Opt-In Application - 2017
The Specified Gas Emitters Regulation (SGER) has recently been amended to allow certain facilities to opt into the regulation that were not previously subject to the SGER. Opting into SGER for some facilities would address situations
where they are competing directly with Large Final Emitters that are regulated under SGER. If opted-in, these facilities would be able to apply for and receive an exemption from the carbon levy.
