Written answers (Question to Environment)

While this data is not routinely compiled by Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU), I have asked them to engage with the Deputy on the matter.

Under the Electricity Regulation Act, the CRU is directly responsible for the performance of its functions to a Joint Committee of the Oireachtas, and not to me as Minister. The Deputy may wish to note that CRU provide a dedicated email address for Oireachtas members, which enables them raise questions directly to CRU at for timely direct reply.
