Check what price plan and discount you're on

To find out what price plan or tariff you're on, have a look at your latest bill. Most energy providers will have this information stated clearly on your bill or in your online account, along with the unit rates you pay and discounts you might be getting.

If you're already a Bord Gáis Energy customer, you can see what plan you're on in the top-right corner of your bill, underneath your account number.

If you're availing of any discounts, you can see the description and value of your discounts on your bill, in the 'Your bill breakdown' section. If applicable, you'll also see your contract end date as well as when your current discount starts and ends. You can download your latest bill by signing in to your online account.

When it comes to choosing the right energy plan, it's essential to understand your options.

Depending on your home heating system, you can select a:

  • Single fuel plan (electricity or gas) 
  • Dual fuel plan (gas and electricity)

If you have a smart electricity meter, you can choose a smart plan. These Time-of-use tariffs charge lower rates at different times of the day or week, allowing you to change your usage habits to reduce your energy bills. You can decide between a single fuel or dual fuel plan for the following options:

  • Standard smart plan
  • Weekend discount plan
  • Free time Saturday or Sunday plan
  • EV smart plan

For both standard and smart plans you can choose green plan options that, depending on the type of fuel you select, guarantee up to 100% green electricity and 10% green gas from renewable sources.*

*Bord Gáis Energy guarantees that 100% of the electricity supplied to you under green price plans is sourced from renewable generation, in accordance with the Commission for Regulation of Utilities Green Source Product Verification process. 10% green gas will be purchased in Europe from Guarantee of Origin Certificates for Green Gas.
