DCP 161 - Are You Ready For April 2018?
From 1st April 2018, DCP 161 will be in force. DCP 161 is a new measure which has been introduced by Ofgem to ensure that half hourly (HH) supplies that exceed their assigned available capacity pay significantly more. It is a change to the DCUSA (Distribution Connection and Use of System Agreement) that will introduce excess capacity penalties for half hourly electricity supplies. This change will ensure that the additional costs that DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) can incur when customers exceed their available capacity levels are recovered.
