IR/TEIS Protocol for Resolving Definitions & Capitalized Words
The 5 columns of this table reflect IR/TEIS process for resolving ‘definition’ conflicts:
    Glossary Committee Defined Term: Y=Is or should be
    Term Defined by IR/TEIS: term specific to industry but may be too granular for Glossary. Looking for
       BPS and EC input
    Term Remain Capitalized: term not specific to RXQ, and/or defined by third-party and should remain
       capitalized (e.g. X12 codes, etc)
    Lowercase. Terms to be modified to lowercase
    Comments: Terms that should be investigated for a number of reasons including: consistency with
       other uses; use of acronyms; use of abbreviations;

A question mark in a column suggests that IR/TEIS is not sure if this term should be in that category.

IR/TEIS Candidates for Glossary
The following concepts are global with respect RXQ books (e.g. 3, 8, 9). Since they will be ‘related standards’
in many if not all books, RXQ should consider moving these terms into a central location (Glossary?). Or as
MBP’s somewhere?

Customer ID
The ‘Customer ID’ data element is the unique identification of a Customer in a marketplace. In all NAESB
market models, the Distribution Company assigns the Customer ID to a Customer.

Two models are supported for Customer ID:
   Account Number of the Distribution Company. In this marketplace model, the account number of the
     Distribution Company defines the unique Customer ID for a Customer.
   Service Delivery ID. In this marketplace model either a Distribution Company defines the unique
     Customer ID for a Customer using the ID for the service delivery location (e.g. ESI ID).

In cases where the Customer is not assigned to a Supplier, an additional data element is required to confirm that
the Customer ID provided is correct. The ZIP Code for the Customer must be provided whenever the Supplier
is not the Supplier of Record. This includes both Customer Information requests as well as initial enrollment

Old Customer ID
NAESB marketplaces provide a vehicle in case a Distribution Company needs to change the Customer ID key
for a Customer. For example, if the Distribution Company implements a new CIS system, they may need to
assign new account numbers. If the Distribution Company uses this Account Number as the Customer ID,
some cross-reference is needed between the old Customer ID and the new one. The Distribution Company
should provide both the Old Customer ID and the current Customer ID in transactions for 90 days.

Non-Billing Party Account ID
NAESB marketplaces require Billing Parties and Registration Agents to store the Non-Billing Party Account ID
if provided by the Non-Billing Party. For example, when a Supplier enrolls a Customer, they must include the
Customer ID, but may also choose to include their Account ID from their internal systems. If provided, this
Account ID should be echoed in all future transactions.

Commodity Service Type
NAESB marketplaces allow only one type of commodity (i.e. electric or gas) in a transaction.

Sender, Receiver, Distribution Company, Supplier, Registration Agent, Billing and Non-Billing Party
NAESB standards support transactions flowing in multiple directions, including:
   Usage can flow from Distribution Company to Registration Agent, Registration Agent to Supplier, and
     Distribution Company to Supplier
   Invoices and Payments can flow from Distribution Company to Supplier and Supplier to Distribution

NAESB practices are often worded using defined terms Billing Party and Non-Billing Party. While the Data
Dictionary retains these terms, the Technical specifications (X12) do not use these terms and rather require that
parties define themselves and their trading partners in each transaction as both:

                                       Capitalized Word Review Document

    a) the type of entity (e.g. Distribution Company), and
    b) whether the defined entity is the sender/submitter, or receiver.

Entity ID
Supplier Entity ID, Distribution Company Entity ID, Sender Entity ID, Receiver Entity ID, Billing Party Entity ID, Non-Billing Party Entity ID
NAESB marketplaces require trading partners to use Entity ID’s in inner and outer transaction envelopes,
including name segments such as the X12 N1 and NM1.

See ‘Entity Common Code ID’ in ‘Related Standards’ for more information.

Usage ID Cross Reference
The Usage ID data element serves as a cross reference between the Usage and the associated Invoice and

In X12, these data elements are used for the cross-reference:
 867 – BPT02 – This document establishes the Usage ID cross reference number.
 810 – BIG05 – This document must have the cross reference number from the respective 867.
 820 – REF6O (letter O) – When making the other party whole, the 820 to the non-billing party must also
    include the cross reference number from 867/810 document.

Service Period, Start Date, End Date
NAESB energy marketplaces use the Service Period to define discrete units. Usage is created and if necessary
cancelled by Service Period dates, which include a Start Date and an End Date. Invoices are created, and if
necessary cancelled, using the Service Period originally defined in the Usage transaction.

Restatements of both Usage and Invoice transactions are done using a new Service Period, which creates a new
discrete unit.

Service Periods should be overlap from month to month. For example, last month’s Service Period End Date
should equal this month’s Service Period Start Date.

                   Service Period Start Date      Service Period End Date
First Report         DTM~150~20050501               DTM~151~20050601
Second Report        DTM~150~20050601               DTM~151~20050701

Meter exchanges
Usage information is divided into two separate reports when a meter is exchanged:
 The first report starts with the Service Period Start Date and ends with the Meter Exchange Date
 The second report starts with the Meter Exchange Date and ends with the Service Period End Date
??since overlap, which report gets overlapped date?

                   Service Period Start Date       Meter Exchange Date         Service Period End Date
First Report         DTM~150~20010101              DTM~514~20010114

Party Sending Bill & Calculating Charges
Technical specifications often require data elements that define billing model for the defined Customer. The
table below summarizes the use of the Billing Party and Party Calculating Charges data elements, using X12 as
an example.

Meter Type
The Meter Type data element uses a five-character field to identify what the measure is reporting, and in what
interval. The first two characters are the type of consumption/demand, the last three characters are the metering
interval reported by the metering agent. Valid values can be a combination of the following values:
               Type of Consumption                  Metering Interval Reported for Billing Purposes
K1        Kilowatt Demand (kW)
K2        Kilovolt Amperes Reactive Demand (kVAR)   [nnn]    Number of minutes from 001 to 999
K3        Kilovolt Amperes Reactive Hour (kVARH)    DAY      Daily
K4        Kilovolt Amperes (kVA)                    MON      Monthly
KH        Kilowatt Hour (kWh)

KHMON               kiloWatt hours Per Month
K1015               kiloWatt demand per 15 minute interval

Clearinghouse v. Registration Agent v. ERCOT
For usage, ERCOT collects all usage from meter reading entity, takes a part of the usage transaction for
settlement purposes, then forwards usage to supplier.

For enrollment, ERCOT serves as registration agent for service location, deciding supplier of record.

Do we need a consistent term? Or multiple terms?

Should ERCOT only be used when specifically talking about Texas (ie except for codes, rarely since our
standards are generic)? Can we leave references to ERCOT as an example?
