Flogas Announces 2.5% Price Cut, Saving Customers €21 a Year

We aren’t even a week into January and the energy price cuts are coming thick and fast!

Today, Flogas announced a 2.5% cut in the standard gas unit rate for all of its residential customers. The price change will come into effect on February 1st and will save customers about €21 a year.

Saving of €21 a Year

Flogas customers on their standard tariff with the average annual consumption of 13,800 kWh are currently paying around €960 a year for gas. 

This 2.5% price cut will bring the supplier's unit rate down to 5.05 cent per kWh (excluding VAT), meaning that customers will pay about €939 for a year’s worth of gas, once VAT, Carbon Tax and Standing Charges are added in.

And that’s a reduction of €21 on Flogas’ existing rates.

Wholesale Prices at a 5-Year Low

This move represents the second time that Flogas has cut prices in the last 12 months, following a 3% unit rate reduction last February.

The announcement also comes quickly on the heels of news that wholesale gas prices are now at a 5-year low, due to unexpectedly mild weather last year. It’s encouraging to see Flogas - and others (Electric Ireland cut its gas prices on January 1st) - passing part of these wholesale savings on to customers.

20% Direct Debit Discount

Flogas is also currently offering a 20% discount to new customers who sign up to its direct debit plan.

At an annual cost of about €798 a year to the average Irish household (including taxes and charges), it is the cheapest gas only offer on the market at the moment, and it's available for sign up through
