Wholesaler

A company is required to hold a Wholesaler Licence issued by the EMA if it:
(i) generates electricity by means of a generating unit which has a name-plate rating of 1 MW or more but less than 10 MW and the generating unit(s) is connected to the power grid;

(ii) provides ancillary services or any electricity-related product or service through a load reduction;

(iii) supplies, sells or offers to sell electricity generated at specified premises by the Licensee by means of a generating unit described in (i) to a non-residential consumer at the same specified premises.

For generating units of less than 10 MW that wish to be paid for the electricity it exports to the power grid, the generating unit(s) must be registered with the Market Company or the Market Support Services Licensee under the Enhanced Central Intermediary Scheme (ECIS).

Consumers can participate in the wholesale electricity market through reducing their load during times of high wholesale electricity price or system supply shortage under the Demand Response Programme and Interruptible Load Scheme respectively. For consumers who wish to offer either individual load facility or aggregated load facilities of multiple contestable consumers within the same specific zone to be reduced, the minimum load reduction of the individual or aggregated load facilities is 0.1 MW.

A company with a Wholesaler Licence can supply, sell or offer to sell electricity generated at a Specified Premises to a non-residential consumer at the same Specified Premises. Specified Premises are defined as any premises that: (a) are lawfully used or occupied by the Licensee for the purpose of generating electricity through a generating unit on the premises for supply and sale by the Licensee of the electricity to one or more consumers who lawfully use or occupy the premises for non-residential purposes; and (b) are also supplied electricity from a transmission system. These premises can include: (i) a single building; and (ii) a cluster of buildings under a single master-sub metering arrangement.
