Ofgem consultation on WPD IDNO charging proposal

Ofgem consultation (1 page, PDF) on a proposal (16 pages, PDF) by electricity distribution company Western Power Distribution (WPD) to adopt a new method for setting access charges for independent distribution network operators. WPD states that the proposed charges would allow a profit margin between 15 and 48 per cent for independent distribution network operators, and would not amount to an anti-competitive margin squeeze prohibited by Article 82 or the Competition Act 1998 (or the distribution licence). Responses by Tuesday 20 November 2007.
