This letter sets out the Authority’s decision to grant the Greater London Authority a derogation from various aspects of Standard Licence Condition (SLC) 11 (compliance with codes) of its electricity supply licence.
The Licensee intends to enter the electricity supply market but does not want to be a direct party to the industry codes listed in SLC 11.2. The derogation will enable the Licensee to discharge compliance with the relevant codes to a Third Party Licenced Supplier.
We introduced the Licence Lite policy to ease potential barriers to entry faced by aspiring suppliers. It is an option that helps new suppliers enter the electricity supply market by letting them partner with an existing licenced supplier who would assume responsibility for some of the more costly and technically challenging parts of a supply licence.
