  Scenario Scenario’s outcome  

 

1. An applicant has submitted stage 2 information and been issued with a Tariff Guarantee Notice (TGN) before 29 June 2020.

They will receive the tariff as of the date they submitted stage 1.

They will be sent a notice confirming the new deadline of 31 March 2022.  

They will be able to commission and submit properly made stage 3 information at any point up until 31    March 2022.

If they commission after 31 March 2021 their payment period will end 31 March 2041.

 
  2. An applicant has submitted stage 2 information and been issued with a TGN. However, due to Covid-19 related delays, the commissioning deadline has passed at the coming into force date of the regulations.

They will receive the tariff as of the date they submitted stage 1.

They will be sent a notice confirming the new deadline of 31 March 2022.  

They will be able to commission and submit properly made stage 3 information at any point up until 31      March 2022.

  3. An applicant has submitted properly made stage 1 information prior to 29 June 2020, but they have not submitted stage 2 information and received a TGN. Assuming their application is successful, the TGN, when issued, will be as follows.

They will be able to commission and submit properly made stage 3 information at any point up until 31 March 2022.

  4. An applicant submits properly made stage 1 information on or after the 29 June 2020, but before the coming into force date of these regulations.

This outcome will apply regardless of whether stage 2 information is submitted and a TGN is issued prior to the coming into force date of these regulations).  If their application is successful:

They will receive the tariff as of the date they submitted stage 1.

As per current scheme rules, Stage 2 information must be submitted no later than 3 weeks after the date that the Provisional TGN is issued.

They will not receive an extended commissioning deadline. Instead, the current scheme deadlines will apply. As such they must commission either by 31 January or 183-days after the commissioning date they submit to the Authority.

They will have the option to apply for TG3 if they wish to benefit from the extended commissioning deadlines, however, this is a commercial decision and down to the discretion of the applicant.

 

  5. If an applicant successfully submits stage 1 on or after the coming into force date of these regulations.

They will be accredited under TG3.

They will receive the tariff as of the date they submitted stage 1.
