WALTHAM, Massachusetts, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EuroSite Power™ Inc., (OTCQB: EUSP) an On-Site Utility™ solutions provider, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to healthcare, hospitality, housing and leisure centers in the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe is pleased to announce the receipt of $358,780 (£249,118) cash in Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) incentives from the UK government. The ECA program provides a tax incentive to businesses that invest in energy-saving equipment that meets published energy-saving criteria. Managed by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the ECA program is a key part of the UK government's efforts to combat climate-change.
"EuroSite Power's installations provide property managers a cost-free way to install energy saving power and heating equipment. The UK government's ECA program recognizes the efficient design of our CHP systems and rewards us for our ultra-efficient solutions," noted EuroSite Power's Managing Director Paul Hamblyn.
Under the program, UK businesses may write off the entire cost of qualifying green technology against taxable profits in the year of purchase. Although combined heat and power equipment (CHP) does not automatically qualify for an ECA benefit, owners and operators can submit details of the equipment design for assessment to obtain a certificate of energy efficiency. Once a certificate has been granted, the installation can qualify for an ECA incentive payment.
This ECA incentive payment is a result of installations completed in 2014 (and was discussed on the most recent quarterly earnings conference call); tax incentives for fiscal year 2015 have not yet been filed.
EuroSite Power sells the energy produced from an onsite energy system to an individual property as an alternative to the outright sale of energy equipment. On-Site Utility solution customers only pay for the energy produced by the system and receive a guaranteed discount rate on the price of the energy. All system capital, installation, operating expenses and support are paid by EuroSite Power.
