The switch to purchasing Climate Change Levy exempt renewable energy has resulted in a 2.14 per cent. (average) increase in cost.

In view of the considerable contribution to the ENV (G) target and associated CO2 savings, Cabinet Office agreed to pay the additional cost to secure a 12 month contract for the supply of electricity from entirely renewable sources to three buildings on its central London estate. This contract came into effect on 1 October 2002.
