The decision by Electric Ireland to hike its rates by ten per cent has left the Northern Ireland domestic power market less competitive. Before this increase the company, broadly speaking, offered the most attractive charges on the market. Now changing supplier is a less compelling proposition though many consumers can still make savings by switching to the ESB owned firm or its rivals.
Currently Airtricity offers generally the cheapest tariffs but these are only available for limited periods to new and returning customers.
The unfortunate truth is that unless an existing supplier or a new entrant significantly undercuts present rates, long term savings from switching, for many households, will remain relatively modest.
