In June 2021, we consulted on our minded to positions for three key policy areas within the scope of our Access and Forward-looking Charges Significant Code Review: distribution connection charging, the definition and choice of access rights, and transmission charges for small distributed generators. That consultation closed in August 2021, and we publish the non-confidential responses alongside this document.
This further consultation sets out updates to our minded to positions that respond to the feedback we received. It reaffirms the high-level proposals we put forward for distribution connection charging and access rights, offering opportunity to comment on additional details and clarifications. It also outlines that we no longer intend to direct changes to transmission network use of system charges under the Access SCR, including the application of these charges to small distributed generators.
