Help for small local power producers trying to find their way through the complexities of the electricity market in England and Wales is now available in the form of a new guide. Electricity Production Connected to the Local Network has been produced by the Association of Electricity Producers (AEP), with backing from the Department of Trade and Industry. The guide will help existing power producers and those that want to enter the market and covers commercial and technical issues. David Porter from the AEP says: "We have a very open and competitive electricity market. But it is not an easy business to be in. This guide will help small players understand how it works."
