Major savings projected for Omniplex Cinemas in switch to Energia

July 20

Ireland’s largest cinema group the Omniplex Group are projected to make major savings by switching to competitive energy provider Energia for electricity and gas in a new deal worth over €2.2 million.

Under the terms of the “dual fuel” deal Energia will provide the group’s 24 Omniplex Cinemas in the Republic and Northern Ireland, The Swan Shopping Centre in Rathmines and The Academy on Dublin’s Pearse Street, with electricity and gas for an initial one year period. Split into two separate parts, the deal will see Energia supply 8.5 GwHs (gigawatt hours) of electricity to the group in a contract worth €1.4 million. Energia will also provide over 4.5 GwHs of gas to the group, at a cost of €800,000.

The Omniplex cinemas included in the deal are located in Armagh, Ballina, Bangor, Carlow, Carrickfergus, Clonmel, Cork, Derry, Drogheda, Dublin – Savoy Cinema, Dublin – Screen Cinema, Dundonald, Enniskillen, Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick, Lisburn, Longford, Newry, Oranmore, Santry, Tralee and Tullamore, Wexford.

Energia are also investing in energy auditing and energy management programs with Omniplex to enable more energy efficiencies through their site network.

The deal is another win for Energia as it grows its market share in the business gas market. Energia has been steadily growing its retail gas business over a number of years and today is the gas supplier of choice to over 20% of the largest industrial and commercial gas users in Ireland. The flexibility of Energia’s offerings gives customer’s a greater choice than the two fixed tariffs currently on offer in the market place.

Commenting on the deal, Paul Anderson, Managing Director of the Omniplex Group said: “In the current climate and with a focus on energy efficiency and cost savings, without loss in quality or service, the switch to Energia was an easy decision.”

Gary Ryan, Sales and Marketing Director of Energia commented: “Working with Energia means that businesses can get more cost effective energy solutions, making a significant difference to the bottom line. Businesses switching to Energia can rest assured that they will also benefit from our excellent customer service.”

He continued, “Energia’s energy offerings, whether gas, electricity or dual fuel, are all about competitiveness. Our incredibly competitive electricity offerings to business are now being repeated for business gas users.”
