Shop Around For Best Energy Tariffs.

Electricity and gas prices are on everyone’s mind at present, as prices rise.

Using less energy helps to keep costs down, but it’s also important to shop around for the best tariff offerings on the market. Often times you can make savings simply by switching supplier.

Switching supplier is free and the CRU (Commission for Regulation of Utilities) provides all the information you need (see link HERE).

The CRU have also accredited three price comparison websites which means you can trust the information they provide. The three price comparison websites are:-

  1. www.bonkers.ie
  2. www.switcher.ie
  3. www.power to switch.ie

For those of you considering switching from Credit to PrePay, it’s worth checking out the CRU’s advice on the pros and cons of each.
