Northern Ireland electricity tariffs

Updated: 29 May 2016
Share |
Tenants should be aware that they can now choose from four companies selling electricity to the residential market (PowerNI, Airtricity, Budget Energy and Electric Ireland). The current tariffs are set out below. However, tenants should be aware that the terms and conditions that apply to each of these offers will vary between companies. For example, some companies require security deposits for non-direct debit tariffs. It is up to tenants to familiarise themselves with these Terms and Conditions before choosing a tariff (see web links). Terms and conditions are subject to change at any time.
For further information about these tariffs contact the relevant supplier directly. There's also a useful website called enirgy.info which has a calculator allowing you to work out the best available deal for you.
