Consumer Council Welcomes Electric Ireland 10% Tariff Reduction

in Energy

The Consumer Council has welcomed the news today that Electric Ireland will be reducing prices for domestic customers by 10% from 21 March.

Richard Williams, The Consumer Council’s Head of Energy said: “It is great news for consumers that now four electricity suppliers out of the six domestic suppliers have announced price reductions. With various new tariffs set to come in at the end of March and start of April now is a good time for consumers to shop around and consider whether by switching supplier or payment method they could save themselves money. The Consumer Council has tools to help. Our online price comparison tool will be updated to reflect the new tariffs and we also have a simple, step by step guide to switching energy suppliers. Both are available at, by contacting us on 0800 121 6022 or via facebook or twitter.”
