In Maryland, The Electric Customer Choice and Competition Act of 1999, was signed into law. Just like the Texas Market, the resident's in Maryland are now able to choose their own REPs. The Maryland Public Service Commission regulates public utilities within the state and sets tariff rates for natural gas and electricity distribution services.
Pennsylvania, Act 129 adds several new sections to, and amends several existing sections of the Public Utility Code. The Commission will implement the Act in phases. The first phase will deal with the Commission’s obligation to adopt an energy efficiency and conservation (EE&C) program by Jan. 15, 2009. Subsequent phases of the Commission’s Act 129 implementation process will address EDC and default service provider responsibilities; conservation service providers; smart meter technology; time-of-use rates; real-time pricing plans; default service procurement; market misconduct; alternative energy sources; and cost recovery.
