Minimise Your Excess Capacity Charges With Tritility

What Are Capacity Charges?

Capacity charges are essentially a charge paid to an energy supplier to ensure that electricity and gas are available for your business to use when you need it, whether that is during peak demand times or out of hours when the grid is producing less energy. They are based on the highest amount of energy you are estimated to use or consume during a month.

These charges are levied by your Distribution Network Operator (DNO) as part of the Distribution Use of System (DUoS) fee you pay on your bill. This covers the cost of supplying energy from the pylon to your site.

Why Do Suppliers Use Capacity Charges?

Capacity charges are used to recover the additional costs that DNOs (Distribution Network Operators) can incur when customers exceed their available and contracted capacity levels. The rates reflect the costs incurred or reasonably expected to be incurred, by the DNO Party in its Distribution Business.

How Will This Impact My Business?

Additional charges for an excess amount of energy being used can be significantly higher than the standard rate. These rates vary by region and are higher in areas where there is a higher demand for capacity. If your business regularly incurs these charges you could be spending far more on your energy than necessary due to poor planning or unforeseen circumstances.

If your business is regularly incurring excess capacity charges then you will need to agree a revised capacity or take energy-saving measures to reduce your maximum demand.

Working With Tritility
