Electric market monitoring reporting forms

March 9, 2017

Please Note

  • Instructions for the new online system will be coming soon.

The Division of Planning and Market Analysis is required by 4901:1-25-02 of the Ohio Administrative Code to collect monthly information on a quarterly basis from:

  • Electric distribution utilities (EDU)
  • Competitive retail electric service (CRES) providers: certified electric utilities power marketers, power brokers, aggregators or independent power producers/distributed generators
  • Certified competitive electric cooperatives
  • Governmental aggregators

The purpose of these market monitoring requirements is to assist the PUCO in determining the extent to which effective competition exists for a competitive retail electric service.

Filing instructions

Beginning with the first quarter reports of 2017, all filers will be required to utilize the new online system to file their market monitoring report(s) electronically.  The PUCO will no longer accept the previously approved forms (MM Forms 1.1, 1.2, 1.2B, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6) via email.  Once logged into the system, filers will have the option to enter their data manually or upload it via an XML file.  Filers wishing to utilize the upload option can download the XML Schema Definition (XSD) templates below:
