Electronic Filing

On November 18, 2010, the Ohio Power Siting Board issued an entry in Case No.10-2404-GE-WVR to permit Electronic Filing in all Power Siting cases. Electronic Filers who are approved to file in PUCO cases are now automatically permitted to e-file in OPSB cases. Hard copy requirements are waived except for certificate applications under Rule 4906-1-11(A) of the Administrative Code.

  • 4906-1-11(A) - When an application for a certificate is submitted to the board, there shall be furnished to the board an original of such application and twenty-five copies.  (Not waived per 10-2404-GE-WVR)
  • 4906-1-11(B) - Except as may otherwise be required by Chapters 4906-1 to 4906-17 of the Administrative Code or expressly requested by the board, at the time motions, petitions, documents or other papers are filed with the board, there shall be furnished to the board an original of such papers and ten copies.  (Waived per 10-2404-GE-WVR)

For certificate applications, e-filers must still provide an original and 25 copies along with a cover letter notifying the Docketing Division that the application was e-filed. No e-filing of confidential documents is permitted. Copies shall be submitted to:  PUCO/OPSB Docketing Division, 11th Floor, 180 East Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215.

A Participation Agreement must be received by Docketing before documents can be electronically filed.  See Electronic Filing Information & Links for more detailed information.
