Terms & Conditions for CUB (UK) Ltd Reduction Reward Scheme – Part of the Demand Flexibility Service

These Terms and Conditions apply to the CUB (UK) Ltd Reduction Rewards Scheme (the “Scheme”). By sending an “Opt In” email to [email protected] to enter into a Scheme, you agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions:

  1. The Scheme will be run by CUB (UK) Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales with registered number 3759889 and registered office 6 Melbourne Avenue, March PE15 0EN (“CUB (UK)”, “our”, “we”, “us”).
  2. By entering this Scheme you are agreeing to be bound by these rules and any other terms and conditions that we may at our absolute discretion apply from time to time (“the Rules”).
  3. The nature of the Rules reflect amongst other matters there being no cost to you in entering into a Scheme.
  4. Under the Scheme once we receive payment from a system operator our payment for the operation of the Scheme is deducted from such receipt prior to us making payment to you under the Scheme.
  5. The Rules are separate to the terms and conditions for energy consultancy that you may have with CUB (UK) and will not affect your rights and obligations under those terms.

Scheme Participation

  1. There is no entry fee and no purchase necessary to enter this Scheme.
  2. To be eligible for the Scheme, you must:

7.1 at all times comply with the Rules;

7.2 allow CUB to access Half-Hourly data and any other information required to administer the Scheme;

7.3 have a meter that can provide the appropriate data requirements as advised by CUB from time to time;

  1. Your participation in the Scheme will start upon your receipt of the Rules and will end on either you or us notifying the other in writing that your participation has ended. All of our rights and interests arising in connection with your participation in the Scheme shall survive the end of your participation in the Scheme.
  2. Customers will be reducing energy usage during a CUB Reduction Reward Event “Event” and they will be able to decide which events they participate in. Prior to each Reduction Reward Event, we will send you a notification of the Event window and the available payment per kWh turn down (the “Incentive”). The Incentive is not fixed and may be different for each Event.
  3. To be eligible for payment, you must opt-in to the Event before it begins, and reduce electricity import as measured by your smart meter compared to a “Baseline” during any of the half-hours of the Event you will earn a reward for each half-hour of the Event that you turn down, against your Baseline.
  4. Approximately six weeks after each event we will send you a statement showing the amount you have earned from the event.
  5. Once the total amount you have earned exceeds £50 please raise an invoice for us to pay, unless you are using our self-billing process in which case we will pay you monthly in arrears.
  6. We will calculate your Baseline using the BSC P376 ‘Utilising a Baseline Methodology to set Physical Notifications’. This methodology looks at up to ten days of your recent smart meter history, excluding days where an Event has taken place, to calculate your average consumption. Other baselines may be used where appropriate.
  7. If your nominated boundary or asset meter becomes disconnected or you move premises, we reserve the right to remove you from the Scheme.
  8. By entering the Scheme, you warrant that all information submitted by you is at all times true, current and complete. If any information you submit is found to be fraudulent or incorrectly completed or if CUB (UK) has reasonable grounds to believe that you have breached any of the Rules, CUB (UK) reserves the right at its absolute discretion to terminate your participation the Scheme.
  9. If at any point you wish to opt-out of the Scheme, please email [email protected] stating OPT OUT and we will remove you.
