How do you find the best electricity deal?

You’ll need to consider things like the size of your household and your energy consumption, for example:

  • If you live in a household with high consumption: a big discount will probably work best, as it will significantly reduce your bills over the discount period (usually 12 months).
  • If you live in a small household with a lower-than-average consumption: you might find a plan with a smaller discount that offers cashback or bonuses upfront is better value.

Either way, finding the best electricity deal is really straightforward using Switcher.ie’s gas and electricity comparison tool and takes just a few minutes.

What is a fixed price electricity deal?

A fixed price electricity deal is where your unit rate and standing charge are set for the period of your contract.

With a fixed price plan, you don’t need to worry about rising energy costs but your monthly bill amount isn’t fixed. The more electricity you use, the bigger your electricity bill will be.

Fixed rate plans are not normally the cheapest plans, but they offer you peace of mind and protection against any price hikes that may occur throughout the duration of your contract.
