Generators

The climate change levy (CCL) exemption scheme for renewables is now closed.
 
March 2013 was the last month of generation for which a CHPQA accredited station was eligible to receive CHP Levy Exemption Certificates (LECs), and July 2015 was the last month of generation eligible for Renewable LECs. If you commissioned on or after these dates you should not apply. Please see our CCL exemption removed FAQs for more details.

Claiming for generation before August 2015

Stations able to claim LECs before the August 2015 closure dates must be accredited. If you wish to claim LECs for generation before 1 August 2015 please contact our CCL and REGO team on 020 7901 7310 (Option 3) or renewable@ofgem.gov.uk.
