Effective January 1, 2009, electricity customers with annual demands more than five megawatts will continue to have the option to shop for competitive electricity supply, as well as two or more nonresidential retail customers that aggregate to reach five megawatts of load to become qualified to purchase electric energy from a Competitive Service Provider and petition, and receive approval from, the Virginia State Corporation Commission. In addition, individual retail customers regardless of customer class may purchase Electricity Supply Service provided 100 percent from renewable energy from a Competitive Service Provider if the Company does not offer an approved tariff for electric energy provided 100 percent from renewable energy.
On July 1, 2019, the Company implemented a 12-month minimum-stay period for accounts having an annual peak demand of 500 kW or greater that received Electricity Supply Service from a Competitive Service Provider and return (other than through abandonment) to purchase Electricity Supply Service from the Company.
Once a customer chooses to receive Electricity Supply Service from a Competitive Service Provider and then chooses to return to receive Electricity Supply Service from the Company, the customer shall do so pursuant to the prices, terms, and conditions of the Company’s tariffs approved by the State Corporation Commission and abide, if applicable, by the 12-month minimum-stay requirements or to accept the service at market-based costs without the obligation of a minimum-stay requirement.
