Cenergise’s price of electricity comprises of an Energy Rate and a Non-Energy Rate. Separately on your bill, there is the PSO levy, Electricity Tax and VAT.

The Non-Energy Rate is made up of regulated pass-through charges that suppliers must pay to ESB Networks, EirGrid and SEMO. They are updated annually and approved by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU). This means that the Non-Energy is subject to change when pass-through charges change.

For more information, please visit the CRU website.
