firmus energy natural gas tariffs to rise next month

firmus energy (Supply) Limited will be writing to its customers to advise that both Ten Towns and Greater Belfast tariffs will be increasing next month.

firmus energy (Supply) Limited will be writing to its customers to advise that both Ten Towns and Greater Belfast tariffs will be increasing next month.  From the 5th April, 2018 firmus energy customers in the Ten Towns network area will see a price increase of 6.8%. Tariff prices in the Greater Belfast area will increase by 8.8% and will take effect from the 16th April, 2018.

The price increase means a typical Ten Towns average household bill will rise by £3.15 per month, equivalent to 73p per week1 and a typical average household bill in Greater Belfast will rise by £3.63 per month, equivalent to 84p per week2. 

Michael Scott, managing director of firmus energy said: 

“We work hard to keep our tariffs as low as possible, to offer price stability for customers and give them confidence in natural gas. 

“The decision to raise our tariffs is regrettable and never easy, however in this instance the cost of bringing natural gas to our customers has increased and our price rise has been unavoidable.

“Our pricing team has engaged extensively with the Utility Regulator, the Department for the Economy and the Consumer Council for Northern Ireland in relation to our regulated tariff in the Ten Towns licensed area.

“We keep our tariffs under continual review to ensure we are bringing the best possible prices to our customers,” Michael concluded.

The price changes apply to over 85,000 customers across the Ten Towns and Greater Belfast area.
