At it’s open meeting today, the PUCT granted Accent Energy’s request for a good cause exception (docket 44518) to 25.474(f)(2) and (3). The PUCT granted the good cause exception for a period of 12 months. The PUCT also directed staff to open a rulemaking to address these issues for the broader market such that the rules are in place within 12 months.
While not prohibiting other REPs from filing their own good cause exceptions (at least on this issue) clearly they would like REPs to wait and participate in the rulemaking process.
That being said, clearly one path for REPs voicing the need for rulemakings very well could be seeking a good cause exception (and fighting for it) should they believe they have a valid reason.
