“From 1 October SSE Airtricity will reduce retail gas tariffs for its domestic and smaller business customers in Greater Belfast by 10%, following on from an earlier reduction of 7.8% in April this year. In addition firmus energy will also reduce gas tariffs, from the same date, for domestic and small business customers in the Ten Towns licence area by 5%. firmus energy has also committed to reduce it gas prices by up to 10% in Greater Belfast.

“Northern Ireland customers have some of the lowest gas prices in the EU and they compare favourably with gas prices in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland.”
