With a target to generate 70% of Ireland's electricity from renewables by 2030, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing more and more green energy suppliers popping up in the Irish market.
Ecopower has become the 14th energy supplier available for sign up through bonkers.ie and is heating up the competition in the renewable energy sector. Here we take a look at who Ecopower is and what tariffs the supplier has on offer.
Who is Ecopower?
Ecopower was established in Ireland in 1996 as a renewable energy development company, with a particular interest in on-shore wind energy developments. Ecopower’s electricity trading company, Ecopower Supply, secured an Electricity Supply Licence from the CRU in 2011 and it recently started supplying electricity to homes around Ireland.
The company is wholly owned and managed from offices in Kilkenny.
Ecopower generates 100% green, renewable energy from its five wind farms in operation around Ireland. With 43 wind turbines, Ecopower generates enough wind energy to supply 60,000 homes with electricity!

One of the benefits of signing up to Ecopower is its unique electric bike draw. If you sign up for an energy plan from the supplier you could be in with the chance of winning an electric bike worth €2,500 four times a year!

Ecopower Standard Smart Tariff (SST) 25% Discount Electricity
If you already have a smart meter installed, you could avail of 25% off Ecopower’s Standard Smart Tariff unit rates. With this 12-month price plan, Ecopower offers unit rates across three time periods.
There are day rates on offer of just 19.33 cents per kWh and night rates available of just 9.8 cents per kWh, including VAT.
For both tariffs, Ecopower requires payments to be made by direct debit, which is pretty much standard across all suppliers these days. It’s also important to note that an early exit fee of €50 also applies if customers decide to leave before their contract is up.
