How to find the cheapest electricity and gas plan
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.
