CALF Values

The CALF values for 1 December 2020 – 28 February 2021 are now available from the Credit/Credit Alerting section under the Financial and Credit menu on the Elexon Portal.

We previously noted that Lead Parties of a BM Unit could appeal an assigned CALF for the Winter 2020 BSC Season if it is believed that it does not accurately represent your expected activity. However, the deadline was 1 November.

You can find out more about CALF appeals, please see Section 12 of the CALF Guidance document.

About the CALF
