Small Generators Alert!
Submitted: 22 March 2004
The Renewables Order has been amended to enable smaller generators, whose output is on average less than 500 kWh per month to benefit for ROCs.

Ofgem is working on revising its procedures to implement this change and hopes to issue these in early May. These will include specific procedures for small generators as defined.

Ofgem also intends to hold a workshop for generators in late April to explain these and to take on board comments as appropriate.

However, in the meantime, small generators who wish to apply will need to take a meter reading from their meter, recording renewable generation on 1 April 2004 as that will form their starting reading.

Given that such small generators are not already accredited, it is likely to be difficult to reach them and let them know this.

The RPA is doing all it can to let such generators know. Please pass on this message to anyone you know to whom it applies.
