A 19% increase in their gas bills for customers in Belfast: Firmus energy, a Northern Ireland gas supplier, announced a 19.4 percent increase in tariffs for its Belfast customers.

According to the company, the change amounts to an extra £2.75 per week on the average household bill.


The move is expected to have an impact on 149,000 domestic customers.


The company raised its natural gas tariff for customers in the Ten Towns Network area by 38.1 percent a month ago.

“We very much regret having to increase our Greater Belfast tariff however the sheer scale of the increases in global wholesale gas prices have forced our hand.” Said, Chairman of Firmus Energy, Dr David Dobbin

“We know this is an unwelcome increase which will have a disproportionate effect on those of our customers who are most vulnerable.

This is not just a firmus issue, but one faced by energy suppliers across gas, oil and electricity, all of whom will have to increase their tariffs to meet the huge surge in global energy costs, if they haven’t already done so.”
