What is a standing charge?

  • Updated

This is a daily charge that relates to the fixed costs associated with running the District Supply Scheme. It will differ depending on what the Building Owner or Managing Agent chooses to recover, but could typically include:

  • Main energy meter standing charge
  • HIU maintenance
  • Meter replacement costs
  • Energy centre maintenance 
  • Applicable VAT

The number of days you have been billed for is multiplied by the standing charge to produce the total chargeable amount. For more information on how your tariff has been calculated, click here.
