firmus energy today announced that it is to reduce its domestic and business natural gas tariffs in Ten Towns by 5%.
This is welcome news for natural gas customers across the Ten Towns in Northern Ireland in which it operates.
The tariff reduction, which was agreed following discussions with the Utility Regulator, DETI and the Consumer Council NI, will mean annual savings of around £29 for an average domestic customer.
Michael Scott, managing director for firmus energy said: “We are delighted to announce a reduction in natural gas bills for our customers, particularly as we come into the winter months. firmus energy consistently keeps natural gas prices in our network area as low and stable as possible for our customers and we are delighted to bring a 5% reduced rate effective from 1 October 2015.
“We will continue to monitor costs and wholesale fuel prices closely to ensure the price we charge our customers is the best value that we can offer.
“As we approach our tenth birthday, we have invested more than £90 million and laid more than 980 km of gas pipelines enabling properties in more than 20 towns, cities and villages to benefit from natural gas.
The reduction will be applied to domestic and business tariffs from 1 October 2015.
