Win prizes by giving us your best suggestions for saving energy!
From October 1st we will all be paying higher energy rates. Bord Gais got the ball in motion back on July 13th announcing a 12% increase in electricity rates from August 1st. Airtricity followed suit on Aug 16th when they announced a 12% increase in electricity rates and a 20% increase in gas rates. This kicked in from Sept 1st. Then surprise, surprise folks, on Aug 26th the ESB announced that electricity rates will increase by 12% from October 1st.
So we will all be paying more as we get ready for another cold winter. Lets not dwell on it though and lets instead create a positive out of this. There are of course many ways we can combat the increases and make changes in our homes and businesses. Last month I gave you some tips on this which you can view here
We want to hear from you though. What tips can you share with us? Lets put together a great guide here and help people all over the country combat the price increases and save money.
