This consultation invites comments on our proposals to modify Albion Eco Limited’s Instrument of Appointment to introduce three new conditions and amend some of the existing conditions, in advance of the expanded retail market for business customers which is opening in April 2017. These changes have already been made to all other companies’ Instruments of Appointment.
Under section 55 of the Water Act 2014 (WA14) the Water Services Regulation Authority (Ofwat) may modify the conditions of an appointment under Chapter 1 of Part 2 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91) where it considers it necessary or expedient to do so in consequence of provision made by or under Part 1 of WA14.
This consultation fulfils our requirement under section 55 to consult the holder of the IoA that we propose to modify, together with the Secretary of State, Welsh Ministers and anybody else we think is appropriate.
Albion Eco and other stakeholders, including the Secretary of State and the Welsh Ministers, are invited to respond to this consultation by 24 March 2017. Please email your responses to [email protected] or post them to:
