Who is the CRU?
The Commission for Regulation of Utilities is Ireland's independent energy and water regulator. The CRU is designed to protect consumers by monitoring energy price comparisons websites, like bonkers.ie.
The CRU accreditation
The CRU accreditation is awarded to domestic energy comparison services that meet the high standards set out in the CRU’s code of practice.
To be awarded the accreditation, energy comparison services must make the switching process as transparent, impartial, and straightforward as possible for consumers.
A service you can trust
bonkers.ie was the first energy price comparison service in Ireland to be awarded the CRU’s accreditation in March 2012.
Our accreditation has been renewed every year since, most recently in January 2023 when we received the accreditation for the tenth consecutive year.
To maintain the accreditation, price comparison services are subject to regular monitoring. Every year the CRU also rigorously audits bonkers.ie to ensure that the information we display on our energy comparison services is accurate, impartial and up-to-date.
We’re proud to display the CRU’s accreditation on our site as it reflects the high standards set out by the CRU that we continue to maintain.
