From 1st October 2019 , the CRU (Commission for Regulation of Utilities)  has decided that the PSO Levy will be decreased from €3.48 to €2.84 (ex. VAT) per month. You will see the PSO Levy on your electricity bill as €5.68 (€2.84 x 2 on a typical 2-monthly bill). .

This is the second year in a row that the PSO levy has decreased and it is now at its lowest level since 2013.
Over a full year , the decrease means customers will see the charge decrease from €47.40 to €38.69 a year, a small saving of €8.71.

This PSO is imposed by the Government on all electricity customers regardless of their supplier and is shown as a separate item on electricity bills. It is designed to recover the additional costs associated with electricity from specified sources of generation, including sustainable, renewable and indigenous sources.
