You can find the consultation here.

The Public Service Obligation (PSO) is a charge distributed across all final electricity customers in Ireland and is used to fund Irish Government schemes to support the construction and operation of sources of renewable electricity

The level of the charge is decided by the size of each customer group and if they are a business or a domestic customer. The PSO supports the Government Renewable Energy Feed-In Tariff (REFIT) and the Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS), both of which support renewable electricity generation projects.

Government policy determines the amount of subsidy provided to generators supported under the PSO. The CRU’s primary role is the calculation of the PSO Levy or PSO Payment annually and to help ensure appropriate and efficient administration of the scheme.

The CRU has today published a consultation on a Proposed Decision which sets out the proposed PSO Levy to apply to all electricity customers from 1 October 2024 to 30 September 2025. It is important to note that the CRU will publish the final PSO Levy for 2024/25 by the statutory deadline of 1 August 2024.

Responses to the consultation should be submitted via the CRU consultation portal by 28 June 2024.

Please note your response will be publicly available for viewing on the portal at the end of the consultation. If you require your response to remain confidential, please clearly state this in your response.
