(A) In accordance with sections 4905.10, 4911.18, and division (F) of section 4928.06 of the Revised Code, each competitive retail electric service (CRES) provider is subject to an annual assessment based upon its intrastate gross receipts or gross earnings (collectively "gross revenue") associated with the provision of each CRES which it is certified to provide.
(B) Each CRES provider that provides retail electric generation service shall, in the manner and on the date specified by the commission or its staff, file an annual report of the gross revenue derived from its intrastate sales of kilowatt-hours of electricity. For the purpose of the report, sales of kilowatt-hours of electricity are deemed to occur at the meter of a retail customer.
(C) Each CRES provider that provides a CRES(s) in addition to, or other than, retail electric generation service shall, in the manner and on the date specified by the commission or its staff, file an annual report of the intrastate gross revenue derived from its provision of such service(s). For the purpose of the report, sales of kilowatt-hours of electricity are deemed to occur at the meter of a retail customer.
(D) Each CRES provider shall maintain detailed records to support the information provided pursuant to paragraphs (B) and (C) of this rule. Such records and information are subject to audit by the commission.
(E) In instances where a CRES provider underreports its gross revenue, the commission may, in computing an assessment made pursuant to paragraph (A) of this rule, include any gross revenues that were underreported in a prior year. The commission shall also, in addition to any other penalty under the Revised Code, assess the provider interest on the amount underreported at the rate stated in section 1343.01 of the Revised Code.
(F) A governmental aggregator may authorize its electric services company, or a designated agent, to file, on its behalf, any report required by this rule.
