Further update on Capacity Market Supplier Charges

In light of the consultation published by BEIS today on Technical Amendments to the Capacity Market, ESC is willing to continue to hold suppliers’ paid October and November CM Supplier Charges, pending the outcome of the consultation, which envisages potential for ESC to continue to collect the charges during the standstill period. However, if a supplier wishes to receive a refund in the meantime, bearing in mind that BEIS is consulting on whether collections can and should resume in the New Year, we have published a process for this set out in EMR Circular 171.
