MarkeTrak Training Switch Hold Switch Hold What it

MarkeTrak Training Switch Hold Switch Hold What it is: According to PUCT Subst. Rule 25.126 & PUCT Subst. Rule 25.480, a Switch Hold can be placed on a premise by either a Retail Electric Provider (REP) for a Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) or by the Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) due to Meter Tampering. The Switch Hold will remain in effect until the specified charges have been paid by the customer. Purpose: To ensure that the occupant responsible for the financial obligations at the premise satisfies and resolves any outstanding charges with the appropriate entities before switching to a new REP.

Types: 1) Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) REP initiated 2) Tampering TDSP initiated PUBLIC 2 Types of Switch Hold Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) Switch Holds: Initiated and removed by the REP of Record via 650_01 to TDSP. Prevents customers from switching to another REP if they have outstanding charges with current REP of Record (ROR). Current ROR must provide clear explanation (orally or written) to customer of the switch hold process before initiation of DPP Switch Hold.

Current ROR must receive customers agreement before initiation of DPP Switch Hold. Switch Hold must be removed by ROR in a timely manner once all DPP obligations have been satisfied by the customer. PUBLIC 3 Types of Switch Hold Tampering Switch Holds: Initiated by the TDSP when Tampering is discovered at the premise. TDSP must store evidence of Tampering discovery. TDSP sends 814_20 to update ESIID status for Tampering. TDSP sends Tampering charges on the 810_02 to ROR. Switch Hold prevents customer from switching to another REP if they

have outstanding Tampering charges with current ROR. Switch Hold must be removed in a timely manner by current ROR via 650_01 once all outstanding Tampering charges are satisfied by the customer. PUBLIC 4 Switch Hold Removal for Purposes of a Move In Scenario: A Premise has a Switch Hold applied, however the customer vacates the premise. An entirely new customer tries to move in, yet encounters the Switch Hold on the Premise. When this happens, the requesting REP cannot use a 650_01 to remove the Switch Hold, since they are not the initiators of the

Switch Hold. Instead, the requesting REP must follow the process outlined in Retail Market Guide Section 7.16.4.3 (for Tampering) or 7.17.4.3 (for DPP) associated with removal of a Switch Hold for purposes of a Move In. PUBLIC 5 Switch Hold Removal for Purposes of a Move In How it works: 1) Using only one (1) MarkeTrak issue per ESI ID, the requesting CR must initiate the Switch Hold MarkeTrak (MT) issue type to begin the removal process. 2) The TDSP, current REP of Record, and requesting CR will collaborate to determine if the New Occupant is in any way associated with the Current

Occupant who is subject to Switch Hold. 3) The requesting CR must provide supporting documentation for the New Occupant including a New Occupant Statement (NOS). 4) If it is determined that the New Occupant is not associated with the Customer of Record (current occupant), the TDSP will remove any Switch Holds applied to the ESIID. 5) If an issue has been open for more than four (4) business hours without resolution, the TDSP will make the final decision as to whether or not the Switch Hold will remain. PUBLIC 6 Switch Hold Removal What does it mean: Four (4) Business Hours?

MarkeTrak Switch Hold Removals are worked during Business Hours only (Monday-Friday, 8:00AM-5:00PM CPT) Market Participant Timelines: TDSP Initial review: one (1) business hour Current REP of Record review: one and a half (1.5) business hours TDSP Final review: one and a half (1.5) business hours (or any remaining time within the four-hour period) If issue remains unresolved at the end of a business day, the Responsible MPs

time will resume next business day at 8:00AM Example: REP of Record is assigned the issue at 4:00PM Friday. Business hours cease at 5:00PM Friday. Business hours resume 8:00AM Monday. REP of Record has until 8:30 AM Monday to respond, for a total of one and a half business hours as Responsible MP. PUBLIC 7 Switch Hold Removal Documentation Standard Documentation Requirements Per RMG 7.16 & 7.17, the Requesting CR must include the New Occupant Statement (RMG Appendix J2) AND one of the following:

Copy of a current signed lease; Notarized Affidavit of Landlord (RMG Appendix J9); Utility bill, in new occupants name, dated within last two months from a different Premise address; Closing documents indicating transfer of ownership occurred subsequent to Switch Hold applied to Premise; or

The New Occupant Statement does not need to accompany the CSA form, and it does not need to be notarized. The Requesting CR must be the CSA provider, established via 814_18 CSA Add transaction. If there is not an actual CSA, the Requesting CR must use the previously mentioned process. New Occupant Statement + documentation Example: Non-CSA vacant agreement
