Notes:

  1 PES Data Management charges are included in distribution charges. The annual charge level shown is price controlled. The set up and operational costs breakdown shown reflects the assumptions made in the price control.

  2 Other costs include costs associated with the new Data Transfer Service and the establishment and operation of the Master Registration Agreement that are not covered under other headings.

  3 Scottish Settlement set up costs are met 30 per cent by generators and 70 per cent by suppliers.

  4 Assessed set up costs are recovered over a five year period. Hence the allowable charge per year is calculated by (Set Up Costs x5)+Annual Operating Costs.

  5 Latest estimates of initial operating costs.

  6 Pool and Scottish Settlement operating costs are met by both generators and suppliers 50/50 for the Pool and 30/70 for Scottish Settlement.

  7 For 1999-2000 this was reduced by about £50 million because of the delays in implementing market opening.
