The CRU has today, 01 August 2019, published an Information Paper on the Electricity Transmission Network Allowed Revenues for 2020 and the associated Demand Transmission Use of System (D-TUoS) tariffs for the 2019/2020 tariff year.
This information paper sets out the update to the Allowed Revenues that the transmission network companies, EirGrid (TSO) and ESB Networks (TAO), may recover during the calendar year 2020. These revenues are required for the efficient operation and maintenance of the electricity transmission system to ensure that the network delivers a reliable supply for the consumers.
Furthermore, the paper sets out the CRU’s decision on the associated Demand Transmission Use of System (TUoS) tariffs that will apply to demand customers from 01 October 2019 to 30 September 2020
If no other elements of the bill changed, the combined transmission and distribution tariff adjustments will result in the average residential customer’s annual bill rising by €1.26 in October 2019. However, customer’s annual bills depend, on other factors, such as wholesale market costs (which are in turn driven by factors such as international commodity prices), capacity market costs and other system costs.
