Climate Change Levy discount

Home \ Environment & Buildings \ Energy use on pig farms \ Climate Change Levy discount

Producers within the pig, poultry or horticulture sectors, may be eligible for a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL) under DECC’s Climate Change Agreement for your sector.

The discount is 90% for electricity and 65% for natural gas, LPG and coal. These levels have applied since 1st April 2013. There are also exemptions from the CCL for electricity generated from some renewables such as solar power and wind power.

The CCL is added to energy bills before VAT and, although there is no legal requirement to itemise it, it often appears as a separate item on bills.

There is more information on the Farm Energy Centre website.
