The Competitive Bidding Process

This Competitive Bidding Process (CBP) is a solicitation process for Duke Energy Ohio to procure full requirements service for standard service offer (SSO) customers. Starting with the March 2016 SSO auction, SSO load will exclude the load of those customers participating in the percentage of income payment plan (PIPP). Winning bidders of the CBP will assume all responsibilities of a Load Serving Entity (LSE).

The CBP will cover the period from June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2018. As Auction Manager, CRA International manages the auction process. A descending-price clock bidding format will be used.

This CBP is being conducted pursuant to an Opinion and Order issued on April 2, 2015 by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) in Case No. 14-841-EL-SSO, et al. Click here for more information.

This CBP auction process to procure full requirements service for Standard Service Offer (“SSO”) customers of Duke Energy Ohio is separate from the RFP process used by Duke Energy Ohio to procure full requirements service for their Percentage of Income Payment Plan (“PIPP”) customers.
