(2) The Authority shall not issue a NIROC in respect of any electricity generated by a particular generating station in a particular month if the Great Britain Authority has previously issued a certificate under section 32B of the Electricity Act in respect of any such electricity and whether or not any such certificate previously issued has been revoked.
