All energy suppliers are required to contribute to certain Government Initiatives designed to help reduce their impact on the environment. These include environmental programmes that reduce carbon emissions, such as Renewables Obligation.
Climate Change Levy (CCL)
CCL is a Government-imposed tax to encourage reduction in gas emissions and greater efficiency of energy used for business. The tax is applied to your usage, and is applied only when electricity consumption exceeds 33 kWh per day during a bill period or 145kWh for gas. The CCL charge will be itemised on your bill. If your usage is at or below 33kWh per day for electricity or 145kWh per day for gas CCL will not be charged.
