With all the talk of Ireland failing to reach its expected reduced carbon emission targets, it seems possible that the current carbon tax rate will increase.
For homeowners – whose primary home heating solution is gas – this means they’ll likely see further increases to their home heating energy bill.
Energy companies like Bord Gáis Energy, Electric Ireland and Energia are already charging their clients a carbon tax, which works out at around 0.42 cents -- including VAT -- on every kWh of gas used.
With carbon emissions again at the top of the Government’s agenda, this per kWh rate may be significantly increased.
With the threat of a tax increase hoovering in the air, now is the perfect time to consider greener energy alternatives. If you are thinking about solar, you should really be considering thermodynamic solar panels.
