Ofgem’s proposal to revise the Typical Domestic Consumption Values for gas and electricity

TDCV consultation response [ 220 kb]

We are supportive of Ofgem’s decision to update the Typical Domestic Consumption Values (TDCVs) for gas and electricity.

We welcome the publication of standard values for both the national average and regional split between peak and off-peak usage based on settlement data, to help create consistency across industry.

We are supportive of the proposal to use the updated consumption split data for assessing compliance with the prepayment cap, and any other price caps that Ofgem may introduce. Ofgem should consider whether there would be benefit in using the regional data to assess compliance with the prepayment cap, rather than applying the national average. This would ensure that time of use tariffs affected by the cap more accurately reflect consumer usage in each region.
