26th August 2016 – The award-winning Irish National Heritage Park in Ferrycarrig, Co Wexford has signed a major new electricity deal with competitive energy supplier Energia.
 
The new energy deal will see Energia provide electricity to the centre. The Park already uses the latest technology alongside Stone Age technology – a 25 kwp solar power system works alongside microliths and megaliths.
 
Situated on the banks of the River Slaney, The Irish National Heritage Park brings visitors on an unforgettable journey through Irelands past. Visitors can explore reconstructed historical sites depicting life in ancient and medieval Ireland, located in picturesque surroundings in the cornerstone of Ireland’s Ancient East.
 
Maura Bell, Manager, Irish National Heritage Park, commented that, “Like every Irish business, we look for a mixture of the best value and service when deciding on our energy supplier. We are delighted with this deal with Energia. Energia have also been able to provide us with very valuable advice on energy efficiency.”    
 
Commenting on the deal, Michelle Kells, Energia said: “We are delighted to win the business of the Irish National Heritage Park. It’s a significant endorsement of the great value that Energia can offer Irish businesses switching energy provider.”
 
“We also support businesses through innovative energy programmes like Energia’s ‘Cash for Kilowatts’ scheme that provides grant funding to companies for energy efficiency projects. It means that any company carrying out an energy efficiency project can qualify for grant funding based on the amount of energy they save. The grant can fund up to 30% of the project cost. This scheme is open to all businesses, whether or not they are customers of Energia. 
 
As well as benefitting from the generous grants, businesses will also make very significant ongoing savings through the energy efficiency projects. For example:
 
  • Lighting: LED and high efficiency lighting can typically reduce your lighting costs by up to 75%
  • Heating: a new boiler or heating controls can save over 25% of your annual fuel costs
  • Refrigeration: new systems can reduce your costs by up to 30%

Energia has a 26% market share of the Irish business electricity and gas market supplying the energy needs of over 60,000 business customers. In addition to renewable assets, the company also operates a 750MW gas fired power station in north Dublin.
 
Energia has offices in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Belfast and Omagh.
