ROC Energy understands that solar installations are developed in order to produce renewable energy and that in doing so, they become eligible for tariffs from Ofgem. Depending on the output size of the installation, two different schemes are currently applicable.

The Feed in Tariff (FiTs) scheme was introduced in April 2010 to encourage solar generation under 5MW. The FiTs are split into rates depending on the size of installation from systems up to 50KW which are accredited under the Microgeneration Certificate Scheme (MCS) or over 50KW but less that 5MW under the ROO-FiT scheme from Ofgem.

The second method is by the Renewable Obligations Certificates (ROCs). This system requires electricity suppliers such as Npower and Eon to source a specified and annually increasing proportion of electricity from renewable energy sources or incur fines. Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) are issued by Ofgem, the energy industry’s regulator, to accredited generators of eligible renewable energy. ROC Energy is a fully accredited generator.

Generators sell their ROCs to suppliers or traders in return for a premium over and above the wholesale electricity price, for electricity generated. Suppliers present the ROCs to Ofgem to demonstrate their compliance with the obligation and to avoid paying a penalty.
