Getting the best price
How to get the best deal on your utility bills
Given the number of suppliers in the market there's an opportunity to shop around to get the best deal:
- Be aware of the suppliers in your area
- Consider the tariff you are currently on, if you are on a standard variable tariff it is likely that you are not on the most competitive deal
- Check out other tariffs - the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland (CCNI) has recently developed a Domestic Energy Price Comparsion Tool and a Small Business Energy Price Comparsion Tool which outline the electricity and gas tariffs available from every supplier in NI for domestic and small business energy users.
- Check out the Electricity Price Comparison Table and the Gas Price Comparison Table developed by the Consumer Council.
Another factor that greatly determines the size of your bill is how much energy you use. Investing in energy efficiency measures can also help you reduce your bills this winter. Please refer to your supplier for further advice.
