DCP 161 Tag

As of April 2018, two new energy regulations called DCP 228 and DCP 161 will come into force in the United Kingdom. Officially titled Distribution Change Proposal 228 for Revenue Matching in the Common Distribution Charging Methodology, DCP 228 will have a significant impact on the calculation of electricity distribution charges - which can make up to 19% of a customer's bill. Under DCP 161, consumers who exceed their capacity will be charged an excess capacity rate which could be up to three times higher than the standard rate. Read on to find out exactly what DCP 228 and DCP 161 will mean for your energy bill and how your business and customers will be affected.
