A SCOTS energy firm is to pay back cash after administrative errors led to it receiving more than £4 million more than it was entitled to under a renewable energy scheme. Perth-based energy giant SSE is to pay out upwards of £705,000 after the administrative mistakes meant it had overinflated its renewable energy payments status. The Scottish Hydro Electric owner will pay the cash to the feed-in tariffs levelisation fund and in redress after overstating to Ofgem the costs it incurred through making payments to eligible low carbon generators. As a result of the error, the supplier received £4.07m more than it was entitled to in payments from the annual fund.
