Interesting that they mention penalties: "The improper creation of certificates is now a civil penalty provision (s 24A) as well as a criminal penalty provision" - would that indicate that there have been numerous attempts of people trying to rort the system and illegally create certificates from non-existent systems? I wonder if that includes systems installed completely in the shade or on south-facing roofs, claiming to create REC's which are never likely to "contribute" to the environment? It's starting to sound like the insulation scheme again, but at least they're being proactive about it this time...
