LATEST MARKET UPDATE: UK gas and power markets have traded lower across the curve so far this week, with a bearish outlook as Norwegian outages come to an end next month and fears of a second wave of Coronavirus has pushed prices within the wider commodities lower. Oil prices in particular continue to be pressured by the threat of a reduced demand that a second wave of Coronavirus could bring, with prices trading below $40/bbl for the first time since mid-June.

KVA Analysis

An industry shake-up in 2018 saw strict penalties introduced for companies exceeding the available capacity (kVA) on their half-hourly electricity meters. Depending on your distributor, you could pay up to four times your standard rate for exceeding limits. 

Our role at Utility Team is to stop your business from being hit by these non-negotiable charges.

If we hold a valid letter of authority, we’ll check if you’ve gone over your agreed capacity over the last year and offer the necessary support. Don’t be caught out – get in touch as soon as possible if you need our help.


Reducing and increasing your Available Supply Capacity

  • Reducing your available supply capacity
    Distribution costs account for a large chunk of your electricity invoice – around 25-30% – and depend on things like location, site size and Available Supply Capacity.

    If you’ve moved site, you could be paying for more capacity than you actually need. Capacity Matching Projects from Utility Team makes sure the agreement you have in place with your supplier reflects your needs and can lead to huge cost savings. 
  • Increasing your available supply capacity
    Lots of factors can result in your needing to increase your kVA, like buying machinery that increases the amount of electricity you use.

    If you’re drawing more power from the grid, you should make sure your kVA capacity is arranged in advance with your operator. Don’t do this and you risk being landed with a penalty.

    Our kVA Analysis will provide you with an accurate picture of your usage, helping to avoid penalties and ensure you’re only paying for what you need – not a penny more.
