Our fixed rate energy plans allow you to lock in your gas and electricity rates for 12 or 24 months. It protects you from any sudden fluctuations in the market giving you peace of mind.
All unit rates, standing charges and any change in other 3rd party costs are covered. Only Government taxes are not covered because we can't fix these (e.g. VAT, PSO and Carbon Tax).
Energy prices can go both up and down. They are based on international wholesale prices and are impacted by many different factors. If you're on a fixed rate energy plan and energy prices go up, any increase will not be passed on to you. However, decreases in rates will not be passed on either.
There are no discounts for this product. The benefit is knowing that you're protected and will pay the same price if energy costs increase. If you are an existing Bord Gáis Energy customer currently receiving discounts on another contract then you will lose your discounts.
You pay a premium rate on a fixed rate energy plan because you are paying for the certainty of knowing you're protected against any price increase. If you are worried about any potential increase in energy prices then this product might be suitable for you.
