Market-Based Rate Tariff
The market-based rate tariff governs a sellerís wholesale sales at market-based rates. The Commission requires that this tariff be submitted electronically through the Commissionís eTariff system in compliance with Order No. 714 .
It is also important to know what kind of tariff change you are submitting. The commission classifies the types of tariff filings submitted by sellers as either a Compliance filing (eTariff Filing Code 70 or 90) or a Tariff Revision (eTariff Filing Code 30 or 10).
A Compliance filing can include any type of tariff change that is required to be submitted by Commission order. This includes any type of change to bring a tariff into compliance with Order Nos. 697 or 697-A, or any Commission order which is specific to a single company or group of companies.
A Tariff Revision, on the other hand, is any type of tariff change that is seller driven. For example a seller may wish to limit its authority to a specific balancing authority area. This type of change was not ordered by the Commission and thus is classified as a Tariff Revision.
The Commission allows filers to elect whether to transact under a single market-based rate tariff for an entire corporate family or under separate tariffs. These so-called joint tariffs allow corporate families to more clearly organize their tariff records, electronic tariff databases and simplify their tariff filings. For corporate families using a joint tariff, only the designated filer is required to submit tariff revisions, for example when its category status changes or when Commission-approved or required language in the tariff needs updating.
