The removal of CCL exemption for renewable power will have no impact on our commitment to secure as much of our power as possible from renewable electricity sources.

Generators who are also accredited under the Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) scheme should continue to submit monthly output data claims on the Renewables and CHP Register. The REGOs should continue to be transferred to Opus Energy.
