For Suppliers and Partners 
EDI test schedules

ESCO/Marketers who are interested in becoming EDI compliant with RG&E must meet the following requirements:

  • Be identified on a list by the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) staff as Phase 1 certified. If not already on this list the ESCO can Phase 1 certify with RG&E.*
  • Be NYISO approved (electric only) with load buses assigned.
  • Successfully complete Phase III testing with RG&E.


RG&E will perform testing with up to six ESCO/Marketers at one time. This testing group is referred to as a "batch." The schedule for RG&E's testing batches is below. Please contact your RG&E representative to request and enroll in one of the following available batches.

 * If ESCO/Marketer changes 3rd party providers to one that is not Phase 1 certified, the ESCO/Marketer will need to recertify Phase 1 with RG&E.

The Single Bill test is contingent upon completion of a Core test. An ESCO who has completed Core testing in a previous batch and wishes to now test Single Bill that ESCO will need to participate in some set-up work during the Core test batch period immediately preceding the Single Bill test batch.

Further detailed information about EDI testing can be found in the PSC's Orders regarding Case 98-M-0667 in the Technical Operating Profile document and supplements.
The test schedule is subject to change.
