Electric market monitoring reporting

Ohio Administrative Code 4901:1-25-02 requires EDUs, CRES marketers and aggregators, and governmental aggregators to report monthly market monitoring information to the PUCO on a quarterly basis. Specifically:

  • 4901:1-25-02(A)(2) for electric utilities (known as 1.2 data)
  • 4901:1-25-02(A)(3) for certified retail electric services companies (1.3 data)
  • 4901:1-25-02(A)(4) for certified aggregators and governmental aggregators (1.4 data)

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