by Airtricity is Ireland’s cheapest electricity and dual fuel home energy supplier
Airtricity, Ireland’s fastest-growing energy supply company, is officially Ireland’s cheapest supplier of electricity and dual fuel energy products for the home. The company has today unveiled a range of new and competitive electricity and dual-fuel products that will help home energy consumers make great savings.
As well as announcing the best discounted unit rates in the market, Airtricity has also announced that it is offering consumers guaranteed tracker discounts for up to two years. Airtricity is the only supplier operating in the current volatile wholesale energy market to offer home consumers the reassurance of Two Year gas and electricity discounts.
Electricity-only customers looking for the most competitive prices in the market will save around €100 more in one year and almost €190 more in two years if they switch to Airtricity’s best value rates than if they switch to ESB Electric Ireland’s best post-deregulation prices.
The savings are even better for existing ESB Electric Ireland customers who never switched to the semi-state’s initial post-deregulation discounts, which have now since been replaced. ESB Electric Ireland customers on the company’s standard rate, the highest standard rate in the market, will save almost €250 over two years – €161 in their first year and €86 in their second year – if they switch today to Airtricity’s 16% discounted electricity rate.
Dual-fuel customers switching to Airtricity will save up to €110 more in a year and around €260 more in two years if they switch to an Airtricity dual-fuel bundle than if they choose a dual-fuel package from ESB Electric Ireland. Similarly, dual-fuel customers switching to an Airtricity bundle instead of gas and electricity from Bord Gais Energy will save around €80 more in a year and over €200 more over two years with Airtricity than if they get their home energy from Bord Gais Energy.
Following today’s announcement Airtricity is officially Ireland’s cheapest supplier of electricity and dual fuel energy products for the home. Airtricity’s best value 16% discounted electricity product (in comparison to Airtricity standard rates) is 18% cheaper than ESB Electric Ireland standard rates and almost 13% cheaper than the recently deregulated semi-state’s best introductory rates.
