Depending on the energy supplier, and type of energy product, the non-commodity costs may be seperated from the commodity costs and shown on your invoice as a seperate line or simply included in the overall unit rates.
The non-commodity costs comprise of government originated charges and third party system charges. Examples of the government originated charges are as Feed in Tariff (FiT), Electricity Market Reform (EMR) and Renewables Obligation (RO). Examples of third party system charges are Distribution Use of System (DUoS), Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) and Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS).
