Gas & Electricity Suppliers in Ireland

Compare all suppliers and switch to the lowest energy bill

What do I need to switch gas and electricity suppliers in Ireland?

You can switch gas and electricity suppliers in a few minutes online with these three pieces of information:

Your MPRN - an 11 digit number found at the top of your electricity bill.
Your GPRN - a 7 digit number found at the top of your gas bill.
A recent meter reading from your electricity meter, gas meter or both.

To make sure that you’re switching to the very best plan available to you, it’s also recommended that you have a pretty good idea of how much gas and electricity you use per year, as well as the name of your existing price plan.

Is it cheaper to get my gas and electricity from the same supplier?

It is marginally cheaper to get your gas and electricity from the same supplier.

However, if you get your gas and electricity from the same supplier, the cheapest price currently available is €1,507.76.

Will comparing gas and electricity suppliers save me money?

The answer to this question is almost always yes, and here’s why:

Ireland now has a total of 10 gas and electricity suppliers, making for a very competitive energy market. To attract new customers, many suppliers offer discounted rates as sign up incentives, which can add up to savings of over €300 in your first year.

Most of these discounts expire after 12 months, or when your contract comes to an end, at which point your discounted rate revokes to standard pricing.

So, if you switch suppliers every 12 months, you’ll guarantee that you’ll always be on the best introductory rate in the process.

How much money will I save by comparing and switching gas and electricity suppliers?

Right now, customers on typical standard rates, consuming the national average amount of gas and electricity annually could save the following amounts in their first year by switching:

  • Customers who switch electricity suppliers can save €197
  • Customers who switch gas suppliers can €378
  • Customers who switch both electricity and gas to the same supplier can save €613

These figures will go up or down, depending on how much energy your household typically consumes. The more you use, the higher the savings figure will be.
