Ofgem has confirmed it will extend the ‘small generator discount’ to 31 March 2021. It had been due to expire March 2019.
The discount given to distribution connected generators is 25% of TNUoS generation and demand residual charges, and is picked up via consumer bills.
The discount had originally been set to expire last March, but was extended. Due to ongoing major charging and access reforms, Ofgem will extend it again to 2021 until new arrangements are agreed and in place.
The regulator said smaller generators should not expect it to be extended again, even if some aspects of embedded benefit reforms are not implemented by that time.
