Ovo (S) Gas Limited have given notice to us of their intention to submit a claim for a Last Resort Supply Payment. Ovo is seeking to claim certain additional costs incurred in acting as Supplier of Last Resort (SoLR) to gas customers of the former Cardiff 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 sets out the reasons for our decision to consent to Ovo claiming a Last Resort Supply Payment of up to £45k.  In this case, the claim is for gas customers only and the amount we have consented to will be recovered from relevant gas network companies.
