Allocation of payments made under article 7

12.—(1) The aggregate of the amounts received by the Authority under article 7 in respect of an obligation period (“the relevant obligation period”) (together with any interest thereon received by the Authority) is referred to in this article as “the buy-out fund”.

(2) The Authority shall pay out the buy-out fund, by the 1st December following the relevant obligation period in accordance with the system of allocation specified in paragraph (3).

(3) The buy-out fund relating to a relevant obligation period shall be divided amongst each of those designated electricity suppliers which, in respect of that period, has complied (in whole or in part) with its renewables obligation by producing to the Authority certificates pursuant to article 3 so that each such supplier receives that proportion of the buy-out fund which is equal to the proportion which the electricity covered by the certificates it has produced to the Authority pursuant to article 3 in respect of the relevant obligation period bears to the total of the electricity covered by all the certificates produced to the Authority pursuant to article 3 in respect of that period.

(4) For the purposes of this article, a “late payment” is an amount–

(a)which is received by the Authority in respect of an obligation period (“the obligation period in question”) on or after the specified day relating to that obligation period; and

(b)which, had it been so received before the specified day, would have been an amount received under article 7(1) in respect of the obligation period in question.

(5) The aggregate at any given time of the late payments received in respect of an obligation period (together with any interest received thereon by the Authority) is referred to in this article as the “late payment fund” for the obligation period in question.

(6) Not later than the 1st April immediately following the specified day for the obligation period in question, and at least once within every six month period thereafter, the Authority shall pay out the late payment fund for the obligation period in question in accordance with the system of allocation specified in paragraph (3), as if–

(a)the references in that paragraph to “the buy-out fund” were references to that late payment fund; and

(b)the references in that article to a “relevant obligation period” were references to the obligation period in question.
