Confirming the price change Michael Scott, Managing Director of firmus energy said, “We are pleased to announce a reduction in natural gas bills for our customers, particularly as we come into the winter months. 

“firmus energy continually monitors and reviews its tariffs to ensure customers are getting the best prices possible and the steady drop in wholesale gas commodity costs over the last year has allowed firmus energy to pass these savings onto our customers.



‘’A price reduction is always welcome news and I am delighted that over 45,000 homes and businesses across the province will soon receive a letter with details of our price drop. The new, lower natural gas cost will come into effect on 1 October,’’ Michael added.

This price reduction follows consultation with the Utility Regulator, the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland and the Department of the Economy and has coincided with the fall in wholesale gas commodity costs over the last year.
