With the triad season starting in November and ending in February, is your business prepared for the changes ahead? Triads are the method used to set the price of Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges for non-domestic consumers with half-hourly meters. This charge is based on consumption for the three half-hourly settlement periods with the highest system demand.
