Northern Ireland Renewable Obligations cost (ROCs) adjustment and Climate Levy Change (CCL)

ROCs changes

From 1st April 2018, the Northern Ireland Renewables Obligation cost will increase from 16.7% to 18.5% ROCs per MWh of electricity supplied. The buy-out price will also increase for each ROC from £45.58 to £47.22.

These changes equate to an increase of 0.11p/kWh (£0.0011 per kWh).

SSE Airtricity will apply the increased pass-through costs to your consumption from 1 April 2018. Further details on this change can be found in this link.

Climate Levy Change 

From 1 April 2018, the Climate Change levy will increase from 0.568p to 0.583p (£0.00568 to £0.00583) per kWh

These changes equate to an increase of 0.015p/kWh (£0.00015 per kWh)

SSE Airtricity will apply the new CCL rate to your invoices from 1 April 2018. Further details on this change can be found in this link.

SSE Airtricity expects the next change in pass-through costs to be from 1st October 2018, which will arise from the annual review of inter alia transportation and distribution use of system charges, Single Electricity Market (“SEM”) costs and the Public Service Obligation (“PSO”) levy.
