Price Change Announcement
In recent weeks, other major electricity suppliers in Ireland have announced price increases for their customers. PrePayPower has resisted passing on similar increases for as long as is practicable but unfortunately we now confirm that we will have to pass on an increase with effect from 1st December 2017.
The increase will be approximately 0.09 cent a day or €2.83 per month. This is the first increase which PrePayPower has had to pass on to customers since 2014.
In the case of PrePayPower, the increase is driven by increasing wholesale electricity costs and increased regulated charges for the distribution of power. This increase comes after 5 decreases that saw unit rates being reduced by almost 12%.
Cathal Fay, CEO of PrePayPower said; "We regret having to increase prices after being able to pass on reductions in price for so long. We are committed to keeping our standard unit rate as low as possible for our customers".
Impact of change for 24Hr Urban customers
Total costs will increase by €2.83 per month based on a 24H Urban customer with consumption of 4,200 units. The unit rate will increase to 17.16 cent per KWh (an increase of 0.76%) which remains the lowest standard PAYG unit rate in the market.

PSO Levy Announcement
From October 1st 2017, the Government imposed Public Service Obligation levy (the PSO levy) which all Electricity Customers must pay will increase. From that date, the Government will set the PSO levy at €8.73 per month; an increase of €2.04 per month on the current figure.
PrePayPower unit rate, standing charge and PAYG service charge are not impacted by this change and will remain the same for all our customers.
