Climate Change Agreement Re-opens

The climate change agreement scheme has re-opened to new entrants allowing businesses with qualifying sites and processes to receive a significant reduction on climate change levy charges.

What is the Climate Change Levy?

The Climate Change Levy is a tax on the amount of energy a business consumes, the tax is usually at the bottom of an invoice, split out separately to other charges making it simple to calculate your CCL cost.

Businesses with certain qualifying processes are entitled to up to a 92% discount on electricity CCL charges and an 88% discount on gas CCL charges which for large businesses is a significant saving on invoices.  The below table summarises typical annual and three-year savings based on different energy consumptions.
