Renewable Obligation Certificates

Commonly know as ROCs, these certificates are used to support larger scale renewable energy projects including on-shore wind, off-shore wind and large ground mounted solar PV arrays. Although the FiT can be used to fund PV projects up to 5MW, because of the lower rates at the larger bands it may make financial sense to opt for ROCs rather than FiTs for projects as small as 250kW. RS Renewables can work with you to build a financial model using RETScreen to compare the outcomes of various scenarios.
