TERMS & CONDITIONS
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE (SOLERUS ENERGY LLC.)
By purchasing from Solerus Energy LLC., its affiliates or assigns (“Seller”), Customer agrees to these Terms and Conditions of Sale:
All sales of Materials shall be made only upon these Terms and Conditions of Sale and NOT any purchase order or other document of Customer. Seller’s failure to object to any terms which conflict with these Terms and Conditions shall not be deemed a waiver of objection thereto. Any change to these Terms and Conditions must be specifically agreed to in writing by a duly authorized representative of Seller. Seller reserves the right to correct any typographical error or decline orders. Seller reserves the right to assign the order, its rights, or delegate its performance in whole or in part hereunder. Customer, however, shall not assign its rights or duties hereunder without the express prior written consent of Seller.
Prices are subject to change without notice and do not include taxes, duties, freight, or packaging. Seller’s quotations are open for acceptance within 3 days of the quotation ate. Seller reserves the right to amend pricing to correct errors or omissions. Customs, duties, taxes shall be responsibility of Customer.
Delivery to Customer occurs when Materials are delivered to Customer, the carrier or Customer’s agent at Seller’s warehouse, whichever occurs first. Delivery dates are best estimates only and time is expressly not of the essence. Late or partial delivery does not entitle Customer to cancel its order. Seller shall not be liable for any damage or injury arising from a delay in delivery. In the event of delivery by installments, Customer is not entitled to treat the delivery of faulty Materials in any one installment as a repudiation of the entire agreement.
Customer shall inspect the original packaging within 3 days of the delivery date to determine that the correct product was shipped and received in good condition. Unless Customer notifies Seller within such 3 days specifying any obvious damage or defect or other objection to materials, it shall be conclusively deemed, as between Customer and Seller, that Customer has fully inspected and acknowledges that the materials comply with the purchase order.
5. WARRANTY AND RETURNS
SELLER MAKES NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE CONDITION, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ANY OTHER MATTER CONCERNING THE MATERIALS AND CUSTOMER ACCEPTS THE MATERIALS “AS IS, WHERE IS”.
Seller makes no representation concerning patents, trademarks, trade names or service marks (collectively “Patents”) of any of its Materials. Seller’s obligation for patent infringement is expressly limited to any indemnification which Seller’s vendor of the Materials has agreed in writing to provide (or by operation of law has been deemed to provide) to Seller.
SELLER DOES NOT ADOPT OR AFFIRM ANY WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MADE BY THE MANUFACTURERS OF ANY OF THE MATERIALS. Where available and assignable, Seller may transfer any warranties it receives from the manufacturer of the Materials to Customer. If any item to which a warranty applies proves to be defective during the specified warranty period under normal and proper use, storage, installation and maintenance in accordance with the directives, instructions and specifications of the manufacturer and such defect is not caused by a force majeure event, Seller, in its sole discretion shall assist Buyer to obtain replacement products that are not defective from the manufacturer.
From time to time, Seller may assist in providing information for rebates. Seller assumes no responsibility for the completeness or correctness of the rebate information, form or application and makes no warranty about the success of such application or the accuracy of the estimated rebate or grant amount, or the amount of the grant or rebate actually received, even if due to Seller’s error or negligence.
IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIMS ALLEGING NEGLIGENCE OR WORSE OR FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LABOR ON LOCATION, SERVICE CALLS, REINSTALLATION, SHIPPING AND/OR PACKAGING EXPENSES TO RETURN MATERIALS, STORAGE COSTS, LOSS OF INCOME, PROFITS, OPPORTUNITY OR GOODWILL), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT SELLER HAS ADVANCE NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN ANY EVENT, SELLER’S MAXIMUM LIABILITY SHALL NEVER EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE FOR MATERIALS WHICH ARE THE SUBJECT OF THE CLAIM, WHETHER OR NOT THE MATERIALS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED OR MADE A PART OF THE IMPROVEMENT TO REAL OR PERSONAL PROPERTY.
No Materials may be returned without the express written approval of Seller and the receipt of Seller’s RMA number. All returns shall be subject to Seller’s then current RMA Policy and the failure to comply with such shall be reason for rejection of any RMA request. If approved, returns are for credit only and shall be subject to a restocking charge of 15% plus shipping charges. Unless otherwise instructed by Seller’s CEO or VP, Operations, Materials approved for return must be returned in original packaging within 20 days of Seller’s issuance of the RMA number, freight pre-paid, clearly marked with Seller’s RMA number and be accompanied with a copy of Seller’s invoice. Application of the warranty, if any, shall be determined by Seller technical staff after return, inspection and if necessary, an investigation of the claim. Any unauthorized returns shall be returned to Customer at Customer’s sole cost and expense.
7. CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULES
All sales are final. Special orders, non-stock, or custom built items are non-cancelable, non-returnable. Any requests to cancel or reschedule orders must be agreed to in writing and may or may not be accepted in Seller’s absolute discretion. Without waiving any of its rights, Seller is entitled to recover its costs incurred and profits lost as a result of Customer’s cancellation or rescheduling of an order.
Payments are due on demand but in any case must be paid without offset or deduction. If Customer is approved for credit, such payment shall be due no later than 30 days of the date of invoice. Interest at 18% per annum (or the maximum rate allowed by law if less) will be payable on any amount outstanding for longer than 30 days. If Customer fails to timely and properly pay or perform any obligations to Seller, Customer (i) Customer shall be obligated to pay immediately all other sums then or thereafter owing by Customer to Seller and (ii) Seller may stop all shipments of Materials to or for the benefit of Customer and withhold all performances by Seller until all of Customer’s failures of performance have been fully cured and rectified. Customer shall be responsible for all reasonable legal fees, costs and expenses incurred by Seller if Customer’s late payment results in collection efforts.
9. SECURITY INTEREST
Seller shall have a purchase money security interest in all Materials, and to any proceeds from the disposition of the Materials, until all of Customer’s obligations arising from the sale of such Materials have been fully paid and performed. Customer agrees to execute any financial statements or other documents which Seller may request in order to protect Seller’s security interest. Customer expressly authorizes Seller to execute such security documents on Customer’s behalf and hereby designates Seller its attorney-in-fact for such limited purposes. In addition to the rights and remedies granted by these Terms and Conditions, Seller shall have all rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code, which rights shall be cumulative.
Customer, in the ordinary course of its business, shall be entitled to resell Materials in which Seller has retained a security interest as long as Customer promptly pays for such Materials and applies all amounts received for such Materials to its payment obligations to Seller for such Materials. All payment rights arising from the resale of such Materials or otherwise (such as, for example, payment rights under insurance policies) shall be and hereby are collaterally assigned to Seller. Seller may require Customer to disclose all pertinent facts as to any assigned receivable(s) and may notify, and assert the assigned claim as to, any third party. Customer shall retain the right to collect such receivables as long as Customer performs its obligations to Seller with respect thereto. Amounts collected by Customer upon such assigned receivables shall be immediately paid to Seller and Customer shall not use any such amounts for its own account or benefit.
10. REPRESENTATIONS OF PERFORMANCE

Seller’s performance is expressly in reliance of these representations and warranties. Promptly upon Seller’s demand, Customer shall provide adequate assurance of Customer’s ability to perform and a failure to do so shall constitute a breach giving rise to Seller’s remedies.
