Staff of the Public Utility Commission of Texas reported that 35 retail electric providers, d/b/a's, as well as utility Entergy Texas, have filed requests for the low-income customer match list that REPs may voluntarily request to fund and receive.

Staff said that, in total, the REPs that have requested Fiscal Year 2019 low-income customer list represent 91.5% of the identified low-income customers from the REPs that requested the list from the previous year.

The cost for providing the matching process is $60,000 annually. Staff reported that TXU and NRG have agreed to contribute $20,000 each towards the cost of the annual matching process. The remaining $20,000 will be split evenly among the remaining REPs that request the list by filing in project 48316, with the addition of Entergy Texas. Other than TXU and NRG, the cost to each participating REP brand is $740

A list of REPs requesting the list can be found here (page 6)

Among other provisions, Senate Bill 1976 allows the PUCT to request the Health and Human Services Commission to develop a list of individuals that are enrolled in Medicaid or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. This list is used to identify low-income customers of the REPs as long as the Commission receives a request from one or more REPs by July 31 of the previous fiscal year for a list of low-income electric customers and the REPs that request the list agree to reimburse the Commission for the cost of the development of the list.
