Review of Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme and Common Tariff Obligation

Closes 23 Sep 2022

Opened 29 Jul 2022

Overview

The Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme and Common Tariff Obligation help protect consumers in the North of Scotland from the high costs of electricity distribution in that area.

The government must review the schemes every 3 years, and this consultation forms part of the review process.

We propose to retain both schemes in their current form, subject to some minor technical improvements to the funding arrangements of the Hydro Benefit Replacement Scheme.

We would like views from any interested parties on whether the schemes continue to meet their policy objectives and are operationally effective.
