The AzCPA has long supported retail access. Our view is that there are essentially two models--vertically integrated and competitive--and that the competitive model is further divided into retail and wholesale. While most of our efforts have been focused on ensuring a competitive wholesale market, we believe that consumers benefit from a competitive retail market as well.
The ACC has made several attempts at retail access...the latest ended in 2013. It's a long process and we are starting it again. The title and docket info are below. I will cover the meeting on the 25th and 26th. Let me know if you would like more information.
