Welcome Iberdrola customers to Electric Ireland
Iberdrola customers are moving to Electric Ireland’s electricity supply from June 8th, 2022. Find out everything you need to know here.
Iberdrola customers will be switched over to Electric Ireland’s electricity supply from June 8, 2022. This is due to energy provider Iberdrola leaving the energy market, and the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requesting Electric Ireland take over Iberdrola customers’ electricity supply.
What do you need to do?
If you’re an Iberdrola customer, you don’t need to do anything right now. We’ll switch over your account to Electric Ireland and your electricity supply will remain uninterrupted. While you are with Electric Ireland you will receive our Open Standard Variable tariff.
What happens next for Iberdrola customers?
Iberdrola customers can avail of Electric Ireland’s open standard variable unit rate now that you’re with Electric Ireland. Up until September 1, you can choose to remain an Electric Ireland customer or you are of course free to switch to a supplier of your choosing at the end of this time.
We understand you may still have some questions about this switching process, so we have put together some Frequently Asked Questions below.
Why are Iberdrola customers moving to Electric Ireland?
If an energy supplier unexpectedly exits the market, the CRU has the power to take actions to ensure affected customers are guaranteed continuity of supply and their rights are fully protected. This is done through what is called a Supplier of Last Resort (SoLR) process. In this instance, the CRU has appointed Electric Ireland as the SoLR Iberdrola customers.
What happens to Iberdrola customers now?
Iberdrola electricity customers will be switched to Electric Ireland. During this switch, your energy supply will not be interrupted, and Electric Ireland will engage with all Iberdrola customers about their new tariff and provide information on what the next steps are.
Customers will remain with Electric Ireland up until the September 1 as determined by the CRU. After this date you can switch supplier or choose to stay with Electric Ireland. Electric Ireland will write to you clearly highlighting these options and providing information.
