Most of the Irish energy suppliers have announced forthcoming price cuts in the past few weeks.
Flogas said they will cut unit rates on gas by 3% on April 1st. They have the smallest amount of domestic gas customers.
Last week Electric Ireland said they will be cutting gas unit prices by 2.5% from April 1st 2015.
SSE Airtricity announced earlier in the year that they would also drop prices on April 1st. Thire prices will fall by 4% for gas and by 2% for electricity. (On unit rates and standing charges. )
Bord Gais Energy will be cutting prices from the 16th March 2015 . They are cutting gas unit rates by 3.5% and electricity unit rates by 2.5%.
We expect Energia to annouce similar price cuts soon.
We will update our figures on the Cheapest Gas and Electricity suppliers as soon as the price changes take place.
The easiest way to cut your fuel bills is to switch suppliers. Someone stuck on the standard rates , using typical amountsof energy , who has never switched from the old standard ESB/Bord Gais would be paying €2273 a year for both fuels . If they switched to the cheapest dual fuel deal from Energia they could be paying 15% less – a sgnificant saving of €347 a year
(To get this deal you have to switch online to Energia where you can use a special promotional code (“UNBEATABLE”) to get an extra 1% discount off their rates. This would result in a total cost of €1926 in the first year for someone using the amounts above. (Code expires 31st March .)
