If you're currently an Energia customer and you haven't updated your plan within the past year, you're likely paying the standard Energia rates, which you can find in the table below. The Energia rate you would pay depends on your meter type.

If you sign up for one of the offers with discounted Energia rates (which we cover next), the discount will apply only to these standard unit rates.

Energia Standard Electricity Rates
Meter Type Day Unit Rate Night Unit Rate
24 Hour 36.29c/kWh 36.29c/kWh
Day/Night 39.76c/kWh 19.08c/kWh
Nightstorage 36.29c/kWh 18.67c/kWh

Last updated: September 2022

In addition to unit rates, your bill also includes fixed electricity costs. Fixed costs include the standard charge (the price you pay just to be connected to the supply) and the P.S.O. Levy. Your electricity annual standing charge depends on your meter type and your location. The P.S.O. Levy is the same for all consumers and energy plans.

The table below shows Energia's annual standing charges per meter type and location, as well as the amount of the P.S.O. Levy. You can also find the total amount that you spend per year on these fixed costs.

Energia Fixed Electricity Costs
Meter Type Standing Charge PSO Levy Total Fixed Costs
24 Hour Urban €236.62/year €56.24/year €292.86
24 Hour Rural €313.33/year €56.24/year €369.57
Day/Night Urban €296.40/year €56.24/year €352.64
Day/Night Rural €392.63/year €56.24/year €448.87
Nightstorage Urban €240.18/year €56.24/year €296.42
Nightstorage Rural €318.03/year €56.24/year €374.07

Energia Gas Rates

Energia Rates for Smart Meters

Electricity meter

Energia Ireland launched special plans for customers with smart meters in March 2021. The Energia rates for these plans depend on the time of day. The hours and rates are broken down into the following times (all times increase by one hour during Irish Standard Time):

  • 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.

Energia offers two discounted plans for customers with smart meters. These plans are called Home Connect Interactive and Home Connect. These plans offer almost identical rates — just the night rate is slightly different.

We break down the discounted Energia rates for these smart meter offers in the table below. We compare electricity prices only, as smart gas meters are not yet available and the rates remain the same as with the other gas offers.

Energia Electricity Rates for Smart Meters
Offer Day Rate Night Rate Peak Rate Estimated Annual Bill
Home Connect Interactive 32.37c/kWh 23.14c/kWh 33.92c/kWh €1,572.97
Home Connect 32.37c/kWh 23.14c/kWh 33.92c/kWh

€1,572.97

Last updated: September 2022

If you sign up for either of these smart meter offers as electricity only, you'll get an additional €35 cashback. If you sign up for these offers as part of a dual fuel plan, you'll get €25 cashback and an additional 1% off the electricity unit rates.

Energia Grow Box Rates

With the Energia Grow offer, you get your own "GROWbox" to start a garden and help with the environment. This offer includes the same electricity and gas rates as the Home plan, except it does not include the cashback. The contract duration is 12 months and the exit fee is €50 for the electricity-only offer and €100 for the dual fuel Grow plan.

For electricity rates only, this Energia grow box offer would cost the average urban household with a 24-hour meter €1,192.08 per year. For dual fuel, it would cost €2,139.59. In addition to having the same electricity rates as the Home plans, it also has the same affinity codes.

The code is "ELECTJUNE" for electricity and "DF40" for dual fuel.

Energia Electric Car Rates

Electric car

Energia offers special dual fuel and electricity-only plans for electrical vehicle (EV) drivers. These plans are perfect for those who charge their EVs at home because they provide reduced night electricity rates. The reduced night rates occur from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m. in the winter months and from midnight to 9 a.m. in the summer.

The nighttime unit rates on Energia's Electric car rate drops to 10.07c/kWh at night and is 34.97c/kWh in the daytime.
