Selling your Energy
SELLING YOUR ENERGY AND CLAIMING ROCs
Many people, when asked, would love to have some kind of alternative energy generation system in their house. Try it, ask people. I've talked to loads of people about this issue and apart from the old misconceptions such as " I can't have a solar power system... I need the lights on when its dark", just about everyone I've talked to thinks it's really cool and given the right conditions and incentives would like to generate their own power.
If you agree with the principles of alternative energy generation, from an ethical or any other standpoint, then really you've got to seriously look at generating your own or buying from a company that sources its power from renewable and alternative means.
Follow this link to information produced by outlining the pollution rating of the major power companies.
Outlined below are the most popular companies that have Green Energy Tariffs. Most of the big power generators now have a Green Energy Product and switching to a green tariff can be an easy process. However, it may be worth asking where their electricity is generated and what percentage of renewable energy does the company generate at present. I'll try to do some more research on this... In the meantime it may be worthwhile checking out this ethiscore.org report on Green Energy Suppliers.
In the meantime change to a Green Energy supplier. Ok, it may be a bit of hassle, but once its done you can rest assured that the power coming to your home is being generated from renewable sources; not nuclear or fossil fuel. Once you've done this tell your friends... with momentum this could bring about a huge change and make the generators and government take notice.
I hope this information below is useful to people who wish to sell their excess electricity and to people who wish to switch to a renewable energy tariff. .
Claiming ROC Entitlement
At present a domestic micro generation electricity generator can claim ROCs. This link to Ofgem will take you to the necessary form.
Ofgem have now relaxed their rules for accreditation and now this can be done through the electricity supplier who will act as agents. Scottish and Southern will now pay us 4.6p per kwh for our ROC entitlement. This should work out to be around £140 per year that we will receive for generating around 3000 kwh. We will also receive the export tariff which is the same as the import tariff.
At last this system is becoming easier and less onerous for the householder to receive their ROC entitlement. Well done Scottish and Southern.

We have now reached the end of
our trial period for Going Solar and are now awaiting system changes to
enable automised billing before we can accept further customers onto the
scheme. As such, customers wishing to register
When they begin their 'Going Solar' programme again the details may change however their previous deal was...If you are in their area they buy your excess electricity for the same amount as you would buy from them. This is organised through net metering. There is an initial cost of £30 for the meter. Elsewhere they give you 5 pence per kilowatt hour for energy generated, (whether you use it or not) however they hope to provide their full net metering service throughout the country this year.
RSPB do not claim the ROC entitlement, this leaves the energy generator (you) free to claim the ROCs for the energy you are generating.

At present pay 5 pence per kilowatt hour for your generated energy (whether you use it or not)Juice is generated from a number of renewable energy sources, primarily at North Hoyle Offshore Wind Farm. As a Juice customer, npower matches every unit of normal electricity that you use and feeds the same amount, generated from renewable sources, into the electricity network. Developed in partnership with Greenpeace.
npower do not claim the ROC entitlement, this leaves the energy generator (you) free to claim the ROCs for the energy you are generating.
At present they buy generated electricity at 9 pence per kilowatt hour for all electricity generated, whether you use it or not!They are the only company that buys their electricity solely from renewable sources.
However Good Energy claim the ROC from your generated energy. This means that you can't, it forms part of their contract that you sign your ROC entitlement over to them.
