The District of Columbia PSC issued a final order related to natural gas drops and enrollments that Washington Gas Light had said was necessary to implement its pending new Purchase of Receivables (POR) program
Under the PSC's final order,, "Not less than seven (7) days before the first day of the next month each Energy Supplier shall provide to the Natural Gas Utility a list of new Customers to be supplied by that Energy Supplier beginning with the first day of the next month."
In contrast, the prior rule had provided that by the ninth (9th) calendar Day of the month (or next Business Day, if the ninth day falls on a holiday or weekend), each Energy Supplier shall provide to the Natural Gas Utility a list of Customers to be supplied by that Energy Supplier beginning with the Customer’s Meter read date the following month.
Under the PSC's final order, "The Natural Gas Utility shall drop a customer from its current supplier when another supplier enrolls the customer and shall process an electronic transaction for enrollment regardless of whether the customer is currently supplied by another supplier or by the utility. Enrollments shall be processed on a first-in basis during any given month."
WGL had said that the changes were required to conform to its established POR process in Maryland and the tariffs proposed for POR in D.C.
