Energia Price Change Announcement
17th September 2021
Energia’s home energy prices to rise due to increased external market costs
Energia will increase home energy prices, effective from Monday 18th October. While the company makes every effort to deliver the best possible value to customers, these increases are unavoidable as a result of global energy market conditions.
Energia electricity customers will see an increase of 15.7% on their bill. For the average customer this will mean an increase of €4.28 per week.*
Energia gas customer bills will increase by 18.5% or an average of €3.59 per week.*
The increase for dual fuel customers will be 16.9% or an average of €7.88 per week.*
Andy Meagher, Director ROI Customer Solutions said: “Driven by increasing wholesale electricity costs and global commodity prices, regrettably we have taken the decision to increase the price of our electricity and gas for residential customers. We have worked to support our customers over the course of the pandemic and this decision was not taken lightly but was unfortunately unavoidable due to global conditions. We will continue to review wholesale electricity and gas prices, to provide customers with the best possible value and service.”
*Based on EAB (Estimated Annual Bill) effective 18th Oct 2021.
9th June 2021
Energia will increase home energy prices effective from the 08th July.
The changes, which are being driven by rising wholesale energy costs, will see electricity and gas customer bills increase by 9.7% each. For an average customer this equates to €2.41 per week on their electricity bill, €1.71 per week on a gas bill or €4.12 per week for Dual Fuel.
Andy Meagher, Director ROI Customer Solutions said: “Over the past twelve months we have reduced and frozen our prices where possible, however these increases are, unfortunately, now unavoidable and are the result of external factors that are impacting all suppliers, primarily the rising cost of wholesale gas and electricity. We do appreciate the impact that this increase will have on our customers but we are committed to delivering the best possible value and customer experience in the market.
5th March 2021
Energia will be increasing home energy prices effective from April 5th 2021. While we did reduce our residential gas and electricity prices in June of last year and introduced a further price freeze to Spring of this year, this increase is unavoidable due to increasing external wholesale market and network costs.
Electricity customers will see an increase of 8.6% on their bill. For the average customer this will mean an increase of €1.97 per week. Energia gas customer bills will increase by 5.7% or an average of €0.93 per week. The increase for dual fuel customers will be 7.4% or an average of €2.90 per week.
Andy Meagher, Director ROI Customer Solutions said: “At Energia, we continuously monitor wholesale electricity and gas prices to ensure we can deliver the best value to our customers. In line with this commitment, we announced a price reduction in 2020 across electricity and gas, and kept our prices frozen until the Spring of this year. As well as delivering the best value possible we were also aware of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on communities. In our efforts to support households, disconnections were suspended during the lockdown and we have proactively worked with customers who may be experiencing financial difficulty. While increases at this time are unfortunately unavoidable, we remain committed to providing the best value and care to our customers.

Good news, we are extending our price freeze into the spring!
8th October 2020
After such an unusual year, it’s easy to forget the usual challenges that winter brings. With more of us than ever working from home, Energia are here to help you keep safe and save energy and money this winter. Unlike some of our competitors, we promise not to increase our standard unit rate energy prices this winter. Our best-value fuel prices mean you can keep your home as cosy as ever while staying cool about your bill.
We will be freezing our prices for residential customers until January 31st 2021, which means our customers are guaranteed not to have any increase in their energy bills during the colder winter months. As well as freezing our prices we can also confirm that no disconnections will take place during the current six-week lockdown period. We know that for some of our customers the current circumstances may present challenges. As we always have done, we’ll continue to work with any customers who may be in arrears on an individual and entirely sensitive basis. Disconnection is always a last resort for Energia and we encourage customers in difficulty to engage with our dedicated customer care team by entering into a payment plan appropriate to their circumstances
Now more than ever, in these unsettled times it’s nice to be able to offer some reassurance to you. This price freeze applies to all our 100% green home energy plans. With more people being at home during the day our customers can have double peace of mind knowing they won’t be damaging their pockets or the planet.
