Consumer research for distribution price control review

Ofgem consultation (2 pages, PDF) on the results of consumer research (114 pages, PDF) (and 154-page PDF annex) ahead of the electricity distribution price control review.

The main result from the consumer research is a set of stated-preference estimates of willingness to pay for specific improvements of service by electricity distribution companies, or additional obligations that might be imposed on them. This includes an estimate that customers are willing to pay £5.43 a year (residential) or 2.1 per cent of their total electricity bill (business) for their electricity distribution company to “replace 10% mobile generation equipment and vehicles per year with those using less polluting fuels”.
