There are thirteen energy suppliers in Ireland - here at Switcher.ie we compare the whole market, so you can find the cheapest plan out there, whether you have gas, electricity, or both.

At the moment, the average customer can save up to €440 by switching from standard tariffs to the cheapest deals on the market.

Which suppliers offer electricity and what’s the cheapest electricity deal?

There are thirteen suppliers that offer electricity in Ireland - BEEnergy, Bord Gáis Energy, bright, Community Power, Electric Ireland, Energia, Flogas, Glowpower, Iberdrola, Panda Power, Pinergy, PrePayPower and SSE Airtricity.

The majority of these providers are traditional electricity suppliers, while Pinergy and PrePayPower both specialise in providing prepaid electricity services. Electric Ireland also offer some prepaid tariffs.

If you haven’t switched electricity on a while, the chances are you’re on a standard electricity rate, which means switching could save you up to €268 - this is because the average standard tariff comes in at €1012.98, while the cheapest plan on the market is just €745 per year for the average electricity customer.

Which suppliers offer gas and what’s the cheapest gas deal?

There are eight suppliers that offer gas in Ireland - Bord Gáis Energy, Electric Ireland, Energia, Flogas, Iberdrola, Panda Power, PrePayPower and SSE Airtricity.

Like electricity, if you haven’t switched your gas supplier in over a year, you’ll be on a standard gas rate by now. The average standard gas tariff comes in at €761, while the cheapest plan on the market is just €621, meaning taking some time to switch could save an average gas user €153.

Which suppliers offer dual fuel plans and what’s the cheapest dual fuel deal?

There are eight Irish energy suppliers that offer dual fuel plans - Bord Gáis Energy, Electric Ireland, Energia, Flogas, Iberdrola, Panda Power, PrePayPower and SSE Airtricity.

The average gas and electricity customer can save up to €440 by switching from standard tariffs to the cheapest deals out there. Depending on your usage, you may make bigger savings switching to individual gas and electricity plans, rather than a dual fuel deal, but some consumers like the idea of just dealing with one supplier on billing and any queries.

How to choose an energy supplier and switch energy

The best way to choose a new energy supplier and deal is to carry out an energy price comparison.

In order to compare deals, all you need is a copy of your recent energy bills and to answer a few quick questions about your current supplier and what you want to get from your new supplier.

You’ll get the most accurate results if you enter your actual energy consumption (which you can find on your bills) but if you don’t have this, don’t worry - you can use the national averages to get an idea of the cheapest deals out there.

You may be worried about switching to a new supplier in case you lose service for a period of time, but there’s no need for concern. All suppliers use the same pipes and cables to supply energy to your home, so there won’t be any interruption in supply.

Once you choose a deal, you just need to enter a few details - including your current meter readings - and then your new supplier will take it from there!
