The Cooperative shall use due diligence in the operation and maintenance of its facilities so as to provide safe, adequate, and uninterrupted service. However, the Cooperative shall not be liable to the Member, nor shall the Member be liable to the Cooperative by reason of the failure of the Cooperative to deliver, or the Member to receive, electricity as a result of injunction, fire, riot, strike, explosion, flood, accident, breakdown, acts of God, or the public enemy or other acts or conditions reasonably beyond the control of the party affected.

The Cooperative shall not be liable for damages occasioned by interruptions of service, when such interruptions are necessary, to make repairs or changes in the Cooperative’s equipment and facilities.
