The District of Columbia PSC reconvened the Customer Impact Working Group ('CIWG') to resolve the issues raised by Pepco in a report concerning Green Button Connect My Data (CMD), and to develop a plan for implementing Green Button Connect My Data (CMD) in the District.

The CIWG’s first virtual meeting will be on April 29

The CIWG shall file a report with the Commission including the resolution of these issues and a plan for implementing CMD within 75 days of the first meeting of the CIWG

In the report, Pepco had raised concerns about the cost of CMD implementation, and privacy concerns

In the report, Pepco said that, to protect customers under any Commission-mandated CMD program, Pepco would require third parties to register and sign privacy agreements before being added as a CMD-approved vendor. Customers would be required to provide consent and to agree to terms and conditions for sharing the data via the Pepco website.

The PSC directed that Pepco shall provide other stakeholders with information relating to the following issues on April 22, 2021:

1. Any plan to update the ComEd CMD product due to the 2020 changes in the CMD standards;

2. Identification of any data-sharing platform that would serve the same functions as CMD that is being developed in other Exelon jurisdictions;

3. Explanation of (a) why measures similar to California Public Utility Commission Rules 24 and 32 should not be adopted in the District of Columbia, including whether modifications to PJM rules would be required: and (b) whether and to what extent implementation of FERC Order No. 2222 will facilitate such demand response services;

4. Identification of AMI functionalities and other tools that could be used for data sharing;

5. A cost estimate for the implementation of the functionalities and tools that Pepco identifies in its filing, including Zigbee-enabled HAN activation;

6. Proposals on how market participants can obtain customer consent to share customer information with third parties; and

7. Explanation of why the U.S. Department of Energy’s Data Guard standard does not provide sufficient protection for customer data, in view of District of Columbia statute and requirements of this Commission.

Other stakeholders are invited to present information relating to the following issues:

1. Identification of any data-sharing platform that would serve the same functions as CMD that is being developed in other jurisdictions; and

2. Alternative means of consumer protection and security other than NDAs.
