Just when they shut the peat generating stations. Wasn’t that why the PSO levy was brought in?
Isnt it just?
You keeping up?
Angry callers to Liveline break the news that the PSO levy has jumped, along with unit prices
The levy for last year was €38.68 a year including VAT, but will rise to €88.80 a year including VAT for the 2020/21 period. This is the second highest the levy has ever been since it was introduced in 2010.
As well as an increase in the PSO levy, customers of Electric Ireland, the country’s biggest electricity supplier, will also have to contend with a 3.4% increase in the unit price of their electricity, which will add around €35 a year to the average annual bill. This comes into effect on the same day as the PSO levy increase.
The regulator had no regard for the pandemic, people on PUP and the businesses which are locked down.
What happens when you let Green ideology take over energy production…
When the wind is not blowing, renewable generation of electricity is at a low output and if sufficient support is not available from the UK across the inter-connectors, Ireland’s national grid is vulnerable.
Interesting dashboard - anything for the sodden isle?
7% of the source of the electricity is withdrawn, and the system operating close to generation capacity.
Science is great isn’t it.
Seems they have enough stock til 2024. No more peak briquettes after that
Recently on a presentation for waste to energy investment, all overseas, planning/NIMBY’ism/snouts in the trough really seem to kill/massively delay anything similar here, whilst the UK Nordic countries steam ahead.
Seems to solve a lot of issues per MW -v- anything else, pollution, landfill, energy all impacted by these plants.
Obviously it was a sales presentation and ultimately all that matters is the yield for client at the end of the day, but it definitely seems criminally underexploited here.
