Firmus joins in energy price war with 10% cut to its bills

By David Young, PA

Natural gas supplier Firmus has joined the energy price war in Northern Ireland after it announced an almost 10% price cut for customers in greater Belfast.

Firmus has around 50,000 domestic and business customers in the area.

The supplier also pipes gas to 10 towns across Northern Ireland. It said an announcement on its tariff would be made in the coming days.

Announcing the 9.75% cut in Belfast, Firmus Energy managing director Michael Scott said: "We have more than 50,000 customers in the greater Belfast area and continually strive to keep our natural gas prices as low and as stable as possible for our customers.

"Along with our excellent customer service, we have consistently offered the lowest tariff prices for domestic customers over the last number of years and are delighted that this will continue.

"We monitor all costs and global wholesale fuel prices on a daily basis to ensure our prices offer the best value possible and any savings are passed on as soon as we can to our customers."

Last month Northern Ireland's second largest home energy provider, SSE Airtricity, announced that it would be reducing its gas and electricity prices by around 10%.

And Power NI said electric bills for its 500,000 domestic customers would fall by 10.3% from April.
