The price rise will add about €120 a year to the average Bord Gais electricity bill.
Bord Gais customers may think that they are getting the lowest price Electricity at the moment – but they may have missed out on the recent news of price drops by ESB – Electric Ireland which means that ESB are the cheapest supplier. Bord Gais customers should be thinking of switching back to ESB – Electric Ireland . ESB customers need to contact ESB to get moved to the lower rates – it is not automatic and will involve signing for Direct Debit and ebilling to get the lowest rates.
