The Renewable Obligation (Scotland) Amendment Order 2018
Commencement: 20th November 2018
Amends: The Renewables Obligation (Scotland) Order 2009
This Regulation revokes Article 17(4) in order to remove a restriction on the amount of electricity which can be produced by hydro generating stations without affecting eligibility for Scottish Renewable Obligation Certificates.
Article 17(4) prevented Scottish Renewable Obligation Certificates (SROCs) from being issued to accredited hydro-stations with a Declared Net Capacity (DNC) of over 20 megawatts (large hydro-generating stations). This Article therefore limited the ability of accredited hydro-stations to deploy excluded capacity where it takes the DNC above 20MW.
