The CRU grants, revokes and enforces Electricity Supply Licences. Any person or company who intends to supply electricity to a final customer requires a supply licence from the CRU.

Applications for an electricity supply licence are made directly to the CRU using the CRU Supply Licence Application Form. The CRU will process applications when all of the information requested in this form is submitted.
These requirements apply for all supply licence applicants, regardless of the size of the planned supply business. Use the Electricity Supply Licence Guidance Notes when applying.
