19 November 2010

19th November 2010: The world outside may be frightful but inside Dublin‟s  Westin Hotel today it was so delightful as legendary Big Jack Charlton launched Airtricity‟s festive gift for Irish energy consumers of 8 weeks free gas that can now be found under every Christmas tree in Ireland.

Jack, who knows all about the biggest saves that get you through, was decked out in his seasonal Christmas jumper to unveil a sack-full of gift-wrapped energy savings for Irish homeowners. He was joined at the tree by Santa‟s Little Helper, model Sarah Kavanagh, and young Irish fan Sophie Cooke (4), from Bray, Co. Wicklow. While it‟s cold outside there‟s no need to be red-nosed this Yuletide season. Customers can switch now, just in time for Christmas, to Airtricity‟s „Biggest Save eBundle‟ to enjoy a bumper 20% discount off regulated gas unit rates – equivalent to 8 weeks free gas!

Airtricity‟s festive gift of 8 weeks free gas to every customer who switches to its „Biggest Save eBundle‟ will be just the Christmas cheer that every Irish homeowner and family needs right now to combat the chill winds of winter and the Ghosts of Christmas Present! Switching to Airtricity for 8 weeks free gas couldn‟t be easier and doesn‟t require any letters to Santa! Airtricity‟s massive 20% gas unit rate discount is available when customers switch their home gas and electricity in one bundle from other „bah-humbug‟ suppliers to Airtricity for its cheaper energy rates.

Launching Airtricity‟s  festive gift of 8 weeks free gas for Irish energy consumers, legendary Jack Charlton commented:
“This is a great Christmas present for every Irish family and householder right now. All of Ireland knows it‟s the biggest saves that get you through and Airtricity‟s 20% discount on gas rates when bundled with electricity is the biggest save I‟ve ever seen. Airtricity‟s 8 weeks free is a great bundle to put under your Christmas tree and is the perfect way to kick-start a Happy New Year for you and yours!”

Airtricity‟s „Biggest Save eBundle‟1 guarantees Irish home energy consumers a massive 20% discount on regulated gas unit rates tracking Bord Gáis Energy‟s regulated standard tariff unit rates, and a 12-month fixed-price electricity unit rate (equivalent to a 6% discount on current regulated unit rates), regardless of whatever happens to ESB Customer Supply‟s regulated electricity rates following deregulation in the New Year. Airtricity‟s bundled gas and electricity discounts are the „Biggest Save‟ available from any single energy supplier in the market.

Airtricity has today announced that this limited offer will only be available until Midnight on New Year‟s Eve, Friday 31st December.

Airtricity is Ireland‟s fastest-growing energy utility, and currently supplies cheaper gas and electricity to over 375,000 customers. More customers have made the better switch this year to Airtricity for cheaper gas and cheaper electricity than any other energy supplier, and the company continues to out-perform its nearest rival in the domestic gas and electricity switching market. The independent company is also the fastest-growing employer in the domestic energy supply sector – currently employing over 900 staff Airtricity has created 500 new jobs since it entered the domestic energy supply market last year. Changing energy supplier has never been easier and only takes a few minutes. Switching to Airtricity‟s „Biggest Save eBundle‟ for 8 weeks free gas couldn‟t be simpler, both for new customers as well as existing Airtricity electricity-only and dual fuel customers – customers can grab Airtricity‟s „Biggest Save eBundle‟ by switching online now at www.airtricity.com or by calling 1850 40 40 80.
