Bright price changes

In November 2020, bright announced that it was to increase its electricity unit rates by 10.1%, effective from 2 December. This added an extra €1.55 pwe week to the average bright customer bill.

How does bright generate electricity?

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requires that electricity suppliers disclose the sources they use to generate their energy each year.

Bright began supplying electricity in Ireland in July 2020 which means that, until they have been operating for a full year, they are unable to show their fuel mix and how the electricity supplied has been sourced.

They guarantee that your electricity is sourced from 100% renewable generation and will be able to show this in the Fuel Mix Disclosure table after 12 months.
