NEA response to Defra’s consultation on reducing personal water use
Post on 02nd Oct 2019

NEA NI response to the Utility Regulator price control for firmus energy (Supply) Ltd 2020-2022
Post on 17th Jul 2019
NEA has supported the Regulator’s work to protect more low income and vulnerable customers from unexpected price rises. The efficiency and cost effectiveness of gas distribution networks play a key role in tackling fuel poverty levels and we need to redouble our efforts to move as many households as possible who are reliant on home heating oil to cleaner, greener natural gas. This also provides low income households with a more flexible and affordable monthly or pay as you go option.
