Ovo have given notice to us of their intention to submit a claim for a Last Resort Supply Payment for Ovo (S) Gas Limited – formerly Southern Electric Gas Limited – and Ovo (S) Electricity Limited – formerly SSE Electricity Limited.

Ovo is seeking to claim certain additional costs incurred in acting as Supplier of Last Resort (SoLR) to customers of the former Brilliant Energy Supply Limited. A SoLR may make a claim for a Last Resort Supply Payment from relevant distribution networks where we have given our consent to the amount claimed.

This letter explains the reasons for our decision to consent to Ovo claiming a Last Resort Supply Payment of up to £711k.
