Flogas fuel mix
The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requires that energy suppliers disclose the sources they use to generate their energy each year. If suppliers choose not to make a declaration, they are allocated the residual fuel mix, which is the fuel mix left over from the All Island fuel mix after individual supplier’s fuel mixes have been calculated. For 2017, Flogas was allocated the residual fuel mix.
