What is CSSConnect?
CSSConnect is a Central Switching Service (CSS) adaptor solution developed by ElectraLink to deliver faster switching for energy market consumers. Built on the same infrastructure and integration points with market participants as the Data Transfer Service (DTS), CSSConnect is provided to the industry as part of the regulated Data Transfer Service Agreement (DTSA), facilitating near real-time communication between market participants and the Central Switching Service.
Why should you use CSSConnect?
No upfront costs, and a fixed monthly charge payable only from live operation
With CSSConnect, users will not incur any charges during its development or deployment phases. In addition, there will be no upfront fees or connection charges related to the adoption of this adapter solution. In terms of future operating costs, these will be added to customer’s DTS cost recovery charges for the fixed amount of £1603.66 per month, payable only from when the service enters into live operation, currently planned for April 2022.
