They have done it again…
The latest Carbon Tax increase on solid fuels effective from May 1st will see the price of solid fuels rise again. Another blow for the people of Ireland. With carbon tax and vat this equates to approx. €6.70 on a 40kg bag of coal.
This season has seen a flood of smoky coal, from outside this jurisdiction, putting legitimate Fuel Merchants under serious commercial pressure and causing fuel poverty throughout the country.
SFMI are calling for a halt to carbon tax increases until proper enforcement is put in place to safeguard the industry and peoples’ ability to keep themselves warm.
