In 1999, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 7 and electric utilities in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) began the transition from operating as regulated, fully integrated electric utilities to a new competitive environment.
The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) has approved a Code of Conduct for Electric Utilities and their Affiliates. These rules govern how regulated energy delivery companies operating in Texas should interact with their competitive affiliates in order to create and maintain an open and fair competitive market and to ensure that regulated utilities do not favor their own competitive affiliates over other market participants.
Additional information, as well as the full text of the PUCT Code of Conduct, may be viewed at the PUCT website.
Oncor fully supports the PUCT Code of Conduct requirements. This section of our web site contains related information to fulfill PUCT reporting requirements, as information becomes available. Required reporting includes:
