Electric market monitoring reporting

November 17, 2017

Please Note

  • November 17, 2017 - From 1.3 XSD Template (CRES) has been updated.

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.

Attention energy brokers - reporting required

If you are registered as an energy broker with the PUCO and DID NOT take title to energy in a given quarter, you are still required to complete your marketing monitoring reports, verifying that you have no reportable information pursuant to O.A.C. 4901:1-25-02(A)(3).

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 (these must be uploaded through the Online market monitoring application):
