What is the PSO Levy?

The Public Service Obligation Levy (PSO) is mandated by the Government and approved by the European Commission to support the generation of electricity from sustainable, renewable and indigenous sources.

The levy is calculated and certified annually by the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) in accordance with relevant legislation and all energy suppliers are required to collect this levy from customers.

How am I billed for the PSO levy?

The amount of PSO you pay for your premises is based on your Maximum Import Capacity (MIC).

The current PSO levy rates from 1st of October 2016 to 30th September 2017 are:

  • PSO where MIC < 30kVA = €20.73 per month
  • PSO where MIC => 30kVA = €3.33 per kVA per month
