Cheapest Energia Rates & Tariffs 2020

Energia logo

Thinking of switching to Energia but finding it difficult to pin down information on accurate Energia rates? Or already with the company and interested in seeing how you can better your current tariff? Read on to find out more.


In this article, we'll cover current deals, the cheapest Energia tariff, offers for existing customers, Netatmo deals and Energia Fix Pay. For other information and reviews about the company check out our in-depth Energia page.

Tariff Types

Energia has some attractive deals for new customers. You can even get a €50 bonus just for switching online. They have only three different tariffs, which makes it quite easy to compare Energia rates to other gas and electricity providers.

Put simply, the three tariffs available are:

  1. Dual fuel (gas and electricity)
  2. Electricity only
  3. Gas Only

Each tariff comes with attractive discounts. However, be sure to pay attention to the fine print, as these discounts are on the standard unit rates and not on the entire bill amount. To receive the full benefit of each advertised discount, you must also sign up to online billing and Direct Debit.

Understanding your energy bills can be confusing, so we’ve taken the work out of it by tracking down Energia’s standard rates, as well as the yearly cost at the best discount, (which is the dual-fuel tariff after switching online, opting for Direct Debit and online billing, and then getting €25 cashback).

Customers on an Urban 24-hour tariff who contract the Dual Fuel and cashback offer will enjoy an Estimated Annual Bill (EAB) of €1,413.90, compared to €2,075.80 on a standard tariff.

That nets you a massive saving of €661.90. It also highlights the importance of switching every 12 months in order to take advantage of the discounts offered to new customers by different energy providers.

Energia dual fuel rates

With some of the most generous discounts we’ve seen, Energia’s Dual Fuel offer for new customers is our top pick of their tariffs. Remember that to avail of all the discounts, you must sign up online (to get €30 cashback) and choose Direct Debit and paperless billing. If you leave the 12-month contract early, you will have to pay an exit fee of €100.

In the table below, we have outlined all the discounts available on this tariff so you can see exactly how much it is possible to save. The discounts are subrated from the unit rates, so how much you save will also depend on how much energy you use. Below, you can see an example of how these discounts work looking at a 24 hour urban tariff with the discounts applied. All rates include VAT.

One thing to keep in mind is that to get the full discount you also need to be able to access the affinity code discount, and this is only available to people who work at selected trade associations and groups. You can find a full list of participating enterprises on the Energia website.

If you want to access these discounted dual fuel prices, you'll find them on the website with the promo code DF40. This deal will work out at €1413.90 for twelve months, and it is the second-cheapest dual fuel deal in the country.

Offers for existing customers

Existing customers can also benefit from discounts when they renew their contracts. Dual fuel customers can get 11% off energy unit rates, and single fuel customers can get 10% off either gas or electricity unit rates.

Existing customers should contact Energia in order to get the discounted rate on their renewal contract.

Fix Pay

Rather than receiving bi-monthly payments, Energia also offers the possibility of making monthly payments towards your bills. How it works is that Energia analyses your monthly usage and then suggests an amount which you pay monthly.

You then pick the date that is most convenient for you to pay on (usually just after payday) and that’s it. Energia will then review your payments regularly and adjust them up or down as needed. If you pay too little, you’ll be contacted by them to adjust the amount upwards, and if you pay too much, the extra charges will be refunded.

This option is really useful for spreading out your larger winter payments (especially for heating) over the course of the year. It also makes budgeting easier and removes the nasty shock of opening your bill during the colder months.

You can sign up to Fix Pay online or by calling customer services.

Netatmo offer

As attractive as the gas and electricity offers may be, we highly recommend you also check out the Netatmo smart thermostat packages. These aren't as visibly promoted as the other offers, but they still offer great deals.

In addition to a free Netatmo smart thermostat and installation (worth €329), you'll also get some decent discounts against the standard rates — 25% off for electricity-only customers, and 27% off electricity plus26% off gas for dual fuel customers. Note that there is no gas-only Netatmo package.

If you’re in the market for both a smart thermostat and a new energy provider, we recommend checking out our in-depth article on the Netatmo thermostat, as well as our article comparing the best thermostats.
