        ccl increase

        Climate Change Levy (CCL) set to increase

        Climate Change Levy (CCL) set to increase in April 2019

        What is CCL?
        Climate change levy is a Government originated charge that is paid to HM Revenue & Customs. It is a tax on energy to increase energy efficiency and to reduce carbon emissions across business and public sector organisations.

        Why are these changes taking place?
        The government is increasing this environmental tax to recover the revenue for abolishing the antiquated carbon reduction commitment (CRC), but also to strengthen the incentive for businesses and public sector organisations to reduce the amount of energy they are consuming.

        An example of the CCL main rate changes includes a staggering 45% increase for Electricity (£ per kilowatt hour) from 0.00583 to 0.00847, and a 66% increase for Natural Gas (£ per KWh) from 0.00203 to 0.00339. For full details on the CCL rates click here.

        How to avoid the CCL increase.
        A fantastic way to avoid the increase in energy prices is to reduce your business’ energy consumption as Climate Change Levy is charged in pence per unit (kWh). We can make simple changes to the way we consume energy by changing behaviours such as, turning off computers when we leave our desks etc. or by switching to low cost, energy efficient technologies such as LED lighting which boasts approx. 80% savings against traditional lighting methods.

        Another fantastic way to reduce energy consumption is to introduce localised energy generation units.

        Four star hotel joins our Energy Revolution

        Four star hotel joins The Energy Revolution

        A contemporary boutique Hotel & Spa in the south-west has become one of the first organisations to join our energy revolution and take control of their energy consumption through the use of on-site generation.

        On-site generation otherwise known as co-generation is the process of generating power locally and utilising the waste heat produced by the generation process.

        Generating power on-site is not only cheaper than buying power from the grid, but it is more efficient as well, as there are no transmission losses due to the transportation of energy from a remote power station to the site drawing power.

        Efficiency
        The hotel will now utilise 89% of the power that is generated to supply the hotel, compared with the previous traditional supply from the grid which can see up to 62% losses in transit, therefore only 38% efficient.

        This increased efficiency significantly reduces the carbon footprint for the hotel and reduces CO2 by an estimated 184 tonnes per year. Additionally, the on-site generation provides their business model with more resilience from energy market fluctuations and ever-increasing third party costs.

        GET Solutions provide these projects on a cost-neutral basis with the client achieving annual returns, which makes the project not only a sound business decision but also the ethical way to source your energy supply.
