(“Leap”) and and (2) include your distributed energy resources and systems (including but not limited to Clean Peak Resources) into an aggregation with Leap for the purpose of providing grid services to you directly or through an authorized partner.

End Customer Data Collection and Use.
a. You authorize Leap to collect any usage or consumption data obtained through your utility’s metering infrastructure, which includes energy meters and related systems, or distributed energy resources and systems directly, (“Energy Usage Data”), which may be associated with any information that can reasonably be used to identify you, your family, household residence, or non-residential customer, such as your first and last name, address, email address and account information (“Personal Information”) and other non-personal information, such as rate schedules, from the applicable utility. For the purposes listed in Section 2.b. Energy Usage Data and Personal Information are collectively referred to as “End Customer Data.”
