Ofgem has issued three suppliers with final orders, meaning they are to pay £15 million in outstanding payments in order to fall in line with the Renewables Obligation scheme and the Feed-in Tariff levelisation payments.
The three suppliers, Nabuh Energy Limited, Robin Hood Energy Limited and Symbio Energy Limited, have until 31st October the make their payments.
All three suppliers either failed to present the required number of Renewables Obligation Certificates or did not pay into the buy-out fund by the set deadlines of 31st August and 1st September.
The supplier who failed to pay its Feed-in Tariff levelisation payment was Robin Hood Energy.
Four other final orders were issued earlier this month to Tonik Energy, Co-operative Energy, Flow Energy and MA Energy for similar breeches. Tonik Energy has since ceased trading, while MA Energy has paid in full, leaving Co-operative Energy and Flow Energy yet to pay, but have given Ofgem the assurances they will pay before the deadline is up.
Ofgem is prepared to take action against any supplier who fails to meet the second deadline, which could result in licenses being revoked.
Cathryn Scott, Ofgem’s Director of Enforcement and Emerging Issues, said:
“The Renewables Obligation and Feed-in Tariff schemes provide vital support to renewable electricity generators and play an important role in Great Britain’s journey to a greener, fairer, energy system."
“This enforcement action shows that we will take robust action if suppliers undermine such schemes by failing to meet their obligations, which could lead to them having their licence revoked.”
