PUBLIC NOTICE UNDER ARTICLE 10(4) OF THE ELECTRICITY (NORTHERN IRELAND) ORDER 1992 (the Order)

Pursuant to Article 10(4) of the Order the Northern Ireland Authority for Utility Regulation (the Authority), hereby gives notice as follows:

1 It proposes, in accordance with Article 10 (1) of the Order, to grant a licence to supply electricity to ContourGlobal Solutions (Northern Ireland) Limited, a limited company having its registered office at 83 Baker Street, London, W1U 6LA (the “Proposed Licensee”).

2 Such licence would enable the Proposed Licensee to supply the premises specified and designated at Schedule 1 of the proposed licence.

3 The Authority considers that the grant of the proposed licence would be an appropriate course of action for it to take as such grant is in keeping with the Authority’s principal statutory objective in that it protects the interests of consumers of electricity supplied by authorised suppliers, wherever appropriate by promoting effective competition between persons engaged in, or in commercial activities connected with, the generation, transmission or supply of electricity.

4 The Authority further considers that the application made by the Proposed Licensee has been made in the prescribed manner and confirms that the appropriate fee has been submitted.

5 The purpose of this public notice is to bring to the attention of persons likely to be affected by the grant of the proposed licence referred to above and to invite representations or objections in connection thereto. Any representations or objections with respect to the proposed licence may be made on or before Monday 07th September 2009.
