CP1292 – Clarify Meter Administrator requirements relating to PECU arrays

Formal title: Clarify Meter Administrator requirements relating to PECU arrays

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


Elexon raised CP1292 on behalf of the Meter Administrator Expert Group (MAEG). This CP recommends changes to BSCP520 to provide additional clarity for Meter Administrator requirements relating to Photo-Electric Cell Unit (PECU) arrays. The recommended changes will ensure that Half Hourly (HH) Unmetered data is calculated accurately, by having clear requirements for the siting, upkeep and defaulting processes for PECU array data.  This CP proposes changes to the BSCP520 to add clarity and remove the potential of doubt about the correct process, which is essential for the BSCP user. Additionally, the amended BSCP520 will provide a clearer guidance to the Auditor in terms of the expectations on the Meter Administrator following PECU or PECU Array failure.


CP1292 was raised on 01 May 2009. CP1292 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00661. CP1292 was presented to the SVG on 30 June 2009 for a decision on progression. The SVG approved CP1292 and it was implemented as part of the November 2009 Release.
