In response to the Open Meeting discussion related to the new disclosure rule, staff opened a rulemaking project on Dec. 29, to address a process for implementing expedited switches (project 36536).
Both Chm. Smitherman and Com. Nelson have expressed a desire to change the normal switch timeline that is currently tied to on-cycle meter reads, so that the new norm would be dictated by off-cycle meter reads. Implications that will also likely be considered in the is rulemaking related to this policy change are fees for off-cycle meter reads and who will pay them and the timing and distribution of the ERCOT enrollment notice
