Electric Do Not Aggregate List - Governmental Aggregator/Supplier Information
Section 4928.21 of the Ohio Revised Code directs the PUCO to develop and maintain on its Web site a “do not aggregate” (DNA) list of customers that desire to remove themselves from the pool of customers eligible to participate in an electric opt-out governmental aggregation program. The Commission adopted the process establishing the do not aggregate list on July 29, 2009.
The Commission’s DNA list is comprised of two separate files. One will display the names and service addresses of customers in each electric distribution utility service area that have registered for the DNA list and will be publicly available on the Commission’s website. The second file, called the “Governmental Aggregator/Supplier DNA List,” will be maintained in a password protected area of the Commission’s Web site and will only be available to Commission certified governmental aggregators and their designated suppliers. This list will display the names, service addresses, account numbers and registration date of customers in each electric distriution utility (EDU) service area that have registered for the DNA list and will be fully searchable. Instructions for obtaining a username and password to access the list are provided below.
Governmental aggregator requirements
Not more than 60 days prior to issuing its opt-out notice, a governmental aggregator that will aggregate customers via an opt-out process under Revised Code Section 4928.20 must access the Commission’s DNA list and remove from its pool of eligible customers all customer accounts that appear on the list.
In instances where a customer registers for the DNA list after the date when a governmental aggregator obtains the list, the governmental aggregator may include such accounts in its pool of eligible customers. The customer is then responsible to opt-out of the aggregation as specified by the opt-out notice provided by the governmental aggregator or to rescind enrollment by contacting the EDU as directed by the confirmation notice sent to the customer by the EDU pursuant to Rule 4901:1-10-29 (F), O.A.C.
Except as noted above, if a customer that has registered for the DNA list is included in an opt-out governmental aggregation, the governmental aggregator shall take all necessary steps to return the customer to its original supplier and make restitution to the customer, if warranted, in accordance with Rule 4901:1-21-17(E) O.A.C.
Governmental Aggregator/Supplier DNA List username and password
To obtain access to the Governmental Aggregator/Supplier DNA List, the regulatory contact of the PUCO certified governmental aggregator, or their designated supplier, must contact the Commission’s TTS Division using the contact form below or by phone at (614) 752-8019. The regulatory contact will be provided a unique username, password and information on how to enter the secure web page. Once accessed, the Governmental Aggregator/Supplier DNA List can be sorted as desired by the user. Governmental aggregators and suppliers are reminded that the use of customer account information on the DNA list for any purpose other than the removal of customer accounts from opt-out mailing lists is prohibited. For security purposes, the Commission staff will monitor access to the Governmental Aggregator/Supplier DNA List.
