MPUC Reminds Maine CEPs of Their Responsibility for Actions Taken by CEP Representatives and Agents

In an August 17, 2011 letter from the Maine Public Utilities Commission to all “competitive electricity suppliers,” the MPUC reminded all competitive electricity providers of their responsibility for all actions taken by their representatives or agents when operating in Maine.  The MPUC issued this reminder “[i]n light of the increased number of Competitive Electricity Suppliers (CEP) becoming licensed to provide both aggregator/broker and supplier services” and, apparently, the resulting increase in the number of electricity providers contracting with representatives or agents in the Maine retail electricity market.  More specifically, the MPUC pointed to the requirement in Chapter 305 § 2(C)(3) of its rules, which states that by obtaining a Maine CEP license, the licensee agrees to use reasonable efforts not to conduct business with any entity acting as a CEP in Maine that does not have an MPUC license.
