Why should I bother switching?
It’s easy to do and switching to a cheaper energy deal could save you up to €475 per year.
How do I switch my energy?
To switch your gas and electricity supplier you’ll need the following:
- Your most recent gas and electricity bill
- Your gas point reference number (GPRN) and/or your meter point reference number (MPRN) - both should be on your energy bill
- A meter reading, so your current supplier can send your a final bill before you switch
- Your bank account details
If you don’t know where to start, our energy guides can help you with the basics, explain more about the Irish energy market, and help you to understand how to switch to a new supplier.
How long does it take?
Switching is quick and easy. We can show you how much you could save in just a few minutes.
Then, once you’ve chosen your new energy deal it takes no more than 28 days to move to your new supplier and shutdown your old account.
During this time, you won’t lose your existing supply of gas and electricity.
How often should I look for a new deal?
At least once a year.
Most energy discounts last for the first year, so if you’ve been with the same energy supplier for over 12 months then the chances are you’re paying more than you need to for your gas and electricity.
