Who Is Ecopower Ireland?

A green lightbulb

Ecopower differs from many energy providers in Ireland as it is both an energy producer and a supplier.

This 100% Irish owned company started in 1996 as a renewable energy development company, specialising in wind energy developments.

Ecopower Ireland manages 43 wind turbines located in five windfarms in Counties Donegal, Mayo and Kilkenny. The energy production from these turbines is enough to feed 60,000 homes. The company continues to develop new solar and windfarm projects.

It brands its provider division as Ecopower Supply offering Irish homes 100% renewable electricity.

What Are Ecopower Ireland Electricity Rates and Tariffs?

The Estimated Annual Bill (EAB) calculations take the national annual average kWh electricity usage of 4,200 kWh. Calculations of discounts are against the Ecopower standard tariff. Prices are updated as of October 2021 and include the VAT.

What Are the Ecopower Ireland Standard Electricity Rates?

There are very few reasons to consider Ecopower standard tariff as it comes without any discounts. All energy suppliers in Ireland provide standard tariffs you default to if you are out of contract and are no longer entitled to discounts.

The main attraction to standard tariffs is they carry no exit fees and no contract duration. Although they are obviously more expensive, you do get the flexibility to change to another provider or contract at any time. This can be interesting if you do not expect to live at a property for an extended period of time.

Ecopower Supply also offers smart meter electricity rates.

To benefit from these tariffs, you will need both a smart meter and a confirmation from ESB Network that the CTF value of your smart meter aligns with the provision of Interval Data. This is a process that can take up to 40 days.

The smart meter hours are split into the following times:

  • Day rate — from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Night rate — from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
  • Peak rate — from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For the Ecopower smart meters plans, you will need to register for direct debit payments and online billing. Doing so is quite normal with most energy providers to get the cheapest rates available.

Warning It is important to note that once you change to a smart tariff, you cannot go back to a non-smart tariff.

What Is the Ecopower Ireland Electric Bike Draw?

On top of the great savings you can receive on clean energy for your home, every quarter, Ecopower holds an electric bike draw worth €2,500 for all new and existing customers. Some terms and conditions apply for the draw.

Are There Ecopower Ireland Exit Fees?

Looking at the above pricing summary for Ecopower tariffs, it is clear the Ecopower Supply 25% discount rate is the most economical regardless of your meter type or location.

Since this plan is a one year fixed rate, it comes with a fairly standard exit fee of €50 if you end your contract before the end of the 12-month period.

The standard tariff plans do not have any exit fees and, therefore, allow you to change with no penalties or exit fees.

Does Ecopower Ireland Offer Gas Rates?

No, Ecopower does not currently have gas tariffs. As the company is still new, it remains to be seen what their long term plans are for their Ecopower Supply division.

What's in the Ecopower Ireland Fuel mix?

Ecopower claims their energy supply is 100% green electricity. This is still subject to verification by the CRU.

As Ecopower only began providing electricity to Irish homes in January 2021, there is still no fuel mix data available. The CRU will be able to provide these details when Ecopower Supply has been operating for at least 1 year.

What Are the Ecopower Ireland Reviews Like?

A green lightbulb

As Ecopower is such a new company, there haven't been any reviews left for the provider. At first glance, the company's website seems clear, concise, and transparent. We could not find any alarming negative reviews or comments to date either.

The only reviews we could find about this company are employee reviews about the working conditions. If it is any indication, the company does rate 4 out of 5 stars on the Glassdoor website.

All of these factors are not much to go on, but they do paint a positive first impression about the provider.
