This will see the typical bill paying customer needing to find up to an extra £55 per year.



Customers with a keypad (PAYG) meter will see a yearly increase of about £56 per year.

Raymond Gormley, Head of Energy Policy at the Consumer Council, says, “This unwelcome news for Click Energy customers in Northern Ireland comes at a time when many are already experiencing increasing pressures on their household budget.

“However, we are aware the increase is due to the continuing rise of wholesale energy costs.

“Any consumers who are experiencing financial difficulty and are struggling with their energy bills should contact Click Energy to find out how they can help during this time.”

Raymond continues, “The Consumer Council would encourage all consumers to shop around to ensure they are on the best energy deal.

“Click Energy has stated that there will be no exit fee applied to customers who switch suppliers before 1 September 2021.

“To support consumers in the switching process, our website has a free independent energy price comparison tool which empowers consumers to compare all electricity and gas tariffs across Northern Ireland in one place.

Raymond adds, “In the last year over 72,000 consumers have used this tool to get the best deal.”



The Consumer Council recognises that energy costs are one of the biggest household expenses.

Their website has a number of free resources including Switch On: A Guide for Home Energy Users to help consumers be more energy efficient at home, get the best from their electricity or gas supply and save money.

Consumers can also get in touch with the Consumer Council for free independent advice by calling Freephone 0800 121 6022 or by emailing
