What is the Capacity Charge and how does it work?

The Capacity Charge applies to large businesses with a Low Voltage Maximum Demand meter.

The charge relates to each unit of electricity used during the hours of 17:00-19:00 Monday to Friday during the Winter months: (1st November – End of February, inclusive)

It is designed to reflect the high cost of producing electricity during these hours - as there is the most demand on the electricity network at these times.
