Climate Change Levy


From 1st April 2013, all taxable fossil fuel commodities will incur an increase to the Climate Change Levy (CCL) for every kilo-watt-hour (kWh) delivered to site. 

The Levy is only applied to those fuels that are generated or produced from fossil fuel sources, whilst exemption from the Levy exists where the fuel is procured from Renewable sources.


The new rates for 2013/14 will be:


Electricity 0.524p/kWh


Gas 0.182p/kWh


There is a reduced rate in CCL liability for CCA holders that will now be 10% of main rate for electricity and 35% of main gas rate.  This means that the CCA holder will receive 90% and 65% exemption for electricity and gas, respectively, from CCL and this supported in the PP11 certificate.
