The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission issued a Secretarial Letter to announce the effective date of the revised Commission regulations relating to electric generation supplier (EGS) customer information.
The revised regulations, whose adoption was previously reported by EnergyChoiceMatters.com in February, at 52 Pa. Code Chapter 54 (relating to electric generation customer choice customer information) applicable to EGSs, "were published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin on August 31, 2020 [sic] -- with the revised regulations becoming effective 60 days after publication on September 30, 2020," the PUC said. Note that the regulations appear to have been published in the Bulletin on August 1, Volume 50, Issue 31
The revised regulations provide changes to standards and pricing practices for retail electric services; the disclosure statement for residential and small business customers; marketing/sales activities; and the provision of notices of contract expiration or changes in terms. The revised regulations also include a prohibition against EGSs charging early termination fees if a residential or small business customer terminates a contract within the last 30 days of the contract expiration date.
