4.8% decrease in regulated electricity prices is appreciated at this tough time

The Consumer Council appreciates the announcement today that Power NI’s tariff will decrease 4.8% from 1 July 2020. This reduction reflects some of the recent falls in wholesale prices. The average Power NI annual bill will decrease by £29.

This means that the average Power NI bill will now be £571 per year.

Paulino Garcia, Head of Energy Policy at The Consumer Council said, “This a really tough time for both households and businesses in Northern Ireland. Our research shows that consumers are concerned about rising prices, cash-flow, and how they will make ends meet. Therefore, this saving of around £30 per year, although small, will be welcomed by households."
