This Order amends sections 32F, 32I and 32K of the Electricity Act 1989 (c.29) (“the Act”).
Section 37 of the Energy Act 2008 (c.32) replaces sections 32 to 32C of the Act with sections 32 to 32M from 1st April 2009. Sections 32F and 32I contain references to the Energy (Northern Ireland) Order 2003 (S.I. 2003/419 (N.I. 6)). Following the making of the Energy (Amendment) Order (Northern Ireland) 2009 (S.R.
