Staff Comments on Consumer Protection Regulations

Staff filed reply comments on the proposed electric and natural gas consumer protection regulations. Staff argued that: 1) there should be a five day window for completion of enrollments and drops; 2) customer lists should be provided to suppliers and those customers that wish to be excluded should be given an opportunity to be removed from the list; 3) when it is necessary to cancel and rebill a customer, the issue should be carried forward three years if necessary (the same period available for utility customers); 4) if a utility provides bill view access to its customers, it should also provide bill view access to the customers' competitive suppliers; 5) the supplier, rather than the utility, should provide the customer with notice of enrollment and notice of cancellation. The full text of Staff's Comments is available on the NEM Website.
