NIE consultation on payment security arrangements with suppliers

Published: 30 October 2013

Consultation opened on 30 October 2013. Consultation closed 20 December 2013.


Electricity suppliers pay for using NIE’s network through charges such as DUoS (Distribution Use of System) and PSO (Public Service Obligation).

Under NIE’s payment security policy, a policy that is a requirement of their licence, suppliers are obliged to provide payment security for payments due to NIE.  NIE is proposing changes to the level of payment security cover suppliers provide and has launched a consultation on their proposals.

Further details on the consultation and how to respond are available on NIE’s website.
