There are often some Energia promotional codes available online that allow new customers to get extra discounts on their gas and electricity rates.
The latest Energia Ireland promo code (August 2017) for Electricity is CHEAPESTELEC .
If you enter that code on the Energia Ireland Website you will get 33% off their standard electricity rate for 12 months – PLUS €30 cashback.
This works out as the lowest total price for electricity over one year for average usage. It would work out €207 cheaper over 12 months compared to staying on Electric Ireland’s standard rates.
For Dual fuel – using the promo code CHEAPESTFUEL will get you €50 cashback as well as 29% off their electricty rates and 28% off gas.
We estimate that a 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 grand total of €1702 a year.
Going direct to the Energia website and using the Promo Code CHEAPESTFUEL would end up costing €1354 in the first year – a saving of €348 . This is the cheapest dual fuel deal over one year for average usage at the time of writing.
The next best dual fuel bundle deal would be if this household switched both fuels online to SSE Airtricity – the cost would work out at €1385 in year one when the €200 cashback offer is included.

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.
