Our business plan

 

 

 

Over the past two years, you've engaged with us to help us build a business plan that delivers your priorities. We would like to thank you for your insights and contributions. Find out more about how you shaped our business plan.

We're pleased to publish the final business plan for the period 2021-2026, which has been submitted to Ofgem on Monday 9 December 2019. 

We want to be as transparent as possible, so in addition to publishing the business plan, we'll also be publishing supporting evidence that underpins the plan to help you. You can watch our presentation about our final business plan here.

The Independent Stakeholder Group has challenged and scrutinised our plan over the past 18 months. Their report and challenge log were submitted to Ofgem.

All of this will also support you participating fully in the next phase of the price control process including responding to Ofgem’s call for evidence ahead of an open hearing on our proposals, which will take place in the Spring. More details can be found on Ofgem’s website.
