This is our final consultation on updating the smart metering allowances (the Smart Metering Net Cost Change or SMNCC allowances) for credit and PPM meters in the default tariff cap in time for Winter 2022. This consultation covers cap period nine and beyond.

In this paper we consult on COVID-19 and installation costs, rollout, updates to general economic inputs and other areas.

We would like views from stakeholders with an interest in the level of the default tariff cap. We particularly welcome responses from domestic energy suppliers, consumer groups and the public. If you wish to respond to this consultation, please send your views to by Wednesday 01 June 2022.
