"Many" retail electric and natural gas suppliers and brokers have failed to pay the new annual licensing fee imposed by the Pennsylvania PUC, the Commission said in a Secretarial letter.
An April order established a fee structure for the annual fee based on: (1) EGS and NGS gross intrastate operating revenues and (2) a minimum fee of $350 from each EGS and NGS firm regardless of reported gross intrastate operating revenues (including brokers).
The $350 minimum fee was due to the Commission by July 1, 2015.
"[D]ue to inaccurate billing address information many EGSs and NGSs have failed to pay the $350 minimum fee to the Commission," the PUC said.
"The Commission reminds suppliers that it is the responsibility of the supplier, as part of its license to do business in Pennsylvania, to maintain updated and current contact information with the Secretary of the Commission," the PUC said.
"All EGS and NGS firms that have not yet paid the $350 minimum fee MUST REMIT PAYMENT TO THE COMMISSION NO LATER THAN August 15, 2015," the PUC said.
