The New York PSC issued separate show cause orders to AAA ESCO, LLC and Switch On Power directing each to show why each's eligibility to act as an ESCO in New York State should not be revoked or, alternatively, why other consequences as set forth in the Commission’s Uniform Business Practices (UBP) should not be imposed, for each's alleged failure to file an annual compliance filing for 2021
To maintain eligibility status, an ESCO must file its annual compliance filing. UBP §2.D.1 requires each ESCO to submit, by January 31 of each year, a statement that the information and attachments contained in the ESCO’s Retail Access Eligibility Form and application package are current. Or, if revisions to the ESCO’s Application Form and application are necessary, UBP §2.D.1 requires that the ESCO file these revisions by January 31st.
The PSC's show cause orders noted that, prior to their issuance, Department of Public Service Staff attempted to contact each ESCO concerning their alleged failure, including sending a Notice of Apparent Violation to each ESCO
