This promo code has just been extended to July 31st 2015 – and it will get you 20% off their electricity and 18% off gas rates.

We estimate that a typical urban home relying on gas for heating and hot water would use about 18000 KwH of gas a year. Electricity usage in such homes would typically be about 3500 Kwh a year.
If you switch online to Energia and use this promotional code – This would result in a total cost of €1805 in the first year for someone using the amounts above.
Energia only began offering gas and electricity to residential customers in Ireland in January 2014 and they already have about 100,000 residential customers.
The main thing to realise is – that if you are stuck on old ESB/Bord Gais standard rates you can save significant amounts by changing your supplier or even just by switching to paying by Direct Debit and getting eBills.
