Energia promotional codes are sometimes available that allow new customers to get extra discounts on their gas and electricity rates when signing up online.
The current Energia Promotional code (August 2018) for Dual fuel is – CHEAPDUAL . Using this code online will get you 29% off their electricty rates and 28% off gas PLUS a €50 credit to your account.
We estimate that an average medium sized urban household with gas for both heating and hot water would use about 11000 KwH of gas a year. Electricity usage in such a home would typically be about 4200 Kwh a year.
If this type of household has never switched, and are still paying energy bills by cheque or cash ,their annual fuel bill would be a total of €1855 a year.
Switching to Energia direct on the Energia website and using the Promo Code CHEAPDUAL would end up costing that household €1540 in the first year. (Paying by Direct Debit).
This is saving of €315
There is a better dual fuel bundle deal available from Panda Power – they have a special offer available via Switcher.ie of 28% off their normal rates. That works out at €1502 over the first year .
See our Dual Fuel Price Comparison for more up to date figures.

Energia only began offering gas and electricity to residential customers in Ireland in January 2014 and they already supply electricity to about 65,000 customers and gas to around 35,000 .
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.
