BSC Modification Proposal P449 was raised by National Grid Electricity System Operator on 1 November 2022. We understand that the proposed modification seeks to enable Elexon to act as scheme administrator for the Government’s Energy Bill Relief Scheme for non-domestic electricity customers. The Modification will also extend Elexon’s vires under the BSC to undertake a new non-Settlement related function administering the scheme.

We received a request that P449 be treated as an Urgent BSC Modification Proposal. We have decided that BSC Modification P449 should be progressed on an urgent basis for the reasons set out in this letter.
