PUC Seeks Comments On Proposals To Spur More Competition In PA’s Natural Gas Market

Public Utility Commission Thursday requested comments on proposed regulatory changes designed to enhance competition and encourage greater customer participation in the Commonwealth’s retail natural gas market.
The Commission voted 4-0 to solicit comments on proposed revisions to Title 52 of PA Code Chapter 62 (relating to Natural Gas Supply Customer Choice), regulations which address the release, assignment and transfer of capacity among natural gas distribution companies (NGDCs) and natural gas suppliers (NGSs).  
The newly proposed rules seek to bring greater transparency, consistency and equity to the market while maintaining system integrity and improving reliability.  
The proposed rules also seek to create uniform capacity cost allocations, provide more tools and market pricing to handle daily balancing within the market, and give market participants real-time information to enhance system operations.
The proposed regulatory changes are influenced by information obtained during the Commission’s Investigation of Pennsylvania’s Retail Natural Gas Supply Market being spearheaded by the PUC’s Office of Competitive Market Oversight and including input from key industry and consumer stakeholders.

Interested parties have 45 days from the publication of the Order in the PA Bulletin to provide written comments to the Public Utility Commission, Attn: Secretary, P.O. Box 3265, Harrisburg, PA  17105-3265.  Comments may also be filed electronically through the Commission’s e-File system.  Docket No.: L-2017-2619223
