How to save money with our best prices & plans

Best electricity deals Northern Ireland

The best electricity prices and deals in Northern Ireland typically include an online account feature as this reduces costs associated with producing and sending paper bills or letters and so suppliers are able to pass savings onto customers. When researching best electricity prices start by looking at online account options first and then check out your preferred payment methods.

Different payment options can impact the price you pay. Direct debit plans normally provide the best electricity prices whereas standard billing plans tend to be more expensive. 

Keypad pay as you go is also a payment option that can offer some of the best electricity deals and many customers like the convenience and control of topping up as and when needed. 

The best electricity plan for you might include more than just the price you pay but also the range of extra benefits available. Our Perks' customer rewards platform offers discounts and cashback deals on big brands, high street and online stores for every customer. With Perks you can save money on everything from groceries to holidays, insurance, fashion or technology. 

To get the best electricity prices and deals, speak to an energy expert in our team who will be able to advise you on the range of plans available to you and provide you with comparative quotes.
