Piller UK’s UPS systems accredited to Government's “green” ECA scheme
Several of Piller’s UNIBLOCK UBT systems have just been added to the exclusive list of products on the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government’s Department of the Environment and Climate Change and HM Revenue and Customs. The ECA scheme is a key part of the UK Government’s programme to manage climate change and it provides businesses with enhanced tax relief for investments in equipment that meets published energy-saving criteria. The ECA scheme is devised to indentify and provide a financial incentive for using the ‘best of breed’ in each of the product classes.
Inclusion on the ECA list means that Piller’s UPS system customers buying the listed UNIBLOCK UBT systems can claim back 100% of the capital allowances for their UPS package in the first year of purchase. This gives Piller’s customers a real cash benefit, as ordinarily they would only be able to claim back the allowances over five years rather than one year.
Piller’s UNIBLOCK UBT systems have very high operating efficiencies compared with many of its competitors’ technologies, a prime factor towards ensuring their addition to the ECA list of products.
