Fixed Price Gas and Electricity

cheapest gas ireland

Fixed rates on mortgages and savings have been around for years – but the availability of fixed rates on energy in Ireland is not that common. One company that does offer fixed rates is Just Energy.

Almost all the energy companies in Ireland have  had price increases on gas and electricity in the past few weeks.

SSE Airtricity started the ball rolling  with their increases kicking in from July 14th –  (Elec 6.4% ; Gas 12.3%)
Most of the others soon followed with price increases at Electric Ireland , Flogas, Energia , Panda Power , Prepay Power and Pinergy ranging from  5% to 12.3% , all taking  effect from August 1st 2018.

Soon after – Bord Gáis Energy said it will increase prices on August 5th – with electricity going up by 5.8% and gas up 4.7%

(These increases are to the standard rates – but there will sometimes  be lower prices available for new customers who switch provider.)

 Fixed rates on mortgages and savings have been around for years – but the availability of fixed rates on energy in Ireland is not that common. One company that does offer fixed rates is Just Energy.

The current dual fuel fixed rate option that is available from Just Energy-   only through the Switcher website  – is looking slightly more  attractive after all those price increases were announced. (Especially if this latest round of price increases are not the only ones over the next 12 months.)

The fixed rates on offer through Switcher would work out at €1627 for average gas and electricity usage over one year.  (The unit rates are fixed for 12 months.)

By comparison – the current best dual fuel offer is from  Panda Power through the Switcher website  .  This Panda Power offer is with 28% off both gas and electricity rates. This will work out at €1502 over one year. (€125 cheaper than Just Energy)

  1. Am not sure how u figure out the yearly costs, but why do u not just list out the unit cost of each company?

    • The figures include cashback offers for new customers – so the company with the lowest unit rate might not work out as the cheapest overall.
