bonkers.ie was the first energy price comparison service in Ireland to be awarded accreditation by Ireland’s independent energy regulator, the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU).
There are 10 licensed electricity suppliers in Ireland. If you are unsure who supplies your electricity you should contact ESB Networks on 1850 372 757.
In order to present you with the most accurate comparison results we need to know if you are a "Rural" or "Urban" customer. Rural standing charges are higher than urban standing charges due to the additional costs of maintaining supply to rural customers. If you are unsure, your supply region is detailed on your bill.
A NightSaver meter is a special meter that has two dials. The first dial records the number of electricity units used during the day and the second records the number of units used at night. Customers on the NightSaver tariff are charged a discounted rate for electricity used at night. We need to know if you have a NightSaver meter in order to make sure we compare the correct tariffs and show you the most accurate savings.
Your electricity consumption depends on a number of factors, including the number of people who live in your home and the appliances you use. To calculate your savings you for each of the available tariffs, we need to know how much electricity is consumed at your home.
You can tell us this in kWh or €, and for best results you should tell us your annual consumption in kWh - but don't worry if you're not sure, we can estimate this for you based on the national average consumption figure which is published by the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU).
