Changes to our rates

After several months of rising costs in the wholesale energy market, we are no longer able to absorb the increased costs for gas and electricity, and as a result our rates will be increasing in November 2021.

If you have a quarterly hour (QH) electricity meter the increase will be effective from 1st November 2021.

For electricity and gas customers with a non-quarterly hour meter (NQH) the increase will be effective from 8th November 2021.

We have a range of great value fully fixed and fixed energy contracts available - if you are interested, please fill in Our Get Quote form or call us on 01 611 01 33.

The Public Service Obligation (PSO)

The Public Service Obligation (PSO) levy is set by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) and is designed to support the national policy objectives of security of energy supply, the use of indigenous fuels (e.g. peat) and the use of renewable energy sources in electricity generation.

The PSO levy is charged to all electricity customers, regardless of who supplies their electricity.

From 1 October 2021, the PSO levy will be decreasing.
