How Direct Power can help you get the best MOP, DC/DA contracts for your UrbanChain electricity supply!
If you are an UrbanChain customer, you already know the benefits of buying renewable energy directly from generators through their peer-to-peer energy exchange. You enjoy competitive prices, traceable green energy, flexibility and choice in your tariff. But did you know that you also need to have valid MOP, DC/DA contracts to ensure accurate billing, supplier transfers, and consumption monitoring for your electricity supply? Without a valid MOP, DC/DA UrbanChain will have problems gaining your meter on the contract start date, leaving you exposed to expensive out of contract rates whilst you wait for the transfer to complete. Additionally, UrbanChain will bill you to estimated instead of actual meter reads. In this blog post, we will explain what MOP, DC/DA contracts are, why you need them, and how Direct Power can help you secure them easily, affordably, and efficiently.
What are MOP, DC/DA contracts?
MOP stands for Meter Operator, DC stands for Data Collector, and DA stands for Data Aggregator. These are three different roles that are involved in the metering and settlement process for half-hourly electricity import and export supplies, such as those covered by UrbanChain supply contracts. All of these services are required, and low cost, so should not be cause for excessive work or worry.
- A MOP is responsible for providing and maintaining your electricity meter and communications, typically on a five-year lease contract.
- A DC is responsible for collecting and processing your electricity data and delivering it to your DA and electricity supplier.
- A DA is responsible for aggregating and validating your electricity data and delivering it to the settlement system.
Why do you need MOP, DC/DA contracts?
Having valid MOP, DC/DA contracts is a mandatory requirement for your electricity supply, as they enable accurate billing, supplier transfers, and consumption monitoring. Without them, you may face the following issues:
- You may be charged incorrect or estimated bills by your supplier, which could result in overpaying or underpaying for your electricity.
- You may experience delays or difficulties in switching suppliers, as your meter data may not be available or consistent for the transfer process.
- You may not be able to access or analyse your electricity consumption data, which could limit your ability to optimise your energy efficiency and savings.
- If you are both importing and exporting you may be unable to reconcile the balance between the two.
