e-ROC FAQs
  1. How can I sell my ROCs in the e-ROC auction? The first step is to enter into the Agency Agreement and transfer the ROCs to the Ofgem account.
  2. I’m a new user, how long will it take to register for an auction? You can send signed Acceptance Forms at any time but no later than five days before the date of the auction. This will allow details of your ROCs to be shown on the auction site two days before the auction starts.
  3. How will I get paid for the ROCs sold at auction? Following the auction and after payment has been received from the successful bidders, we will ask you to invoice us. We will then make payment to you, less our fees. Payment is usually made within 8 days of the auction.
  4. How much will it cost me to sell my ROCs through the e-ROC auction? The charge is 50p + VAT per ROC, subject to a minimum fee of £50 + VAT.
  5. Can I specify a reserve price for my ROCs? Yes. You can agree a reserve price for the ROCs you place in our auction.
  6. How many ROCs are in a lot? There is no set size - lots can vary from a few hundred to a few thousand.
  7. Why are suppliers willing to buy lots in the auction at more than the ‘buy out’ price published by Ofgem? By submitting ROCs to Ofgem they avoid having to pay the ‘buy-out’ price and benefit from a payment from the ‘buy-out fund’.
  8. How can I be sure I’ll get the best price for my ROCs? There are no guarantees but take a look at our record-to-date to compare the prices you’ve been getting with what you could have sold your ROCs for. We think you’ll be impressed by our results.
  9. Do I have to sell my electricity to e-POWER in order to sell my ROCs via e-ROC? There is no obligation to sell your electricity through us, although if you wish to do so, you need our e-POWER auction (e-ROC is for ROCs alone).
  10. Can I sell co-fired ROCs through e-ROC online auctions? Yes. We have sold co-fired ROCs alongside ordinary ROCs in the e-ROC online auctions.

e-ROC and e-POWER are trading names of NFPAS Limited, a subsidiary of Non-Fossil Purchasing Agency Limited.
