NBP RFI: Data Access, Third Party Use, and Privacy- Comments of Oncor Electric Deliverty Company LLC

Oncor Electric Delivery Company LLC (Oncor) is a regulated electric transmission and distribution utility that serves the north-central, eastern and western parts of Texas, including the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth. Oncor operates the largest electric transmission and distribution system in Texas, delivering power to over 3 million homes and businesses and operating approximately 117,000 miles of distribution and transmission lines in Texas. Oncor operates in a unique market in which only competitive Retail Electric Providers (REPs) who are not utilities sell electricity to end-use consumers, and the transmission and distribution utilities (who are not REPs) deliver that electricity to consumers pursuant to tariffs and terms of service governed by the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT). While the PUCT regulates certain aspects of REPs’ operations by establishing consumer protection requirements, it does not regulate the price of electricity charged by the REPs, nor does it regulate what services the REP may choose to offer.
