HB 2104 Introduced

House Consumer Affairs Committee Chair Godshall introduced legislation, HB 2104, on retail electric consumer protection. The bill contains a number of restrictions on variable and fixed rate product offerings. Variable rate contracts to residential and small commercial customers are to be for a term of no less than six months, with no cancellation or early termination fees. Fixed rate contracts to residential and small commercial customers are to be for a term of no less than twelve months, and if the contract is for a term of less than twenty four months, may not include a cancellation fee or early termination fee. Variable rate contracts must also include an explanation of the method or formula used to set the rate, a statement that variable rates are subject to change, and a website or phone number at which the customer can get variable rate product pricing information. In addition, a variable rate may not be increased more than once every six months and not by more than 100% of the rate charged during the preceding six month period.

EGSs providing residential/small commercial customer service would be required to post an annual price history for each variable and fixed rate product for the preceding year. The full text of HB2104 is available on the NEM Website.
