What is the PSO levy?

The Public Service Obligation (PSO) Levy is a charge relating to the costs of purchasing peat generated electricity and the output of renewable, sustainable or alternative forms of energy purchased under various Government schemes. All electricity suppliers are obliged by government to apply these charges in the interests of security of supply and environmental protection.

It’s set by the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER). The Public Service Obligation (PSO) Levy for domestic electricity has been set at €6.70(including VAT) / €5.90(excluding VAT) per month from 1st October 2016.
