Energia promotional codes are sometimes available that enable new customers to get extra discounts on their gas and electricity rates when signing up online.
The current Energia Promotional code (February 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 €1786 a year.
Switching to Energia direct on the Energia website and using the Promo Code CHEAPDUAL would end up costing that household €1405 in the first year. (Paying by Direct Debit).
This is saving of €381 and works out as the cheapest dual fuel deal in Ireland 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 €1455 in year one when their €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.
