or personnel of both parties shall meet at a mutually acceptable time and place within ten (10) business
days after delivery of such notice, and thereafter as often as they reasonably deem necessary, to
exchange relevant information and to attempt to resolve the dispute. If the matter has not been resolved
within sixty (60) calendar days from the referral of the dispute or if no meeting has taken place within
thirty (30) calendar days after such referral, either party may initiate mediation as provided hereinafter. If
a negotiator intends to be accompanied at a meeting by a legal representative, the other negotiator shall
be given at least three (3) business days notice of such intention and may also be accompanied by a
legal representative. All negotiations pursuant to this Section are confidential and shall be treated as
compromise and settlement negotiations for legal purposes.




                                                                                                   Page 10 of 11

                                         Effective Date: November 2011

In the event that any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms and Conditions of Sale is not
resolved in accordance with the procedures established just above, such dispute shall be submitted to
private, non-binding mediation to another mutually agreed upon mediator. Such mediator shall be
selected from the then current list of approved Canadian mediators.

If the mediation process has not resolved the dispute within sixty (60) calendar days of the submission of
the matter to mediation or within such longer period as to which the parties may agree, the dispute shall
be decided by binding arbitration as set forth below.

Any mediation that takes place pursuant to these Terms and Conditions of Sale shall be conducted
according to the then current provincial mediation procedures, whichever apply, unless some other
process or procedure is mutually agreed upon by the parties.

All disputes in question not resolved by non-binding mediation between Power Systems and the
Customer, shall be submitted to private, binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted in
accordance with the then current Construction Industry Arbitration Rules or Commercial Arbitration Rules,
as applicable, then in effect, or a mutually agreed upon set of arbitration rules. This agreement to
arbitrate and any other agreement or consent to arbitrate entered into in accordance herewith will be
specifically enforceable by any court having jurisdiction. Notice of demand for arbitration must be filed in
writing with the other party to this Agreement. The demand must be made within a reasonable time after
the dispute has arisen. In no event may the demand for arbitration be made if the institution of legal or
equitable proceedings based on such dispute is barred by the applicable statute of limitations, or these
Terms and Conditions of Sale. Any arbitration may be consolidated with any other arbitration
proceedings. The arbitrator will have no authority to award attorneys’ fees, punitive or treble damages to
any party, nor may the arbitrator award any damages or amounts or assess any costs against Power
Systems (including its parent company, shareholders, affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, officers,
employees, successors and/or assigns) which may be considered as excluded or limited by other
Sections of these Terms and Conditions of Sale.

The award of the arbitrator shall be specifically enforceable in a court of competent jurisdiction. If the
total Dispute, exclusive of interest and arbitration costs, does not equal or exceed ONE Million Canadian
dollars, the arbitration shall be heard by one neutral arbitrator. If the total dispute equals or exceeds ONE
Million Canadian dollars, then the arbitration shall be heard by three neutral arbitrators.

The procedures for the resolution of Disputes set forth herein shall be the sole and exclusive procedures
for the resolution of Disputes, however, that a party may seek a preliminary injunction or other preliminary
judicial relief if in its judgment such action is necessary to avoid irreparable damage or to preserve the
status quo. Despite such action, the parties will continue to participate in good faith as per the procedures
specified herein.
