£3.07 per kW

Where Guernsey Electricity is required to provide a standby electricity service for behind the meter generation systems, such as solar PV arrays and CHPs, with a capacity in excess of 25kW, a monthly standby charge is applied for every kW of installed capacity. The standby rate for new installations is £3.07 per kW. This rate has been set by CICRA as an interim decision. The previous rate for the standby electricity service was £6.8594 per kW . This recently introduced reduced rate only applies where the customer and GEL agrees to reimburse the other should the subsequent regulatory final decision (or of comparable legal standing) set a different rate.
