Ofgem has fined energy supplier Npower £125,000 for wrongly reporting data in 2010 to 2012 related to two government renewable energy support schemes.
Under the government’s Renewables Obligation (RO) scheme, energy companies have to source a proportion of electricity from renewable energy sources.
Under a separate scheme called the Feed in Tariffs, energy companies have to provide an incentive to small-scale renewable energy generators in the form of payments.
Ofgem administers both schemes on behalf of the government and found that Npower used incorrect information to calculate the amount of electricity supplied to its customers.
Npower under-reported these amounts by 0.08 percent in 2010 to 2011 and by 0.28 percent in 2011 to 2012, Ofgem said.
