Households can save hundreds on their electricity bills in just minutes with this great offer from one of the country's leading energy providers.

At a time when high energy prices are still a burden for many households, Bord Gáis Energy is stepping up to the plate with an incredible offer that promises substantial savings for new customers.

If you’ve been contemplating a switch in your energy provider of late, then now is the perfect time to make the move.

Here's a look at what's on offer... 

Bord Gáis Energy electricity offer

Bord Gáis Energy is offering a whopping 33% discount on its electricity to new customers, which equates to a unit rate of just over 24 cent including VAT.   

At the moment households on standard rates will be paying around 36 or 37 cent for their electricity. This means you could save around €500 a year just by switching your electricity provider. 

And as a Bord Gáis Energy customer you can also sign up to its Rewards Club, which provides you with access to unmissable experiences, complimentary VIP upgrades and pre-sale tickets for the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin.

To get this new offer you must pay by direct debit and agree to online billing but that’s pretty much standard these days.  

The contract is for one year and it’s a variable tariff. After the year is up, you’ll roll over onto a 5% discount. Or you can switch again to a new deal with a different supplier.

What happens if prices fall?

Thankfully it looks like the worst of the energy crisis is over. 

Since last September, Bord Gáis Energy has cut its energy prices two times, and given where wholesale prices currently are, it’s highly likely it will drop its prices again over the coming weeks.  

As this is a variable-rate offer, if Bord Gáis Energy does reduce its prices later this year then you’ll benefit from this reduction as well. Your 33% discount will continue and will be applied to the new, lower standard rate. 

So you won’t miss out on anything by switching.  

Compare, switch and save on

Bord Gáis Energy isn’t the only supplier offering great deals to new customers right now. For example Electric Ireland is offering a 28% electricity discount to new customers as well as €85 welcome credit. And Flogas is offering a 22% electricity discount plus €150 cashback. 

You might also want to go with a fixed rate or you might want to bundle your electricity with gas and go with a dual fuel deal instead.
