What is a Deemed tariff?
A Deemed Tariff is provided for under Schedule 6 of the Electricity Act 1989 and Schedule 2B of the Gas Act 1986.
It arises where a supplier already supplies electricity and/or gas to a property and there is no formal supply agreement in place with the customer. Typically, this occurs where a person moves into a property and has not agreed specific contractual terms with the current supplier, this ensures there is continuity of supply (i.e. the property remains on supply, even where the occupiers may change).
