An organisation must participate in the CRC if it was supplied with over 6,000 MWh of electricity through Settled HHMs during the Qualification Year for the relevant Phase.
Depending on the price you pay for your electricity, the Qualifying Amount equates roughly to an electricity bill of around £500,000 or more per year.
- If an organisation is identified as a CRC Participant in the Scheme at the beginning of a Phase, it will remain in the scheme for the duration of that Phase even if it falls below the 6,000 MWh inclusion threshold for any particular year. The organisation will then be reassessed for eligibility at the start of the next Phase;
- Similarly, if an organisation is not eligible at the start of the Phase, changes which bring its emissions above the threshold will only lead to inclusion of its emissions at the start of the next Phase.
