Electricity price war
Over the past two years, we’ve seen price cuts from all major suppliers in the electricity market. We’ve also seen an increase in the number of discounted electricity deals available for new customers - as well as recurring discounts for electricity customers who pay by direct debit and receive bills online.
However, in September 2017, SSE Airtricity and Bord Gáis Energy announced that price increases would be implemented by them in November 2017. These announcements were quickly followed by price rises from Energia, PrePayPower, Pinergy, and Electric Ireland.
How to make sure you get the best deal on your electricity
There are great savings to be made by switching electricity suppliers regularly.
The biggest discounts are still to be found on plans for new customers, and moving from one supplier to another when the minimum term of your contract is up could save you hundreds of euro a year.
