The response to this ruling must include (1) the docket number, case caption, and an original signature, (2) a verification page, and (3) a certificate of service indicating that the response was served on all those on the service list.

    General Requirements
    1) Paragraph 7 of the application form directs an applicant to identify other jurisdictions where it possesses similar authority to provide ABC services. Paragraph 7 also directs an applicant to disclose whether it has had any complaints filed against it for its provision of any services in the electric or gas industry in this or any other jurisdiction. Applicant references North Carolina in response to Paragraph 2 but only identifies Pennsylvania in response to Paragraph 7. Please address this discrepancy and identify any other states where Applicant offers services similar to that at issue in this proceeding. Applicant also fails to disclose whether it has had any complaints filed against it. Please identify any such complaints and include the nature of the complaint, the jurisdiction, and the ultimate resolution.
    2) Section 454.90 of 83 Ill. Adm. Code 454, “Licensure of Retail Electric Agents, Brokers, and Consultants” (“Part 454”), sets forth a code of conduct applicable to any person or entity required to be licensed pursuant to Part 454. Amendments to Section 454.90 became effective on November 1, 2011. Applicant appears to rely on the earlier version of Section 454.90. Applicant must commit to comply with the code of conduct set forth in the currently effective Section 454.90 if it wishes to receive the license it requests. Managerial Requirements 3) Section 454.60 of Part 454 requires Applicant to demonstrate that it has had at least one year of management experience with a business enterprise and to provide occupational background information for the person(s) with that experience. Attachment A to the application contains background information on an individual that Applicant intends to use to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.60. That information, however, does not include enough details on the individual’s managerial experience. Please provide the following information:
    a) For the individual that Applicant intends to use to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.60, Applicant should list each company/business, which employed the individual, and identify the duration of employment by “month/year” to “month/year.” b) For the individual that Applicant intends to use to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.60 at each company/business, identify the individual’s specific job duties. Technical Requirements 4) Section 454.70 of Part 454 requires Applicant to demonstrate that it has experience in the electric industry of at least one year and to provide occupational background information for the person(s) with that experience. Attachment B to the application indicates that Applicant intends to use the individual listed in Attachment A to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.70. The information contained in Attachment A, however, does not include enough details on that individual’s technical experience. Please provide the following information:
    a) For the individual that Applicant intends to use to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.70, Applicant should list each company/business, which employed the individual, and identify the duration of employment by “month/year” to “month/year.” b) For the individual that Applicant intends to use to satisfy the requirements of Section 454.70 at each company/business, identify the individual’s specific job duties.
