19(1)A supply of electricity is exempt from the levy if—U.K.

(b)the supply is made under a contract that contains a renewable source declaration given by the supplier,

(c)prescribed conditions are fulfilled, F1...

(d)the supplier, and each other person (if any) who is a generator of any renewable source electricity allocated by the supplier to supplies under the contract, has in a written notice given to the Commissioners agreed that he will fulfil those conditions so far as they may apply to him [F2, and

(e)the electricity is actually supplied before 1 April 2018.]

(2)In this paragraph “renewable source declaration” means a declaration that, in each averaging period, the amount of electricity supplied by exempt renewable supplies made by the supplier in the period will not exceed the difference between—

(a)the total amount of renewable source electricity that during that period is either acquired or generated by the supplier, and

(b)so much of that total amount as is allocated by the supplier otherwise than to exempt renewable supplies made by him in the period.

In this sub-paragraph “averaging period” has the same meaning as in paragraph 20 and “exempt renewable supplies” means supplies made on the basis that they are exempt under this paragraph.

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph and paragraph 20, electricity is “renewable source electricity” if—

[F3(za)it is generated before 1 August 2015,]

(a)it is generated in a prescribed manner, and

(b)prescribed conditions are fulfilled.

A manner of generating electricity may be prescribed by reference to the means by which the electricity is generated or the materials from which it is generated (or both).

(4)In prescribing a manner of generating electricity under sub-paragraph (3), the Commissioners must have regard to the object of securing that exemption under this paragraph is only available for supplies of electricity that has a renewable source.

F4(4A). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

(5)The conditions that may be prescribed under sub-paragraph (1)(c) include, in particular, conditions in connection with—

(a)the giving of effect to renewable source declarations;

(b)the supply of information;

(c)the inspection of records and, for that purpose, the production of records in legible form and entry into premises;

(d)monitoring by the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority, or the Director General of Electricity Supply for Northern Ireland, of the application of provisions of, or made under, this paragraph;

(e)the doing of things to or by a person authorised by the Authority or the Director General (as well as to or by the Authority or the Director General);

(f)things being done at times or in ways specified by the Authority, the Director General or such an authorised person.

(6)A condition prescribed under sub-paragraph (1)(c) may be one that is required to be fulfilled throughout a period, including a period ending after the time when a supply whose exemption turns on the fulfilment of the condition is treated as being made.

(7)The conditions that may be prescribed under sub-paragraph (3)(b) include, in particular, conditions in connection with—

(a)the generation of the electricity;

(b)the materials from which the electricity is generated;

(c)any of the matters mentioned in paragraphs (b) to (f) of sub-paragraph (5).

(8)Each of—

(a)the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority, and

(b)the Director General of Electricity Supply for Northern Ireland,

shall supply the Commissioners with such information (whether or not obtained under this paragraph), and otherwise give the Commissioners such co-operation, as the Commissioners may require in connection with the application (whether generally or in relation to any particular case) of any relevant provisions.

(9)In sub-paragraph (8) “relevant provisions” means provisions of or made under—

(a)this paragraph or paragraph 20, or

(b)paragraph 23(3) so far as relating to electricity, or paragraph 23(4).

(10)None of—
