Tesla, Inc. has filed at the Public Utility Commission of Texas an objection to the use of the trade names "Tesla Power Texas", "Tesla Power", "Tesla Power TX", and "Tesla Energy" by electricity broker SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC
As exclusively first reported by EnergyChoiceMatters.com, SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC has registered the following assumed names with the Texas Secretary of State, and filed an amendment to its Texas electric broker registration to reflect such assumed names as well: "Tesla Power Texas"; "Tesla Power"; "Tesla Power TX"; and "Tesla Energy."
Specifically, Tesla, Inc. said in a PUC filing that, "Tesla, Inc. objects to the application of SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC to amend its existing broker registration. On September 14, 2021 SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC, filed in PUC Project No. 49779 (Item No. 2030) to amend its broker registration to include Tesla Power Texas, Tesla Power, Tesla Power Tx, and Tesla Energy as trade, commercial, and doing-business-as (d/b/a) names. SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC has no relation to Tesla, Inc. nor to any of its affiliates or subsidiaries, and therefore Tesla, Inc. requests that the Commission deny SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC' s application to amend its broker registration to include these names."
Tesla, Inc. said in a PUC filing that, "Tesla, Inc. has contacted SetMeUpEnergy Services, LLC over this matter and has attached a confidential copy of those communications herein."
