Which Electricity Supplier is the Best ?

In 2016 a customer satisfaction survey was carried out on Electricity suppliers in Ireland by the Commission for Energy Regulation  (CER) .  The survey just involved the top 5 suppliers of domestic household electricity.

Bord Gais Energy came top in the survey with 91% of Electricity customers saying they were satisfied overall.
Not far behind – in joint second placeall with  89% – were Electric Ireland, Energia and SSE Airtricity.
In last place was PrePayPower with 85%.

With such close satisfaction ratings – there doesn’t really seem to be very much of a difference between the customer service levels of the different suppliers.  The main reason for swtching Electricity supplier has got to be the price. You will still get exactly the same electricity down the same wires , through the same meter. It is just the the administration of the billing system that changes – and the price.

You can check out which supplier has the best deals for switchers on our Electricity Price Comparison page. You will see that if you have never switched supplier before – you could easily save around €200 over 12 months by switching to the best deal.


Euro Sterling Exchange Rate Update

Euro Sterling Exchange Rate Update : February 21st 2017 9am

1 EUR = 0.84834 GBP                               1 GBP = 1.18 EUR

See Current Exchange Rates Here
It is worth noting that the pound has gained around 4 cents against the euro over the past 5 weeks putting it within a couple of percent of the best levels we have seen post-Brexit referendum .
Back on May 24th the Pound was worth €1.316 but Sterling fell sharply in June 2016 after the decision of the UK to leave the EU. It went as low as €1.10 at one stage . During the latter half of July it was hovering around the €1.19  . This week GBP is hovering around the €1.18 mark .

Over the past several months Brexit has cast a cloud of uncertainty over the currency markets. This looks unlikely to change anytime soon.
We expect that when the UK  invokes article 50 – it will result in further fluctuations  in the value of Sterling against the Euro . Other significant events in 2017 that could effect the value of the Euro will be the Dutch election on 15th March  and the French election at the end of April.

With so much  uncertainty in the currency markets at the moment –  it could get very stressful for people or businesses planning large Euro / Sterling exchanges in the next few months.   We are likely to be entering a period of heightened volatility which, depending on your timescales and budget, could cause problems if you are not properly prepared.

Using a Currency Broker can remove some of the uncertainty by allowing you to fix an exchange rate as much as 12 months in advance of your transfer.  For good deals on large amounts of currency exchange –  for personal money or  for businesses – see our page on how to get the Best Exchange Rates
