Investing in the latest technology may not only be more energy efficient for your business, it’s often more tax efficient too!

Despite its obvious benefits, energy-saving equipment can often carry a price premium when compared with less efficient alternatives.
Part of the Government’s programme to manage climate change, the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme for energy-saving technologies encourages businesses to invest in more efficient plant or machinery specified on the Energy Technology List (ETL), which is managed by the Carbon Trust.
By investing in technologies specified by the ETL, businesses can benefit from a 100% first year capital allowance against the taxable profits of the period of investment - providing a much welcomed cash flow boost.
The good news is that a range of Caterpillar flywheel UPS systems from Finning have now been added to the ETL.
Flywheel UPS systems offer an attractive alternative for operators looking to make long-term savings by reducing total cost of ownership. Since the Cat flywheel systems operate without batteries they have no need for climatic control of their environment; have a longer life and smaller footprint, meaning operators have more floor space available for future expansion. The power range of the products on the ETL is from 250kVA to 1500kVA with the capability of paralleling multiple systems together.
Installation is also quick and service downtime is reduced, with no batteries to install, maintain or dispose of.
So, in addition to supporting mission critical processes or protecting your operation from harmful power outages, our Cat UPS systems can now provide you with a healthy tax relief too.
