Scottish and Southern Energy has applied to Ofgem for accreditation under the Renewables Obligation (RO) scheme.

The energy company will need this to get Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs) for the electricity it generates at its two main onshore wind projects, Clyde and Griffin.

ROCs are granted by the energy watchdog as an incentive for energy companies to create renewable energy. Suppliers have to stump up cash if they don’t meet their renewable targets.
