Energia have a promotional code that gets new customers a further 2% off their already cheap gas and electricity unit rates.
The promo code is only valid when you switch to them for dual fuel. The latest promo code is SAVEME. (Extended to Sept 30th 2014). You can use this code here on the Energia Online Switching Page
We have calculated that using this code will get the cheapest price for both fuels for someone using the national average for gas and electricity. This price is €40 a year cheaper than the latest Bord Gais Energy dual fuel offer – details of that here
Using the average usage figures of 5300 kw/h Electricity and 13800 kw/h Gas - for anyone switching to Energia using the promotional code – we have calculated that the 1st year total charge for electricity and gas would be €1884 .
This is the currently the best price for getting both fuels from a single supplier or for getting gas and electricity from 2 separate suppliers.
It is a one year contract and like all the suppliers – prices are not fixed for the year. Leaving Energia before the end of the contract will incur a penalty of €50.

Energia only began offering gas and electricity to residential customers in Ireland in January 2014. Their introductory offer was, at the time , the lowest available price for customers who switched to them and signed up for dual fuel. But after just a few days - Electric Ireland responded with a better offer on Electricity for new customers.
Then we had the One Big Switch marketing company which organised a €80 cashback offer for customers who switched their electricity to Bord Gais.
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.
