Energy Act 2004

Section 179: Meaning of electricity supply

444.Section 179 provides for electricity conveyed by a transmission system to a substation, and then supplied from there to premises, to be brought within the definition of supply in section 4 of the Electricity Act 1989, as amended by the Utilities Act. This will close an anomaly in the definition of supply which defines electricity supply as supply by means of a distribution system and therefore excludes the conveyance of electricity to customers whose supply of electricity does not pass through a distribution network.
