8 Retail Competition Is Successful Elsewhere: AZ Utilities have proven that customers want choice o Opponents say retail choice is not needed in Arizona. o Each of APS, TEP, and SRP tout their multiple rate schedules for their ratepayers. o This proves only that customers want choice. o If multiple service offerings are good for customer, how can it not be good to allow competition in the provision of those services? © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

9 Retail Competition Is Successful Elsewhere: The truth about rate and price comparisons o Opponents efforts to discredit choice by calling it costly compared to regulation are fundamentally flawed. o Comparison of regulated rates to restructured product prices across geographic regions is not valid. o Comparison of regulated rates to average restructured prices within a geographic region is not valid. o Alarming statistics about increases in rates with restructuring were due to rate freezes. o It is more valid to look at the range of prices that apply to the range of products that are offered. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

12 o Myth: Giving customers the ability to choose their supplier will reduce coal consumption. o Facts: o The future of coal in Arizona is part of a national debate. o The extent to which national initiatives and environmental policy impact coal in Arizona is not impacted by retail choice. o ACC retains control over whether and how to pay for coal investments. o Coal remains an important part of the mix in retail choice states.

13 o Myth: Retail choice leads to unreliablity and loss of power for critical needs, such as the 2003 blackout: o Facts: o Not one investigative study cited restructuring as a factor in the 2003 northeastern blackout. o PJM – neighboring RTO where every state has retail choice – avoided the blackout because of their state of preparedness. o FERC chairman Pat Wood testimony before the Senate: “…the operator’s primary charge is to work the system you got…. Markets do not compromise reliability, but it is our job to redouble our efforts…” Refuting Misinformation: 2. Retail Choice WILL NOT Lead to an Unreliable Grid © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

14 o Myth: Retail choice leads to unreliablity and loss of power for critical needs. o Facts – cont’d: o The electric grid – transmission and distribution – remains the same, subject to the same reliability standards, oversight, and regulated control over investment. o Supply becomes more efficient and productive as customers become better educated and demand the most cost effective service. o States continue to have authority to establish reserve margins or other reliability metrics.

15 Refuting Misinformation: 3. Retail choice WILL NOT escalate costs for non-choosing customers o Myth: Only large customers will chose an alternative supplier and non-choosing residential/smaller commercial customers will see escalating costs. o Facts: o Retail choice does usually begin with larger commercial and industrial customers. o Recovery of stranded costs from all customers prevents escalating costs to non-choosing customers. o Default service designs provide protections as well and brings benefits of competition to non-choosing customers. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

16 Refuting Misinformation: 4. Retail choice WILL NOT dilute state control of energy policy o Myth: ACC will lose control of energy policy and market oversight. o Facts: o Wholesale energy markets become more active due to presence of more buyers and sellers in a competitive retail market. o FERC oversees wholesale market activities, so overall presence will increase and wholesale transactions increase. o But ACC continues to grant licenses to all retail suppliers and enforce consumer protections. o ACC retains jurisdiction to determine and enforce reliability metrics. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

17 Refuting Misinformation: 5. Retail choice WILL NOT harm the AZ economy o Myth: Keeping new entrants out by prohibiting retail choice will not protect the AZ economy. o Facts: o New entrants will invest. o Constellation already serving or about to serve 9 different school districts in Arizona with solar installations and serves some of the APS AG-1 load. o Customer choice that leads to cost savings for families and businesses will ripple through the economy. o Customer choice that leads to innovative choices – like more renewable – will create revenues and jobs. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

18 Refuting Misinformation: 6. RTO formation IS NOT necessary for retail choice to move forward o Myth: RTO formation or membership is necessary for congestion management and scheduling of retail power. o Facts: o Retail choice does take place in markets without an RTO, such as Oregon. o AZISA was formed for just this purpose. o AZISA’s initial interim status is not relevant to the start of retail choice. o Some retail choice markets began without RTO-like functionality, with RTOs implemented later when benefits of doing so were clear. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.

19 Refuting Misinformation: 3. FERC settlements DO NOT demonstrate harm from retail choice o Myth: FERC’s market behavior investigations and imposition of penalties demonstrate that retail choice is harmful and costly to ratepayers. o Facts: o Markets have strong oversight – FERC, FTC, DOJ, CFTC. o Market behavior investigations show that these agencies are doing their job. That does not change with retail choice. o Settlements have been relative to wholesale markets, not retail choice. o ACC determines who gets a license, and continue to have oversight over those licensees. © Constellation Energy Resources, LLC.
