Yes. Every licensed supplier in the AES Ohio service area is required to have a Dayton-specific subaccount to be used for all PJM market settlements, capacity and transmission activities. These functions include Retail Load Responsibility (RLR) scheduling and forecasting of peak load contribution (PLC) and network service peak load (NSPL) obligations.
• Dual Billing?
• Utility Consolidated Rate Ready Billing?
• Utility Consolidated Bill Ready Billing?
• Budget Billing?
Yes. Suppliers can utilize budget billing via Bill Ready or Rate Ready Billing (see Section 10 of the Rate Ready Billing Services Agreement).
• Percentage Discount off the AES Ohio Price-to-Compare?
Yes - Rate Ready Billing
• Supplier Consolidated Billing?
• Active account switches to another supplier?
If the customer is switching from one supplier to another supplier, AES Ohio will issue a bill displaying the final supplier charges. If the customer does NOT pay these charges, they will be wiped off just prior to producing the first bill for the new supplier.
• Active account returning to standard offer billing?
If a switched customer is leaving a supplier and returning to AES Ohio's Standard Service Offer (SSO) rate, AES Ohio will issue a bill displaying the final supplier charges. Since the wipe-off does not occur for approximately 90 days, AES Ohio will continue to display the unpaid supplier charges on subsequent SSO bills. If the customer does NOT pay these charges, they will be wiped off just prior to producing the third SSO bill.
• Final account?
If a switched customer ends distribution service with AES Ohio, the final bill will contain the final supplier charges. If the customer does NOT pay these charges, they will be wiped off just prior to producing the final bill reminder (or 9 days after the final bill due date).
• 1/6 - Customer owes 1/6th of past due arrears plus current bill. For the past due amount, the agreement uses the ES/EL ratio at the time the pay agreement was written. Current bill is the actual balance that has not aged.
• 1/9 - Customer owes 1/9th of their past due arrears plus an average bill amount. For the past due amount, the agreement uses the ES/EL ratio at the time the pay agreement was written. The average bill amount is also prorated.
• Winter Heating Plan - Customer owes 1/3rd of their account balance due each month. The agreement shall be offered for any bills that include any usage from November 1st to April 15th of each year. The agreement uses the ES/EL ratio at time of billing.
According to Section 4g of the BSA, the changes will be made by AES Ohio within 21 business days.
• 12 days for AES Ohio to define, test & send results to supplier
• 3 days for the supplier to verify test results
• 3 days for AES Ohio to correct the error
• 3 days to install in the AES Ohio billing system
The list contains the following information:
• End-use customer name

No. Those factors are used by PJM to calculate the suppliers' Daily Zonal UCAP Obligations. Below is the calculation used by PJM:
Daily Zonal UCAP Obligation = PLC (aggregate total by supplier) * Final Zonal RPM Scaling Factor * Forecast Pool Requirement
Effective with bills issued in October 2018, customers served at secondary or above voltage will incur delivery charges for all kW demand at the tariffed rates. Previously, the first 5 kW had been free. If the customer does not have a demand meter, the billed demand will be calculated each month according to the conversion table below.
If you do not receive a demand read via EDI and would like to bill a non-residential customer a demand charge, you can now use the demand conversion. The conversion table calculates an estimated demand reading based on the kWh usage for the current bill period. Again, this should only be used for non-residential customers that are not receiving demand reads via EDI. In the future (estimated Q1 2019), the billed demand will be provided to suppliers via the BB loop on the EDI 867 transactions.
|0-500 kWh||1 kW|
|501-1000 kWh||2 kW|
|1001-1500 kWh||3 kW|
|1501-2000 kWh||4 kW|
|2001-2500 kWh||5 kW|
*If usage exceeds 2500 kWh, demand is set to 5 kW and meter will be scheduled for exchange.
