The Utility Regulator has today published a Strategy Paper for the next NIE T&D price control, also referred to as RP5 (Regulatory Period 5).
The paper sets out the background to NIE T&D price controls and outlines the form of RP4 – the current price control due to end 31 March 2012. It also describes issues which will need to be considered for RP5. The paper aims to give stakeholders an opportunity to raise issues which they consider relevant, and to help formulate thinking prior to the Utility Regulator forming a view on the structure and content of RP5. Further and more detailed consultations on specific aspects of RP5 will be published at later stages.
The Utility Regulator welcomes feedback from a wide range of stakeholders. Responses to this consultation should be returned by 5.00pm on 1 October 2010, preferably in electronic format to:
