Power Surcharges

Learn more about the power and carbon dioxide surcharges here

Why?

As a region we're currently experiencing an energy crisis with unprecedented high global gas and energy prices.

What is the power surcharge?

You'll be seeing a temporary power surcharge on your invoices which will be removed once energy prices return to base levels.

What will I pay?

The surcharge will track power prices each month. It will change on a monthly basis depending on the gap between that months average energy price and the base energy price. We convert this value per KG or per cylinder/pack, dependant upon the products you take. This surcharge applies to all customers and it will be listed as a separate line item on your invoice titled Power Surcharge.

We will publish this here every month, so please feel free to bookmark this link and check for an update.
