New Service/Tank Lease Agreement


Mailing Address Delivery Address (If Different)


If leasing an LP tank, the customer is required to purchase a minimum amount of propane within a year of this agreement date. Further, customer must purchase the minimum amount of propane gas each year thereafter. (As outlined in the current Davenport Energy Payment terms and Options) If customer does not purchase the required propane during the allotted time, he/she will be billed a tank rental fee as outlined in our Delivery Policy and Payment terms. If customer discontinues service for any reason within a 12 month period of the date of this agreement, a tank pick-up fee and forfeiture of tank contents applies. If service is discontinued after 12-months a pick-up fee only will apply.

Fire code requires that all LP tanks that experience an out-of-gas situation must have a leak test performed prior to admitting gas back into the system. If account is current, automatic delivery customers are not charged for this test. Will call customers will be charged a fee for each leak test performed. Customers owning own tanks must inform Davenport Energy if customer has accepted LP delivery from another company between Davenport Energy deliveries.

In the event the customer and property owner where service will be rendered are not one and the same; customer warrants that it has obtained from the property owner all necessary approvals for installation of propane service, the tank(s), and all necessary appurtenances. Customer shall indemnify and hold Davenport Energy harmless for any unauthorized installation of propane service due to customer’s failure to secure the authorization of the property owner.

Customer further agrees not to allow tanks and/or appurtenances necessary for propane service, owned by Davenport Energy, to be filled or serviced by any party other than Davenport Energy.
