Electric Ireland the second electricity provider this month to announce a price increase

Electric Ireland have today announced they will be increasing their prices by 13.3%, which will come into effect from 1 October 2018. This will see the typical Electric Ireland customer needing to find an extra £64 per year.

Sinéad Dynan, Director of Regulated Industries at The Consumer Council, said: “This is the second electricity price increase announcement this month. With one in five households in fuel poverty and struggling to heat their homes, this reinforces The Consumer Council’s message that consumers must actively shop around to make sure they are on the best deal.”

“To support consumers in the switching process, we have a price comparison tool on our website (www.consumercouncil.org.uk) which uses five simple steps to working out the best deal. We are also inviting consumers to bring a copy of their latest electricity bill to our Energy Switching Workshop on 28 August to see if we can find them a better deal.”  

The Consumer Council’s Energy Switching Workshop will take place on Tuesday 28 August from 10am – 4pm at Floor 3, Seatem House, 28 – 32 Alfred Street, Belfast BT2 8EN.
