Hi there

Has anyone switched suppliers recently would like a recommendation, I'm with PowerNI at min and thinking of moving to Airtricity but not entirely sure either. Are there other suppliers in N Ireland I can compare with?

Thanks

Carol

    Don't forget Budget Energy; cheaper than Airtricity (on paper) and no lock-in. See other articles on here about the comparisons...

    I'm saving about £1.50 a week since I switched to Budget last October.Very happy,the only downside is if you are on a powercard,you have to top up at PayZone.But that's a minor niggle as my PayZone is in the offie!hic!!

    You don't have to top up at PayZone - I do it on line via my phone, couldn't be easier!

    I switched to airtricity just before christmas, which is a hard time to judge what savings we make as days are darker for longer, but for the first time this week we have seen a saving of about £2 this week but still early days to tell whether it will be a long term saving.
    Life is what you make it.

    You will save money as Airtricity are cheaper than PowerNI. You will save even more if you switch to Budget

    The's also no contract with Budget so you can switch after 30 days if you don't like it.

    I was with NIE, changed to Airtricity...locked into a 2yr contract and the savings to be gained over the 2 yrs. Now I am going to move to Budgetenergy .
    I think to jump will cost me £40 but then the £40 will be credited to my new Budget a/c, so I am not out of pocket :)

    Budget have no contract so even if they put their prices up...I can jump back to whoever is cheapest.

    I am loyal to no one and at the moment Budget is cheapest.

    All I have done so far is phone them up to get the info , I shall be filling in their forms etc and go from there :)

    If you read further back at this forum there are also more info on the Electricty companies in NI..

    Another new supplier enters the market - Electricireland http://www.electricireland.com/electricirelandni/residential/price-plans/index.jsp

    keypad price is 15.59PPU -

    Budget energy at 14.81PPU still the cheapest.
