Today the Utility Regulator publishes its decision on modifications to all gas supply and conveyances licences, in order to introduce new Gas Supplier of Last Resort (SoLR) licence conditions.

The decision follows a statutory consultation and information paper  which was published on 16th April 2018.

We received 2 formal consultation responses from the following:

A confidential response was also received but this is not published as the respondent requested to remain anonymous.

There are no changes to the draft licence condition text which was consulted on. These modifications once effective, will require all gas supply and gas conveyance licence holders to comply with the established SoLR arrangements should a SoLR event materialise. It also ensures that domestic and business gas customers maintain a continuity of supply should a SoLR event transpire.

Any queries in relation to the notice of decision should be sent to:
