AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

Meeting Date:           June 26, 2006

 

From:                          Paul Kalv, Director of Electric

 

Subject:                      Resolution to approve a Hold Harmless Agreement with Progress Energy

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the Hold Harmless Agreement with Progress Energy for Emergency Switching.

 

Analysis:

This is a continuation of the current “Hold Harmless Agreement” that will expire on August 2006.  The only change in this agreement is to eliminate a fixed term for the agreement.  Per section 7, the agreement may be terminated by either party with 60 days written notice.

 

Taken directly from the agreement, the document provides the following safeguards to Progress Energy as a result of Emergency Switching:

 

”In no event shall Progress Energy Florida, be liable to the Customer, its employees, agents or representatives, for any incidental, indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, punitive or multiple damages resulting from any claim or cause of action, whether brought in contract, tort (including, but not limited to, negligence or strict liability), or any other legal theory”.

 

Options:

1.  Approve Hold Harmless Agreement; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

None
