What is the law regarding early termination damages?

Question Details: I switched providers for my small business gas service. We decided to rescind and it was within the 10 business days they allowed us. Under the rescission clause, it was stated there would be no penalty, however they just sent us a bill stating that we owe thousands in early termination damages. Under the termination clause, it was stated that they called that termination damage a recovery cost that is not a penalty. Would I still owe the money if that cost was not made clear under the rescission clause?
