What role does National Grid play in my energy bill?

We receive a lot of questions about how your household energy bills are made up, and which parts of your bill relate to National Grid.

The bill you receive from your energy supplier is made up of a number of separate charges. Some of these charges are based on the different stages through which electricity makes its way from the producers to your home, so we explain this journey and where National Grid fits in.
