Explanatory Note

(This note does not form part of the Order)

This Order amends the Electricity from Non-Fossil Fuel Sources (Scotland) Saving Arrangements Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/3269).

Article 2 amends the Order to make it a requirement that the supply successor company puts arrangements in place to sell on the open market benefits attaching to any electricity received by him under the SRO Orders.
