Maine EBT Standards Document
V. Standard Offer Electronic Business Transactions:
The Standard Offer in Maine is a wholesale model in some respects. Standard Offer Providers, (SOP) are not provided customer specific information, therefore, no enrollment detail or individual payment information is sent. In general, T&Ds will provide the appropriate percent, based on bid percentage, of aggregated customer data by rate class to Standard Offer Providers. The total number of accounts by standard offer rate class each day will be provided from the settlement process according to the settlement schedule. An aggregated version of the Usage & Billing transaction will be provided daily to each Standard Offer Provider according to the T&D’s billing schedule. The aggregate Usage & Billing transaction will detail the SOP percent for each of the billed components by time period, the associated billed dollar amounts and the amount deducted for bad debt retainage equaling the amount due to the SOP.
Further information can be obtained from the MPUC report on “information Needs of the Standard Offer Providers”.
