Energia promotional codes are often available – and they can be used by new customers to get extra discounts on gas and electricity charges when signing up online.
Dual Fuel Promo Code :
The best value switching deal for a dual fuel bundle for households with average usage is from Energia on the Energia website using the promo code CHEAPDUAL. This will work out at €1483 in the first year . This is cheaper than going with separate gas and electricity suppliers.
Tip: See our Dual Fuel Price Comparison for more figures.
Electricity Promo Code :
The current Energia Promotional code (December 2018) for Electricity is – CHEAPELEC . Using this code online will get you 29% off their electricty rates PLUS a €50 credit to your account.
We estimate that for an average medium sized urban household, electricity usage would typically be about 4200 Kwh a year.
If this type of household has never switched, and is paying energy bills by cheque or cash ,their electricity bill will be €1005 over the next year.
The promo code electricity deal from Energia works out at €808 in year one for average usage. (including €50 cashback). This is available only on the Energia website with promocode CHEAPELEC .This works out as a saving in year one of €197 compared to staying on Electric Ireland’s standard rates.
Figures checked Dec 1st 2018
Note 1 – Energia are raising prices from Jan 1st 2019 – the new annual charge for average usage dual fuel will be €1574 (including the cashback offer). This is still cheaper than the next best dual fuel deal from Bord Gais Energy (even before they apply any expected increases.)
Note 2 : If you are not already with Electric Ireland – the best value switching deal for a dual fuel bundle will be from Electric Ireland . With a €200 cashback offer – it works out at €1473 over the first year . They havealso promised not to raise prices until March 2019. If they do raise prices by say 6% – it would bring the total annual price to about €1543 . This would still be lower than the post January Energia price and the current (pre increase) deal from Bord Gais Energy .
Energia only began offering gas and electricity to residential customers in Ireland in January 2014 . They currently supply energy to about 8% of households. Energia are also a major supplier to businesses in Ireland and they supply electricity to about 76% of medium sized businesses
The main thing to realise is – that if you are stuck on old Electric Ireland and Bord Gais Energy standard rates you can save significant amounts by changing your supplier or even just by switching to paying by Direct Debit and getting eBills.
Note – if you are getting the Household Benefits discount on your electricity – you can still get that with Energia. It will be paid direct to your bank account.
