Eon has communicated that they will pass on Renewable Obligations (RO) and Contract for Difference (CfD) charges no longer paid by Energy Intensive Industries (EII) to all non EII customers.
The new legislation came into force in November 17 for CfD and April 18 for RO.
In line with their T&C’s they are allowed to pass on these costs to their non-EII customers once the exact figures are known. While other suppliers incorporated the expected cost in their quotes eon choose to give their customers a costly surprise.
I also fail to understand the logic as to why the government places the burden of the EII discounts on to other energy customers rather than the general tax payers.
