The deals from SSE Airtricity are exclusive to Bonkers.ie and will potentially see large savings for new customers who sign up to their dual fuel or electricity plans.

For those looking to save big on their energy bills this winter, SSE Airtricity is offering two exclusive plans which will potentially see new gas and electricity customers save big.

And what's more, SSE provides 100% green electricity, produced solely from renewable sources of energy across the island of Ireland.

The plans available are exclusive to bonkers.ie and include discounts of up to 30% off Airtricity’s standard electricity rate, but more on that below!

SSE Airtricity

SSE Airtricity prides itself on being the largest generator and provider of renewable energy in Ireland, providing 100% green electricity to homes across the country as well as natural gas.

With a total of 28 onshore wind farms on the island and a combined investment of over €2.5 billion in the development of sustainable energy to date, SSE is committed to ensuring a green energy future on the Emerald Isle.

What plans are available?

SSE is offering new customers a new one-year Home Dual Fuel plan with a 28% electricity discount and a 23% gas discount.

Consumers who want to save big and who are willing to make the leap will pay a discounted yearly bill of €861.60 for their electricity and €715.80 for their gas. This is an estimated annual dual-fuel bill of just €1,577.40 (based on the average annual consumption of 4,200 kWh of electricity and 11,000 kWh of gas as defined by the CRU).   

Also on offer is an electricity plan for new customers offering 30% off electricity for the first 12 months.

This discounted plan will see the average new customer pay just €843.96 annually for their electricity, compared to over €1,200 if you were paying standard rates. 

Both plans have a 12-month contract, provide online account access along with direct debit billing, which you must choose to get this offer. Paperless billing is also obligatory and goes hand-in-hand with the company’s mantra of renewability.

Any caveats?

Although both plans have considerable savings they are strictly available to new customers only and not existing SSE Airtricity customers.

Should you want to switch mid plan there is a €100 early exit fee for the dual fuel plan and a €50 fee for the electricity plan.

An additional cost to keep in mind is that homeowners or tenants who aren't paying by direct debit will be required to pay a €300 security deposit, refunded in full if you switch to direct debit or when your account is closed and balance paid in full.

Where can I sign up?

The new deals are available exclusively through bonkers.ie. You can sign up online or call us on 01 256 0540 and our Dublin-based customer service team can take your order.

However be sure to compare all plans across all providers before making any decisions to find the best deal that works for you!
