Key points from the interview
- The average gas and electricity bill has gone up by just over €2,000, approximately, over the past 15 - 18 months.
- The amount your bills have increased will really depend on the size of the home you live in and your energy usage.
- Electricity costs have gone up by around 130%, while gas costs have increased by around 170-180%.
- The €600 energy credit was very welcome and it comes on the back of the €200 credit we received earlier this year. That’s €800 being paid out to over 2 million households nationwide.
- The Government can’t fully shield us from rising costs and those on social welfare will receive more, through the free electricity allowance or the winter fuel allowance.
