The average customer can save close to €380 a year when they switch energy suppliers.
As wholesale energy prices continue to fall it's only a matter of time before even more energy suppliers get on board and start lowering their prices.
At bonkers.ie we're all about ensuring consumers are on the best tariffs suited to their needs, so in the spirit of great prices we've decided to put together a list of some of the best dual fuel energy plans currently available.
