I timed it. It took all of three minutes to move my electricity account from Bord Gais to Airtricity.
All you need is the internet, your lecky bill and bank details.
While Bord Gais is up to 14 per cent cheaper than the ESB, the discount only runs for a year.
If you were one of the 300,000 or so who made the Big Switch to Bord Gais last year, check your bill, the discount may have ended.
Move over to Airtricity which has a 13 per cent discount on the ESB until the end of the year.
