Sustainable Star LLC filed to withdraw its electricity licenses in Ohio and Maryland
It was not immediately clear if Sustainable Star was serving as the supplier for any customers upon its withdrawal and, if so, what the disposition of such customers was
Sustainable Star said in its withdrawal letter that all "obligations" to customers were fulfilled as of June 30, 2022
In Ohio, Sustainable Star is licensed as a competitive retail electric service provider (case code CRS, typically used for "suppliers") to provide services as a power marketer, power broker, and aggregator
In an October 2021 Ohio renewal application, Sustainable Star had said, "Sustainable Star is engaged in a number of operations activities required by its customers in supplying electricity. These include: 1. Marketing to large commercial and industrial customers; 2. Contracting Supply; 3. Scheduling; 4. Delivery; 5. Metering; 6. Billing; 7. Customer issues resolution"
In an October 2021 Ohio renewal application, Sustainable Star had said, "The company supplies services of natural gas and electricity ...
Energy services are provided through collaboration with Constellation Energy and a number of
employees are devoted to that activity."
In an October 2021 Ohio renewal application, Sustainable Star had said, "The company operates in collaboration with a major national generator of energy.
Sustainable Star purchases energy from the national supplier and retails it to
customers, bills customers, and responds to customer issues directly."
In Maryland, a 2012 PSC letter order granted Sustainable Star, "a license to supply electricity or electric generation
services," further stating, "The license granted by the Commission under this Letter Order is limited solely to electricity
supplier services to commercial and industrial customers."
Sustainable Star also held an earlier electric broker license in Maryland, and a natural gas broker license. The company sought to withdraw such licenses as well
Sustainable Star LLC is also licensed as an alternative retail electric supplier
(ARES) in Illinois, and has received FERC market-based rate authority
In Delaware, Sustainable Star LLC has been licensed as a "broker and supplier".
In Pennsylvania, Sustainable Star was licensed as an electric broker/marketer. The Pennsylvania PUC cancelled Sustainable Star's Pennsylvania license earlier this year for failure to file proof of security.
