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.
