«Submission to the Commission of Energy Regulation from the Irish Home Builders Association / Construction Industry Federation, June 1st 2006 ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

The above would be my initial response to the document sent and knowing that time is of the essence, the ESB would need to act quickly to provide the further information that this office would require in order to finalise a reasonable report, as this I believe must take place within the next two weeks.

I hope the above is of use to you at this moment.

Yours Sincerely, _______________

Basil Conroy Cer06/119 Correspondence 2 Dear Kevin, Further to our previous discussions, I confirm the following I have received your second document as issued by the ESB (i.e. 2004 issue) and have to report that nothing further has been provided in the way of cost breakdowns that would allow any further scrutiny of the charges being levied.

On page six of the document it states “Connection charges are based on a number of principles namely (1) Equality of treatment (2) Economic efficiency and (3) Simplicity”. this is further expanded on page seven where it states “Economic efficiency is desirable as it encourages the best use of scarce resources. This means that the connection charges should transparently favour customer decisions that make the best use of resources” It also goes on to say about simplicity “Any system of connection charges should be as simple as possible - this has a number of advantages (1) Faster quotation to customers (2) Easy for the customer to understand and (3) Reduction in administrative and auditing overheads On all of the above, I have to say that the documents appear neither simple or transparent. In fact they will have to be transparent before the customer can agree with their above statement that he (the customer) can choose the best use of resources as they put it.

Lastly, I do concur with your view that in many cases the ESB are extremely late in carrying out the requested connections and this certainly in my experience has led to major difficulties for both the client and a builder and all the knock-on effects that the non-connection of the building in question will cause to the end-user. If and when we establish that the connections are accurately priced by the ESB (if that indeed proves to be the case) then the commensurate quality of service has to go with the price before a judgement can be made on the value for money or otherwise.

I hope the above is of further use in this matter.

Yours sincerely Basil Conroy.

Managing Director,
