Monday, March 23, 2015

It’s time to say goodbye to paper bills! From 1 April, small businesses can save up to 6%* off Power NI’s new lower prices by switching to Energy Online at

Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy company, recently announced a cut in small business tariff rates of 9.2%, saving a typical small business around £200 a year* (based on using 15,000 units p.a.). And not only are prices coming down, but discounts are going up!

Alan Egner, Power NI’s Commercial Sales & Marketing Manager comments:

"We promised that we would always look for ways to reduce prices and save our customers money. I’m happy to say that we can now deliver lower prices and increased online billing discount for small businesses and farms using our online billing service, Energy Online.”

From 1 April, small businesses will be able to save an additional 2% on top of their 4% Direct Debit discount by switching to Energy Online. By going paperless, instead of waiting for your bill to arrive by post, you get an email sent directly to your inbox. In just a few clicks you can access your online account where up to two years’ bills and payments are organised and stored safely, ready for you to view or print at any time.

Alan continues:

“Energy Online can help reduce your energy costs as well as your carbon footprint, no matter the size and type of your business. It is paper and postage free which means less carbon is used during the production and delivery stages, allowing our customers to do their bit for the environment. As a thank you for going paperless, we are happy to reward our Energy Online customers with extra discount off their bills.

“There’s a lot more to Energy Online than a simple online account service. It has lots of free extra features that make monitoring and managing your energy costs much easier, including the option to compare bills as well as bar charts showing consumption, cost and CO2 emissions for every bill. You can also check your balance and submit meter readings online without ever having to call us – which can be really handy if you are responsible for multiple sites.

Over 35,000 commercial customers continue to choose Power NI and last year over 900 businesses returned from other suppliers. Power NI customers are assured of local, friendly service and according to Consumer Council NI, Power NI continually receives the lowest number of formal complaints per 100,000 customers than any other electricity supplier in NI – now for three years running!

Over 45,000 homes, farms and businesses have activated their Energy Online account making it easier for customers to keep a closer eye on their usage and help cut down on energy bills".
