firmus energy licence modification Article 14 decision

28 November 2017

Today the Utility Regulator publishes the Article 14 Decision for the ‘Review of Firmus Energy (Supply) Ltd Price Control Scope’. This follows the 28 day consultation for the Article 14 Notice of the licence modification published on 24 October 2017.

The licence modification will reduce the scope of the firmus’ price control to exclude EUC 2 customers in the Ten Towns area.  As of 1 April 2018, non-domestic customers consuming between 2,500 and 25,000 therms (73,200 and 732,000 kWh) per annum will no longer be covered by the price control and thus will be unable to avail of a regulated firmus tariff.

Further information on the rationale of the licence modification can be found in the Consultation Paper which was also published on 24 October 2017.
