Daily Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) Cost Data

The BSUoS charge recovers the cost of day-to-day operation of the transmission system. Generators and suppliers are liable for these charges, which are calculated daily as a flat tariff for all users. Historical values of these charges, on a daily basis in a annual file, are provided here. There are a few missing dates and/or settlement periods from the years below under investigation.
