Environmental Disclosure (Label) Program


Energy services companies (ESCOs) selling electricity are required to provide customers with periodic environmental disclosure statements or environmental disclosure labels in plain language.á The labels provide information on the types of fuels used to generate electricity, air emissions resulting from generating electricity, and a comparison of those emissions to a statewide average.á This information enables consumers, if they choose to; select an electricity supplier based on environmental quality and resource diversity, a key desired outcome of the Environmental Disclosure Program.

On November 14, 2008, the Commission issued an Order in Case 94-E-0954 which changed the settlement period for the Environmental Disclosure program.á The revised settlement period will now coincide with a calendar year. The next settlement period will cover January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2007. Although the settlement period has been extended from rolling six-month periods to a calendar year, Load Serving Entities (including distribution utilities and ESCOs) must continue to provide disclosure labels to customers at least once every six months.
