Reduced levy on electricity bills

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.
