Climate change levy
The reduced rate of climate change levy for facilities in energy intensive sectors, currently 20%, will be increased to 35% from 1 April 2011.
Claimants will be required to give their energy suppliers fresh certificates confirming their new relief entitlement - for existing claimants, this will be by the completion of their first annual review after 1 April 2011.
Green Boiler Incentive Scheme
The Pre-Budget Report announces a £400 incentive to help up to 125,000 households upgrade old inefficient boilers to the latest energy efficient models (available to those who buy a new efficient boiler or renewable heat unit to replace a working G rated boiler).
