The government will provide a discount, to those eligible, on gas and electricity unit prices. To calculate your discount, the estimated wholesale portion of the unit price you would be paying this winter will be compared to a baseline ‘government supported price’ which is lower than currently expected wholesale prices this winter.
The government supported price has been set at £211 per megawatt hour (MWh) for electricity for non-domestic users in NI. This means that the government support will range from 0p to 34.5p per kWh – the maximum discount that will be given.
Please note that government support will be given to the energy component of bills only i.e. pass-throughs and other charges are not supported. Government support will be added as a retrospective adjustment, so we will not know how bills will be impacted until each month end. Government support will only be added to bills if the price being charged for energy exceeds the government's set threshold. For those customers who pay an Energy Price Adjustment, this will also be recalculated accordingly.
