ECA Approval for Latest Socomec UPS Systems Used In Critical Power Applications
- Published: Wednesday, 26 June 2013 07:25
Socomec UPS systems: widest ever range approved by the Carbon Trust’s Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme (ECA) for taxable benefits on the purchase of new equipment.
Business Managers with responsibility for uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS) will immediately benefit from the ECA scheme if they choose a Socomec UPS system - designed and manufactured especially for use in critical power applications to ensure business continuity.
Nine additional Socomec UPS units - Socomec Delphys Green Power 2 500kVA and Masterys Green Power 2 15, 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, 100 and 120 kVA - received approval under the strict ECA criteria and were added to the Energy Technology Product List (ETPL) between March and May 2013.
This means that any new purchase of these ECA approved UPS units entitles users to apply to receive capital allowance benefits and to claim back costs against the purchase of the new equipment (in some cases project costs) from the Government under their energy-saving guidelines.
The latest approvals build on Socomec’s existing range of UPS products available on the ETPL, all qualifying for the same ECA scheme benefits. Socomec products were amongst the first UPS units to gain ECA approval in 2010 and include: Delphys Green Power 160, 200, 320 and 400 kVA, Masterys Green Power 40, 100 and 120 kVA and the Masterys Mission Critical 100 and 120 kVA.
UK businesses paying corporation (or income) tax can benefit from long and short term tax incentives, improved energy efficiency and reduced impact on the environment with the purchase of a new Socomec UPS unit.
