    Higher Electric Bills As PSO Levy Increases

    The Commission for Energy Regulation has recently announced that the Public Service Obligation (PSO) Levy will increase from 1st October 2016.

    The PSO Levy is a government subsidy that is charged to all electricity customers and supports renewable energy generation. It is also used to secure the Irish electricity supply.

    The CER announced that the PSO Levy is to increase by just over 20% from €68.20 to €82.04. The increase, which will take effect from 1st October, will add almost €14 per year to household electricity bills when VAT is included.

    The PSO Levy is a charge that all domestic and commercial electricity customers pay. The proceeds raised go to a variety of schemes related to renewable energy generation, ensuring that our electricity supply is secure, and subsidising the use of indigenous fuels like peat to generate electricity.

    The CER has said that from 1st October 2016 to 30th September 2017, €400.9 million will be needed for the PSO Levy. This is an increase of €75.6 million over the current period.
