List of Option I REP Filing Requirements

Competitive Assets has updated its popular list of the filing requirements that are specific to Option 1 Retail Electric Providers.  The color-coded list (excel spreadsheet, aka “matrix) includes the required filings for Option 1 REPs at the Public Utility Commission of Texas, ERCOT, and DOE’s EIA.  The list of requirements includes 45 for the PUCT, 6 for ERCOT, and 2 for DOE’s EIA.  The list includes rule citations and summaries, links to key documents including any forms available on a website, and where relevant, key contact info.  In addition to the basic list, we also include a list of the requirements at the PUCT by date.  The list by date enables you to more easily find regular filings that key off of dates instead of off of changes at your company.  Additional bonus references are provided to help with the finding of relevant information. 

These lists are available for $475. You can request a free sample at
