Late Payments to discharge the renewables obligation

41.—(1) Where a designated electricity supplier fails (in whole or in part) to discharge his renewables obligation for the relevant period before the 1st September in the settlement period, the Authority must notify him of the extent of his default as soon as is reasonably practicable on or after that date.

(2) The extent of the designated electricity supplier’s default is an amount equal to the amount calculated under Article 40(2) less any amount that the designated electricity supplier has actually paid to the Authority under Article 40.

(3) Interest is payable on that amount (or, where all or part of it is paid to the Authority before the end of the late payment period, such part of that amount as remains unpaid) during the late payment period.

(4) That interest shall be calculated on a daily basis at 5 percentage points above the base rate charged by the Bank of England on the first day of the late payment period.

(5) Any payment made by a designated electricity supplier towards discharging his default under paragraph (2) will be applied first to any interest that is payable under paragraph (3).

(6) If, by the end of the late payment period, the designated electricity supplier has paid to the Authority under this Article the amount referred to in paragraph (2) and all interest required to be paid on that amount under paragraph (3), he shall be treated as having discharged his renewables obligation for the relevant period.

(7) The Authority must not, during the late payment period, impose a penalty under Article 45 of the Energy Order on any supplier in respect of that supplier’s failure to discharge his renewables obligation in full before the 1st September in the settlement period.
