Today the Utility Regulator has published a consultation on the proposals for the next Power NI supply price control and relevant appendixes. The price control is due to commence on 1 April 2014. It follows on from our approach paper published in February 2013.
The paper outlines the analysis and rationale for our proposed decisions in relation to the main issues within the price control: customer coverage (scope) of regulated tariffs; duration of the price control; operating costs (Opex) levels and allocations; and allowed margin for Power NI.
Following responses to this consultation, final decisions will be taken in autumn/winter of this year.
