TX PUC revamps ERCOT switching rules, effective 8/16/09

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

ERCOT resi and small commercial customers will have new switching rules starting 8/16/09 for most territories (TDU’s have until 12/1 to complete changes).  Notes:

  • On ‘standard’ switch (formerly ‘on-cycle’), a customer’s first-available switch date FASD will be set 3 business days after switch received at ERCOT.  No special fees, no ‘waive notification’ option,
  • If the normal read date is -3 or +3 days after FASD, that read will be used.  If outside that 7 day window, then a physical read will be made on one of the 4 days after the FASD (TDSP’s have until 12/1/09 to implement).
  • The standard switch will be made 4 days after ERCOT receives the switch.
  • On ‘self-selected’ switch (formerly ‘off-cycle’), a customer is switched on the date selected by the REP, and TDSP fees apply.
  • The rescission postcard to customers is replaced by a notification postcard (no option to rescind).
  • TDSP’s must have a certain percentage of actual reads (reducing estimated reads) by 12/1/2009.

A little Vodka with that Electric Choice?

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Russia has entered the electric de-regulation world:

[Russia] Electric industry restructuring was essentially completed on July 1, 2008 and 20 of the 21 newly-created generation companies are to be privatized with many of them already having been privatized attracting both Russian and foreign (E.On, Enel, Fortum and other companies) investors. Since September 2006, wholesale and retail power markets have also come into force as wholesale electricity (capacity) market transitioned to regulated contracts concluded between buyers and sellers where prices are regulated by the Federal Tariff Service and a spot market-day ahead (DAM) was launched. In April 2007, regulated contracts were due to be replaced by unregulated ones but not until 2011 will electric power be sold at competitive retail prices.
