This Order amends the Feed-in Tariffs (Specified Maximum Capacity and Functions) Order 2010 (S.I. 2010/678) (“the 2010 Order”).
The 2010 Order gives functions to the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority in connection with the administration of the feed-in tariffs scheme for small-scale low carbon electricity generation. Article 2 amends article 5A of the 2010 Order (as inserted by S.I. 2011/1181 and previously amended by S.I. 2011/1655) to extend the period of application of a temporary provision enabling hydro generating stations with a declared net capacity of 50 kilowatts or less to be accredited for feed-in tariffs where, if such stations had a declared net capacity exceeding 50 kilowatts, they would meet the requirements for accreditation under the Renewables Obligation. As amended, the provision now applies to eligible hydro generating installations commissioned on or before 30th September 2012.
An impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
