Or. Admin. R. 860-038-0280 - Default Supply

(1) Default supply is an alternative available to nonresidential consumers served by direct access.
(2) The two types of default supply are emergency as defined in OAR 860-038-0005 and standard offer as defined in OAR 860-038-0250.
(3) Each electric company must provide the emergency option as follows:
(a) Emergency default service commences when an electric company is informed by the ESS or nonresidential consumer, or becomes aware, that an ESS is no longer providing service; and
(b) Each electric company must file tariffs with the Commission that include the emergency service option. An electric company must design emergency service rates to recover its costs of providing such service.
(4) A nonresidential consumer must give the electric company notice of intent to purchase or terminate purchase of standard offer service consistent with the applicable tariff provision.
(5) An electric company may require a deposit from a consumer applying to receive emergency default service or standard offer service. The electric company may disconnect a consumer receiving default service or standard offer service subject to OAR 860-021-0305 and 860-021-0505.
(6) Unless otherwise directed by a nonresidential consumer, an electric company must move an emergency service consumer from emergency default service to standard offer service within five business days of the nonresidential consumer's initial purchase of emergency default service. This provision does not limit a consumer's right to return from emergency default service or standard offer service to direct access.
