Thread Name: What do you pay for electricity?
Subject: RE: What do you pay for electricity?
In Ireland (republic of )electricity costs 7.43 pence per unitplus v.a.t.of 12.5%.HoweverI, am a pensioner(not old age I hasten to add)so I get 300 units free per bi monthly bill,which as you can appreciate, is a big help.I also have free travel on public transport. All old age pensioners in the Irish Republic have 300 units of free electricity plus free phone rental, plus free travel on all public transport.It's really not a bad place to live.
