MP2 Energy Texas LLC ("MP2") filed a motion to withdraw its intervention in a Texas PUC proceeding addressing Young Energy, LLC's application to amend its retail electric provider (REP) certificate to, among other things, remove the assumed name "Paga Menos" and replace it with the assumed name "Cost Plus Power"
Although MP2 had not yet formally filed an objection to the application, in its now-withdrawn intervention, MP2 had noted that MP2's REP certificate already includes the trade name Cost Plus Energy and cited the PUC's rule prohibiting deceptive, misleading, vague, or duplicative REP names
However, Young Energy said in a reply that MP2 had allowed the assumed name Cost Plus Energy to lapse as an assumed name at the Texas Secretary of State. Young Energy said that the name Cost Plus Energy was abandoned at the time Young Energy registered, and was granted, the assumed name Cost Plus Power at the Secretary of State. Furthermore, Young Energy said that the name Cost Plus Energy was void at the time of Young Energy’s application at the PUC to add the trade name Cost Plus Power to its REP certificate. MP2 has since re-registered Cost Plus Energy as an assumed name at the Secretary of State
