(1) Subject to subsection (2) and to the provisions of this article with respect to
proof of market price (section 84-2-723), the measure of damages for nonacceptance or repudiation by the buyer is the difference
between the market price at the time and place for tender and the unpaid contract
price together with any incidental damages provided in this article (section 84-2-710), but less expenses saved in consequence of the buyer's breach.
(2) If the measure of damages provided in subsection (1) is inadequate to put the
seller in as good a position as performance would have done then the measure of damages
is the profit (including reasonable overhead) which the seller would have made from
full performance by the buyer, together with any incidental damages provided in this
article (section 84-2-710), due allowance for costs reasonably incurred and due credit for payments or proceeds
