Direct Access for California

On October 11, 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger signed Senate Bill 695 (SB 695) into law. The bill re-instates retail choice for electricity supply (also called Direct Access [DA]) to non-residential customers in California. While all non-residential customers are eligible to participate in DA, total DA load is capped in each utility service territory. The process by which space under the cap is made available to customers was initially designed as a first come/first served process that was used in four separate phases of customer enrollments. The first-come/first-served submission process used during the initial phase-in is no longer applicable and has been replaced with a “lottery” process that allows customers to submit their Six-Month Switching Notices over a 5 day period. All eligible Six-Month Switching Notices are assigned a random number by the utility. The notices are then listed sequentially, based on the random number, and accepted sequentially until the market cap is reached. This new process is designed to be more orderly and eliminate the frustrations that had occurred under the first-come/first-serve approach.

The first new enrollment opportunity took place in April 2013 and occurs every June starting in 2014. If demand exceeds the amount of space available under the cap, a waitlist will be created to establish the priority for awarding space under the cap that may open up during the course of the year. The waitlist will be re-established each year via this process.

As a service to our current and future customers, Constellation will submit all the paperwork associated with your company's Six-Month Switching Notice(s) on your company's behalf at no obligation. Note: If your company is awarded space under the cap in the DA lottery, you will not be obligated to choose Constellation as a service provider, although we hope you do!

To have Constellation administer the process for you, or if you have any questions about the process, please contact your Account Manager.

If you are new to Constellation, please contact Jay Cattermole at jay.cattermole@constellation.com or 925-552-9604 for further assistance.

 

About Choosing a New Energy Supplier

For a long time, only one company, a utility company, provided all aspects of energy services to businesses in California. But in more recent years, states across the U.S., including California, have developed competitive markets for energy services, providing the opportunity for energy suppliers to compete with each other over the price of energy to power your business.

Where this competition exists, there is potential opportunity for you to save money on your supply costs.
