Green Price Plans

Switch to a more sustainable plan

Having a green plan means that some or all of the electricity you buy is 'matched' by purchases of renewable energy that we buy. 

These come from a variety of renewable energy sources such as wind farms and hydroelectric power stations.

EV Price Plans

We have a number of EV plans to suit every type of EV owner.  From giving you a lower price for the electricity you use at night so you charge your EV for less to helping the environment with 100% green electricity.

Low carbon future

Climate change is one of our world's biggest challenges

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges our world faces and at Bord Gáis Energy we understand that how we use our energy is at the forefront of creating a cleaner, greener world.  

How will we do this?
  1. By helping our customers reduce emissions
  2. By reducing the emissions of the energy system as a whole
  3. By reducing our own emissions
What are we doing?

Bord Gáis Energy’s focus is on helping home and business owners to make better energy use choices, helping the environment while supporting the low carbon ambition of the Programme for Government. To achieve this,

Bord Gáis Energy is continuously investing in innovative products and services that help and support us all as we work towards a shared goal of a low carbon future.

Our Dublin office is a Certified Green building and we’re committed to reducing our internal carbon footprint by 35% by 2025.

We will train and up-skill our engineers in heat pump and EV charger repair.

Together, we will help realise homes that are smart, self-sufficient, energy efficient and are connected with ‘eco systems’ informed by real-time data and insights.

At Bord Gáis Energy we will be at the heart of that transformation.

Making and storing your own energy

Generating energy at home

Generating your own energy supply at home is a great way to decarbonise, reduce our carbon footprints and also take some pressure off the grid at peak times. With Solar PV panels and battery storage, you can capture solar energy to generate and store your own electricity as you require it.

Generation ideas:

Solar PV (Photovoltaic) are solar panels that produce DC electricity when exposed to light. 

Batteries will store energy generated by solar PV during the day and power the home in the evening. 

 A Solar Thermal system is a type of solar collector that converts sunlight into heat. This heat is then used for heating water. 

Switch your Electric vehicle charger at home to source it’s energy directly from your self-generated supply via Solar.
