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.

From 1st May 2022, the tax for natural gas is €41 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 0.877 cent/kWh (0.956 cent/kWh incl. VAT)

This is subject to a VAT rate of 9%.
