Introduction of Tariff Design by the Licensee:
The tariff design so filed in the ARR by the respective licensee may include the following:
- CRITICAL Peak Pricing: High costs of supply are usually observed for a few days during a year, directly connected with extreme low or high temperatures. CPP charges consumers significantly high prices under predetermined trigger conditions for these days. This type of rate is thus an additive one and can be combined with any other (usually TOU) tariff.
- Real Time Pricing Tariff: In the day-ahead RTP tariff, consumers are informed 24 hours in advance about the estimated prices so they are able to plan their next day electricity usage
Clause (8) Sub Clause (5): The Commission may modify the proposal as deemed fit in order to ensure its consistency with overall objectives.
