Meet Tim, the battery designer keeping carbon neutral with solar power

Tim from PB Designs with Bristol Energy in factory

Our renewable power isn’t always generated amongst rolling green hills and flowing rivers – it’s often thanks to businesses right on our doorstep.

Meet Tim, MD of PB Design in the coastal town of Clevedon, near Bristol.

PB Designs make battery chargers and systems that can be used as essential backup in hospitals, the London tube, and leading tourist attractions like the Eden Project.

The business started in a garage, but the factory is now home to 57 members of staff, all of whom have a stake in the business.

What is the Excess Capacity Charge (DCP161)?

The Excess Capacity Charge, or DCP161, is a legislation, introduced from April 2018, that could affect business electricity customers who have a half-hourly settled meter.

The DCP161 is a change to the DCUSA (Distribution Connection and Use of System Agreement).

The change will remove the excess capacity charge discount that has previously been applied in circumstances where customers breach their contracted capacities.

When will the Excess Capacity Charge be implemented?

The implementation of the Excess Capacity Charge (DCP161) is 1st April 2018
