Scottish electricity customers will see reductions in their electricity bills from April as the cost of Scotland's program of renewables support drops to zero. During financial year 1999/2000, the Fossil Fuel Levy on all electricity bills will be reduced from its already low level of 0.8% because renewable energy projects under the Scottish Renewables Obligation-paid for through the levy-have not come on line as quickly as expected. Former electricity regulator Stephen Littlechild expects the existing levy surplus will allow the levy rate for 2000/2001 to be held below the level which had been previously forecast.
