Who is Flogas?

Flogas launched in Ireland in 1978. In addition to supplying gas and electricity to homes across the country, it is also Ireland's second-largest provider of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).

In addition to its standard rates, the suppliers offers two discounted gas plans, one discounted electricity plan and one discounted dual-fuel plan. Flogas also has a Pay As You Go (PAYG) gas plan available that comes with €25 credit for new customers.

When did Flogas start offering electricity?

From mid-2018, Flogas Ireland began taking steps to expand into the commercial electricity market. In November of 2019, Flogas acquired Just Energy’s customers, a move that was completed by the end of the year.

Originally only supplying electricity to former Just Energy customers, Flogas now offers electricity-only and dual-fuel plans to new customers as well. In fact, customers were able to switch as early as January 2020.

Why switch providers? You should always seek to compare and change electricity and gas suppliers every 12 months to take advantage of discounts for new customers. Doing so can save you €300 to €400 a year!

Note that discount percentages are only applied to the unit rate, not the entire bill. As such, you'll still pay the full rate for the PSO or carbon levies, standing charges etc.

If you're considering switching to Flogas Ireland, don't forget to compare tariffs and prices of other electricity and gas providers.

Flogas Natural Gas Prices

Flogas offers four different gas plans. It even has a Pay As You Go (PAYG) gas plan for customers that want to "have more control" over how much they're spending (even though the rates are more expensive). Besides the standard offer, all gas plans have a 12-month contract and charge an exit fee of €50.

The cheapest Flogas natural gas offer is called Green Future Gas 30%. With this plan, customers get 30% off the standard gas unit rate. The average household would spend around €600 per year with this offer. That's €275 less than what the same household would spend on the standard plan or PAYG plan.

You can view and compare Flogas natural gas rates in the table below. Unlike electricity rates, gas rates do not vary by location.

Flogas Natural Gas Prices
Gas Plan Payment method Unit rate Annual standing charge Carbon tax EAB*
Standard All 6.407c/kWh €112.35 0.535c/kWh €875.93
Green Future Gas 30% Direct Debit 4.484c/kWh €48.84 0.535c/kWh €600.93
Save 7% Non Direct Debit 5.959c/kWh €110.69 0.535c/kWh €824.96
Pay As You Go Natural Gas Pay As You Go 6.407c/kWh €112.35 0.535c/kWh €875.93

*Estimated annual bill (EAB) based on average consumption figure of 11,000 kWh of gas per year. Last updated: February 2021

New customers signing up to the PAYG plan can get a €25 welcome credit. However, you'd save more money by signing up for the direct debit offer. As with almost all suppliers, it's typical for PAYG customers to spend hundreds more than credit customers on the same amount of energy.

Compared to the standard dual fuel offer, the average houshold would save around €600 per year with the Green Future Dual Fuel 31% deal!

Flogas exit fees

Exit fees from fixed-term contracts are €50 per fuel, which is a fairly standard fee in the Irish energy supplier market. If you cancel switching to Flogas within 14 days of beginning the switch, you do not have to pay an exit fee.

If you pay the more expensive standard rates (and therefore are not locked in a contract), you will not be charged an exit fee for leaving Flogas Ireland.

Flogas Reviews

Speech bubbles

On customer review site Trustpilot, Flogas Ireland has only five customer reviews and an overall score of just 2.5 out of five stars. Four customers gave Flogas bad review scores, and one customer gave the supplier a poor score. Not a single customer has left a positive review so far for Flogas Ireland.

The few issues that were reported mainly pertain to problems with LPG deliveries. It's also apparent that these customers had poor expierences when dealing with Flogas Ireland customer support.

I have rang numerous times. I have made complaints to customer service. I've been told the truck broke down, the staff are out sick, they will speak to their managers, etc, etc, I have left a private message on facebook and no ring back and no gas!

Flogas customerTrustpilot

Due to the very small amount of reviews, we are unable to conclude that all Flogas customers have experienced these frustrations. It is also important to keep in mind that customers are more likely to leave a review when they are upset rather then when they are satisfied.

Flogas PAYG Services

Flogas offers a Pay As You Go (PAYG) gas plan for customers that would like more control over how much their spending. This offer is available for both existing and new customers.

The majority of Irish energy suppliers do not offer opt-in Pay As You Go services, but rather reserve prepaid energy for customers experiencing financial difficulties or having trouble paying their bills. In fact, Flogas and Prepaypower are the only Irish energy customers to offer PAYG gas to new customers.

Credit can be purchased at any Payzone outlet. It's the same for PrePayPower top ups. If you lose your top-up card, you can purchase a new one at any Payzone outlet for €1.

The minimum top-up amount is €10 and the maximum amount is €50 at one time. The maximum amount of credit the gas card can hold is €250. New customers will also receive €25 credit for switching to this Flogas PAYG contract.

If you run out of credit, there is a €10 emergency credit option available.

Fuel mix

Flogas' fuel mix figures for 2019 show that its usage of coal for fuel generation is significantly higher than the all-island average of 2.6%, as is its peat usage at 10.4% when compared with the average figure of 4.%. Coal is not a renewable or clean energy source and so we'd like to see that figure trending downwards over the years to come. Peat is classified as a slow renewable and doesn't present the same issues as coal.

It's heartening to see the 34.8% renewable energy fuel source, although at first glance this figure may seem low when compared to the island-average of 54.0%. However, the all-island average for renewables does tend to be skewed by the presence of 100% renewable energy providers.
