You may also refer the dispute to the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority (known as Ofgem) within twelve months of the date on which your connection was made to our Distribution System. Ofgem will require that you give UK Power Networks and the Energy Ombudsman an adequate opportunity to resolve any complaint or dispute before any action is taken by them. Ofgem’ s decision will be enforceable as if it were a judgement of the Court and will include such provisions as it considers appropriate which may include who pays its costs in determining the dispute. Ofgem may give directions to us as to the terms on which we are to make or maintain a connection pending determination of the dispute.
