On June 23, 2004, the Commission issued an Order (June Order) [1] stating its intent to withdraw market-based rate authority from 96 public utilities that had not filed Electric Quarterly Reports. The Commission gave the utilities 30 days to file their overdue Electric Quarterly Reports or face cancellation of their market-based rate tariffs.

In Order 2001,[2] the Commission required public utilities, including power marketers, to file, among other things, Electric Quarterly Reports summarizing the contractual terms and conditions in their agreements for all jurisdictional services (including market-based power sales, cost-based power sales, and transmission service) and transaction information (including rates) for short-term and long-term market-based power sales and cost-based power sales during the most recent calendar quarter.

Six of the 96 companies identified in the June Order made the required filings. The above-captioned companies have not filed Electric Quarterly Reports. Commission staff made a concerted effort to contact each of these companies. Contact was attempted in writing, by e-mail and by telephone to remind them of their regulatory obligation. In the June Order, the Commission ordered:

Within 30 days of the date of issuance of this order, each public utility listed in the caption of this order shall file its Electric Quarterly Reports for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Quarters of 2002 and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Quarters of the 2003 and 1st and 2nd Quarters of 2004. If no such filings are made, the Commission will withdraw the public utility's authority to sell power at market-based rates and terminate its electric market-based rate tariff.

The Commission hereby withdraws the market-based rate authority and terminates the electric market-based rate tariff for each of the 90 companies captioned above in this Notice.
