Step 6Accreditation decision
After submitting your application form, you will be prompted to pay the accreditation application fee for your power station. You must have the appropriate REC Registry user permissions to enable the payment of an invoice.
Accreditation applications fees are set in Regulation 28 of the
Renewable Energy (Electricity) Regulations 2001 (REE Regulations). Fees vary depending on the installed capacity of the power station and its renewable power baseline. The fee is paid via the REC Registry.
An application for accreditation (containing all required information and supporting documentation) is considered ‘properly made’ when the accreditation fee has been paid.
The agency must make a final decision to approve or refuse a properly made accreditation application within six weeks unless a longer period is agreed to.
