|Contract Unit||80 Megawatt hours (MWh) (5 MW per peak hour).|
|Price Quotation||The contract quantity shall be 80 megawatt hours (MWH) and is based on 5 megawatts (MW) for Peak Hours. Each futures contract shall be valued at the contract quantity multiplied by the final settlement price (as per Rule 760.08). Transaction sizes for trading in any contract month shall be restricted to whole number multiples of the number of Peak Days in the month.|
|Floating Price||The "Floating Price" will be determined for each contract month as follows: The Floating Price will be equal to the arithmetic average of all daily prices in the contract month of the Dow Jones Mead/Marketplace Electricity Price IndexSM (the "Index"), as published by CME Group Index Services LLC, for Firm Energy traded during Peak Hours (each as defined in Rule 760.03) (the "Firm On-peak Index").
The Firm On-peak Index averages together blocks of power sold in bilateral, wholesale, physical transactions for power on a day-ahead pre-scheduled basis, and does not include real-time power. Transactions included in the Firm On-peak Index are limited to power traded in 16-hour blocks during Peak Hours. Transactions are quoted in dollars per megawatt hour ($/MWH). The daily price of the Firm On-peak Index corresponds to transactions for power delivered on such date.
|Termination of Trading||Trading shall cease on the last business day of the contract month.|

|Final Settlement||Delivery under the Dow Jones Mead/Marketplace Electricity Price Index 5 MW Peak Futures contract shall be by cash settlement.

(Note that, although Firm On-peak Index daily prices are published for Sundays, Sundays are not included within the meaning of “Peak Days” for the purposes of the contract or in the calculation of the average of Peak Day daily prices and in the determination of permitted transaction sizes.)
