firmus energy cuts Natural Gas prices by 8.77% for home and business customers

firmus energy announced today that it is to drop natural gas tariffs for its 95,000 customers across the province by 8.77% from October 2019.

For customers in the Ten Towns network area, the typical household bill will drop by £61 per year1. The typical household bill in the Greater Belfast network area will fall by £54 per year1.

Confirming the price change Michael Scott, managing director of firmus energy said:

“We are pleased to announce a reduction in natural gas bills for our customers, particularly as we come into the winter months.  firmus energy continually monitors and reviews its tariffs to ensure customers are getting the best prices possible and the steady drop in wholesale gas commodity costs over the last year has allowed firmus energy to pass these savings onto our customers”.

 ‘’A price reduction is always welcome news and I am delighted that over 95,000 homes and businesses across the province will soon receive a letter with details of our price drop. The new, lower natural gas cost will come into effect in early October,’’ Michael concluded.

This price reduction follows consultation with the Utility Regulator, the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland and the Department of the Economy and has coincided with the fall in wholesale gas commodity costs over the last year.
