Retail Markets Working Group

The Commission’s Retail Markets Working Group (RMWG) was established by the Final Policy Statement on Default Service and Retail Electric Markets issued at Docket No. M-00072009.  The purpose of the RMWG is to explore opportunities to enhance customer choice and facilitate the development of retail markets.  Some specific issues have been referred to the RMWG and the expectation is that after reasonable study and examination, the RMWG will provide policy recommendations for the Commission’s consideration.  As the RMWG moves to consider specific issues, proposals and comments will be posted to this web page.
