    Changed to electric Ireland, was with glowpower but they put their prices up alot during the year of the contract

    Same happened me with my previous supplier. They gave me a better deal than electric Ireland in the end but I said to them at the end of the contract I will be worse off, they didn't argue the point and we parted company.

    Check bonkers.ie and put in your details and you will be able to compare plans. Only sign up for a 12 month contract as they only seem interested in new customers and not existing ones.

    Just ring and ask for sales, it usually gets someone on the phone quick. As for electric ireland, they have a webchat function on their website and it will get through to someone quicker than calling.

    With panda power n got a phone call today for renewal at 2.30 to say prices are going up after today n I can lock in today at the lower price today only.

    70c standing charge n 29.5c a KW is what I'm on n going up a cent today on a business plan. Seems high to me. Submitted with bonkers n they'll get back to me Monday.

    Don't like getting phone calls last minute with a gun to your head to sign up on the spot. Usually means I'm not getting a good deal!

    29c/kw is high, should be able to get it at around 18/19c per kw.

    Got this back from bonkers, someone may shoot Putin pronto!-

    Please note that due to ongoing significant volatility in the wholesale markets all providers have taken the decision to suspend the selling of contracts with immediate effect until further notice.

    Don’t know how you can lock in your electric price, as far as I know, you’re only able to get a percentage discount on the price of the day.

    For anyone attracted by the Free Sat or Sunday weekender rates, please beware of small print which can have excessive usage clause which puts a limit on amount you can use e.g Bord Gais offer free Saturday or Sunday but currently limit it to 100kw per month (approx 30 or 7.50 a week). I have electric car and was attracted but its all in the small print. Where this is offered the tarriff for other days is higher too.
