Switching with Cost.ie is quick and easy. All we would require from you is:
- Copies of your most recent gas or electricity bill – or both if you are a dual fuel customer.
- Your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) and/or Gas Point Reference Number (GPRN). You can usually find these numbers on the top right-hand corner of your bills.
- A current gas and/or electricity meter reading – so your old supplier can provide you with a final bill and your new supplier can start from that point.
- Your current contract end date. This is very important because if you switch provider whilst still in a contract, you will be given an early termination fee from your supplier.
Once we have a copy of your most recent bill. Your Account Manager will offer you a 1-year and 2-year option based on your tariff and consumption which they have found on your bill. Once you have selected your contract length, you will be given a new supply contract to sign. As we have gone paperless, this will be sent to you via email, and you can sign directly from your computer/phone/tablet.
Once the paperwork has been completed. We will send it to your new supplier for registration. Providing all the details are correct and your application is successful, your account will be active within 4 weeks. Please note that LVMD (very large sites) and NQH account set up can take longer due to the requirement for a meter read from ESB Networks.
