In August 22 we had an Electric Ireland sales rep call at our home and after his sales pitch told us if we changed to them as a provider it would be a special fixed rate for 12 months. …

Never ever sign up with Electric Ireland NI by far the worst electricity company in the whole of the NI. Nobody answers the phone. On hold constantly. No willingness to help. Was promised the Tesco Voucher and never received this. And also still no govt mandated energy voucher. Hungry money thieving company with no regard for customers.

Switched to electric Ireland before Christmas, they then doubled their rates from January 1st, then blocked my attempt to switch back to PowerNI. Never again will I deal with this company. Also their app for topping up just does not work, either logged in or as a guest.

Avoid at all costs a terrible company full off bulls#! + artists and the worst customer service I have ever seen. I’m switching as soon as possible with all my family and advising everyone to do the same before you have to deal with them.
Every 1 star review I have read sums them up perfectly even there copy paste reply is worthless

Have tried phoning on numerous occasions over the past few days only for them to hang up after being on hold for 1h and12 mins, asked for 2 callbacks which I never received. Have sent an email, DM them on Facebook and still no response. Have not received my £600 voucher as of 28th February. Customer service is disgraceful.

Good start as they offered £100 of your bill and also offered 10% of your base rate. Agreed to pay £80 per month and review in 6 months time. So first bill comes in and with £100 off first bill I’m thinking I should have £20 credit off next …

I have been trying to get through to someone for the past hour, like this is not a new thing, this is always the case when ringing electric ireland. If there’s staffing issues employ more staff and pay them better so they will stay, its not like your not making money from customer. Joke of a customer service line

The worst customer service I have ever known of! I have rang multiple times plus emailed and messaged through social media platforms about not receiving my £600 energy voucher which I have not yet got a reply about. Only have until 31st march to redeem it and I have no clue whether I’m going to get it or what the hold up is.

Possible that this is the worst energy provider I have ever worked with. There is no customer service, you will never be able to speak to them. The discounted rates quickly disappear, when you try to cancel you cannot.
