Staff of the Public Utility Commission of Texas filed a petition to "correct" the REP certificate number granted to Eligo Energy TX, LLC
On May 24, 2017, a Notice of Approval was issued in Docket No. 46775, which granted an Option I REP Certificate, No. 10247, to Eligo Energy TX, LLC. On June 8, 2017, a Notice of Approval was issued in Docket No. 47039, which granted an Option III REP Certification, No. 10247, to Solar Star Plano I, LLC.
"As REP Certificate No. 10247 was issued to two different REPs, Staff requests that the Commission change Eligo Energy TX, LLC's REP Certificate No. from 10247 to 10246," Staff said in its petition
Note that while a certificate number may have been "skipped" in granting Eligo Certificate No. 10247, granting Eligo Certificate No. 10247 in and of itself did not present any problems, insofar as Eligo was the first and only entity assigned such number at the time the number was granted to Eligo
Eligo's website lists Texas service as coming soon.
REPs are required to include their certificate number on a variety of collateral and customer-facing materials.
For example, all printed advertisements, electronic advertising over the Internet, and websites, shall include the REP’s certified name or commission authorized business name, and the number of the certification or registration.
For outdoor advertisements, a REP shall include, in a font size and format that is legible to the intended audience, its certified name or commission authorized business name, certification number, telephone number and Internet address (if available).
The REP's terms of service, EFL, and YRAC must also include its certification number
