What is the Carbon Tax?

As a gas customer in Ireland, Carbon Tax will appear on your gas bill.

The Government’s 2010 Finance Bill introduced a carbon tax which is applied to mineral oils, natural gas and solid fuels supplied for combustion in Ireland.

Since 1st May 2012, the tax for natural gas has been increased from €15 to €20 per tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted. All gas suppliers must apply the carbon tax to customer’s bills.

You’ll see the carbon tax rate on your bill as 0.370 cent/kWh. This is subject to a VAT rate of 13.5%.
