Consumer Council welcomes Power NI electricity reduction

The Consumer Council has welcomed this week’s announcement by Power NI to decrease its domestic tariffs by 9.2 per cent from 1st April 2015.

Aodhan O’Donnell, interim chief executive of The Consumer Council said, “Power NI’s 551,000 domestic customers will benefit from this reduction, with the average household bill decreasing by £53.

“Today’s announcement by Power NI alongside Budget Energy’s tariff reduction announcement earlier in the week is good news for consumers and for the energy market.

“We are calling on other electricity and gas companies to step up to the mark, reduce their prices and open the way for a much more competitive local energy market.

“Consumers can also help promote competition between suppliers by shopping around to take advantage of falling prices. Our advice is to stay alert to supplier price changes and be prepared to switch where savings can be made.

Aodhan added, “Consumers being active in the market will motivate companies to work harder to attract or retain their customers, provide better customer service and offer competitive deals.”
