The RFP Process for Procuring PIPP Supply

The PIPP RFP process is a solicitation by which The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company, The Toledo Edison Company, and Ohio Edison Company ("FirstEnergy Ohio Utilities"), wholly-owned subsidiaries of FirstEnergy Corp, are seeking to procure full requirements service for their Percentage of Income Payment Plan (“PIPP”) customers. Winning bidders will assume all responsibilities of a Load Serving Entity (“LSE”) in PJM.

Only Competitive Retail Electric Service (“CRES”) providers certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (“PUCO” or “Commission”) are allowed to submit bids in the PIPP RFP.

The schedule for the PIPP RFPs and the delivery periods of the products being procured can be found on the Calendar page of this Website.

The PIPP RFP Manager, CRA International, Inc. d/b/a Charles River Associates, manages the PIPP RFP process. For additional information regarding the PIPP RFP and to receive updates please register on this Information Website. Click here to register.

This PIPP RFP process is being conducted pursuant to the Commission’s Finding and Order on PIPP in Case No. 16-247-EL-UNC. Click here for more information.

This PIPP RFP process is separate from the competitive bidding process (“CBP”) used by FirstEnergy Ohio Utilities to procure full requirements service for their Standard Service Offer (“SSO”) customers – which is load not being served by a Competitive Retail Electric Service ("CRES") Supplier and excludes load associated with customers on the Percentage of Income Payment Plan (“PIPP Customers”). More information about that CBP can be found at http://www.firstenergycbp.com.
