Gas and electricity
Published 22/05/2011 | 14:31
While it sounds easy to shift your gas and electricity over to one supplier like Airtricity or Bord Gais, it isn't the cheapest option.
For a hefty customer with €250 every two months for both gas and electricity, you'd save about €321 per year by switching to Airtricity. But you'd save more by having gas with Flogas and electricity with the ESB. But you'll have to dump all the normal paper bills or paying by cheque to get the big savings.
Best: Flogas Option A €1,289.07 per year
Avoid: Bord Gais standard €1,500
