Your work may cause damage to our assets, stop us from operating our power schemes or gas facilities, and may stop us supplying electricity or gas to the market and our customers. If you or anyone else damages or compromises the integrity of our assets, you and the parties responsible may be liable for the cost to rectify the damage and may be liable for liquidated damages, such as the costs of not being able to supply electricity or gas to the market and our customers.
