Consultation description

There is currently an exception to the smart meter roll-out licence conditions that allows the installation of advanced meters to meet the roll-out obligation at designated non-domestic sites prior to 6 April 2016, and after 6 April 2016 where there is an existing contractual agreement to do so. In December 2015 the Government confirmed that the end-date would be extended from 6 April 2016, to:

  • 28 April 2017 for large suppliers; and
  • 17 August 2017 for small suppliers.

The government also confirmed that advanced meters may be installed beyond the exception end-date where contracts are in place prior to 6 April 2016, maintaining current arrangements.

This consultation seeks stakeholders’ views on draft amendments to Supply Licence Conditions to give effect to these decisions.
