Overview

The BSUoS charge recovers the cost of day-to-day operation of the transmission system. Generators and suppliers are liable for these charges, which are calculated daily as a flat tariff for all users. Historical values of these charges, on a daily basis in a annual file, are provided here. There are a few missing dates and/or settlement periods from the years below under investigation.

We are currently experiencing temporary delays with publishing the very latest data, please bear with us as our teams are informed and any missing data will be published as soon as possible.
