CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme participants who purchased allowances in the April 2015 forecast sale will receive a refund at 50 pence per allowance.
The administrative error was announced on 1 February 2016. Regulations state that the price for the April 2015 forecast sales was £15.60, whereas the published price for allowances had been set at £16.10. The error is expected to have affected about a quarter of CRC participants.
DECC has written to all affected participants on 1 February 2016 via the payment provider SSCL, with details about the refund. Once bank details have been confirmed, DECC aim to pay the refund within 10 working days.
