Electric Ireland have become the latest supplier to announce a price drop for their electricity customers in Northern Ireland.
This will be welcome as many of us continue to spend more time at home – so at a time of year when energy use tends to drop we have actually seen it increase. Therefore, a 4.1% decrease in electricity prices will be welcomed as good news.
What does the price drop mean for customers?
Electric Ireland have over 91k electricity customers in Northern Ireland, around 11% of the domestic market, who will now benefit from this latest price decrease.
The price change will come into effect from 1st August 2020. It will mean a saving of almost £24 for a typical customer. To see what difference this can make to your bill compare electricity prices with www.powertoswitch.co.uk.
