P366 Change to Supplier Charge SP08a for hard-to-read sites
P366 will amend how Supplier Charge SP08a is applied to Non Half Hourly non-domestic Meters that are hard-to-read (HTR). This will be achieved in two parts. Firstly, P366 will create a process to identify and approve HTR sites. Secondly, P366 will create a process whereby HTR sites, identified at Metering System Identification (MSID) level, will be excluded from SP08a calculations. Only SP08a Supplier Charges will be affected. HTR sites will still be included in all other Settlement and PARMS calculations, where relevant. P366 will not affect the management of Settlement Risk.
