  • Synopsis

    At present UK Power Networks raises most HH DUoS bills electronically via the D2021.

    However there remain a small volume that are sent on paper.

    These generate a few hundred paper invoices per month and account for 0.33% of HH DUoS turnover. There is an overhead in printing and despatching these invoices as compared to the e-billing solution.

    If profile classes 5-8 become settled half-hourly this number is likely to increase (depending on suppliers’ portfolios).

    This issue is therefore brought forward in order to discuss and understand what barriers there might currently be to mandating e-billing under Section 2A of DCUSA and to explore whether those barriers can be overcome.
