DCP161 – What you need to know about new Ofgem penalties

Monday, March 12th, 2018

The way businesses use energy is continuing to come under scrutiny particularly for those larger energy users.

Ofgem started the process with the introduction of the P272 legislation. This moved maximum demand supplies (those with a profile number of between 05 and 08) to become half hourly supplies. Part of the rational behind this was to increase transparency in when energy is being used and when not.


What is P272 and does it affect me?

P272 is the name for a new Ofgem regulation that will affect how electricity usage and charges are calculated in future for certain supplies.

The regulation will only affect you if your supply is Profile 05, 06, 07 or 08, often called Maximum Demand Supplies. Check the MPAN supply number on your bill. Look for a letter “S” followed by two rows of numbers, and if the first two digits on the top line are 05 – 08 you are affected.
