What does this accounting service option provide?

This accounting service allows energy flows to be distributed between a lead consumption site and a hosted site(site en décompte) based on a declaring metering mode, while awaiting installation of RTE meters.

If you are a lead site, this service allows you to differentiate energy flows corresponding to a hosted site.

If you are a  hosted site, this service allows you to isolate your energy flows and freely exercise your choice of electricity supplier. Your flows will be assigned to the balance responsible party of your choice, which may be separate from the one chosen by the lead customer.

How do I subscribe?

Each customer must subscribe to an accounting service with RTE.

The contracting steps are as follows

You are a lead customer:

You need to request RTE to install meters While awaiting installation of RTE meters, you are required to

  • contract with RTE an Optional Services Contract (Contrat de Prestations Annexes) in order to subscribe to the "accounting service Option B”, and choose the billing terms (cheque, wire transfer or direct debit).
  • accept the CART update proposed by RTE, to take into account the new meter.
  • inform your balance responsible party of the subscription to the metering service.
  • where relevant, accept the update of your operating agreement.

During the subscription of the service, you must declare the metering data of the hosted site in the manner defined by RTE in the form.

Note: if you have more than one hosted site, you need to subscribe to as many services as there are hosted sites

You are a hosted customer (client en décompte):

  • You need to contract with RTE an Optional Services Contract in order to subscribe to the "accounting service Option F", and choose the billing terms (cheque, wire transfer or direct debit).

  • You then need to designate a balance responsible party for your site by providing an attachment agreement (Annex C7) in accordance with the MA-RE Terms and Conditions (Section 2).

Note: Once RTE meters have been installed, the contracts will be modified so that customers subscribe to the service "Identifying the energy flows of a  hosted consumer".
