Thank you for your patience.
All CRES Providers submitting for registration in AEP Ohio are required to participate in EDI Certification Flight Testing. This Testing is a collaborative effort involving multiple registering CRES Providers over a defined period. The CRES Provider and its contracted EDI Vendor or In-house EDI Service are expected to maintain necessary and timely communication with AEP and also between the CRES Provider and the EDI Vendor; and must agree to timely responses throughout Testing. No response or late response to requested test transactions delay both the testing and ultimately the completed registration of all CRES Provider participants. If an EDI Vendor, In-House EDI Service, or CRES Provider is found to be unresponsive or uncooperative during the Testing, the CRES Provider (and its contracted EDI Vendor or In-house EDI Service) will be removed from the ongoing EDI Flight Test and the pending CRES Provider registration will be suspended. The non-performing CRES Provider will be evaluated for inclusion in a future EDI Flight Test.
Partner Setup Form and the
Trading Partner Checklist
must be completed and mailed to Ohio Choice Operations at least 30 days prior to the proposed batch start date of Phase 1 of the
EDI certification testing. Please see the EDI Test Schedules page for the proposed start dates.
These forms contain details and specific contact numbers and addresses. Additional details of the Ohio Electric
Implementation Guides are available on the
Data Exchange Workgroup site.
The Ohio EDI Working Group (OEWG) has approved a standard list of acceptable SAC04 codes to be used on 810 transactions for utility consolidated billing. Both the Ohio EDI implementation guidelines and the EDI change control request form can be found on the PUCO website. AEP Ohio will reject any 810s that have blanks where the SAC04 codes should appear.
The service delivery identification (SDI) number will be used in lieu of a customer account number for
all EDI transactions in Ohio. The SDI number is assigned first to a specific premise (physical location),
and second at the tariff level. The relationship of the SDI to the customer account number is a "many to one"
relationship. It is possible that multiple SDIs belong to one customer account number. All SDIs associated
to the same premise and customer will be billed on one monthly billing when the bill is presented by AEP Ohio.
A different provider can be selected for each SDI by the customer. The SDI number will always stay with the premise
location. The SDI does not stay with the customer after moving to another location.
If this same premise had multiple numbers of lights such as two - 175 Watt Mercury Vapor
enclosed lights, three- 100 Watt High Pressure Sodium enclosed lights, and one- 400 Watt
High Pressure Sodium Floodlight, there would still be four SDIs. In the case of outdoor
lights, the tariff is based upon the size and type; the quantity does not matter. So, both
175 Watt Mercury Vapor enclosed lights would be covered by one SDI. The same would be true
of the three 100 Watt High Pressure Sodium lights, which would be covered by one SDI. The
one 400 Watt High Pressure Sodium Floodlight would also have an SDI, since it has a unique
type and size.
The SDI is a 17 character number with the following format:
* The AEP Ohio rate jurisdiction code for Ohio Power is 07, and the code for Columbus Southern Power is 10.
