A typical Power NI customer will have to find a further £68 per year for their electricity, following Power NI’s announcement today of a 13.8% price rise from 1 October this year. 

Speaking to Newry Times, John French, Chief Executive of The Consumer Council, said, “From October, a typical household using Power NI will see their annual electricity cost rise from £497 per year to £565 per year.



“Our analysis shows that this increase broadly reflects the increases we have seen on the wholesale energy markets.

“However, we would wish to highlight that households can still make significant savings within the electricity market in Northern Ireland by annually shopping around for the best deal.



“To support consumers in the switching process, we have a price comparison tool on our website (www.consumercouncil.org.uk), which gives bespoke advice for each household.

He added, “We are also inviting customers to bring a copy of their latest electricity bill to our Energy Switching Workshop on 28 August to see if we can find them a better deal.” 

The Consumer Council’s Energy Switching Workshop will take place on Tuesday 28 August from 10 am – 4 pm at Floor 3, Seatem House, 28 – 32 Alfred Street, Belfast BT2 8EN.
