**PRESS RELEASE**: LET THE PRICE WAR BEGIN: OVER 90,000 CONSUMERS UNLOCK NEW MARKET BEATING ELECTRICITY & GAS OFFERS

The people power of more than 90,000 Irish consumers has once again succeeded in unlocking market beating electricity and gas offers in Ireland.

 

The offers, from Bord Gáis Energy include group discounted electricity-only offers and dual fuel offers.

 

One electricity only offer has a 12% electricity discount in Year 1, and €140 cash back off any electricity bill at any time. Similarly, a dual fuel offer has a 14% electricity discount and an 8% gas discount in Year 1, and €140 cash back off any electricity bill at any time.

 

The market beating dual fuel offer boasts a combination of significant cash back, and a meaningful discount which could wipe up to €337* off energy bills in the coming year.

 

Setting a new bar in energy discounting, every household in Ireland should be eligible to take up one of the offers unlocked, including:

 

  • Existing Bord Gais Energy electricity and gas customers, and
  • Households in rural areas restricted to electricity-only offers
  • The Big Energy Switch offers are also obligation free, which means customers can use it them to negotiate a better deal from their current supplier.

 

Anyone can access the offers by visiting www.onebigswitch.ie. The offers are open to all One Big Switch members until midnight on Friday 6 May 2016.

 

One Big Switch Senior Campaigner; David Liston said today, “These market beating offers unlocked by One Big Switch members are testament to the strength of people power.

 

“It’s proof that determined consumers working together can help to relieve the energy affordability crisis in Ireland.  

 

“I would invite householders to see how these offers work for them and if the numbers stack up, then switch. They can also call their existing supplier and ask them to match the offer.”

 

The offer is available to residential customers throughout the 26 counties in the Republic of Ireland who join the campaign and switch online at www.OneBigSwitch.ie by midnight on 6 May 2016.

 

Those who are not yet registered can still do so at no cost or obligation.

I would like to know how to save on my electricity. I'm in a two bed apt electric storage heating and it costs a fortune to keep up with payments. I some time go with heating to save money. I know people that live in houses at home most of the day and their energy bills are no where near mine!!!!
