Carry Out, the Irish off-licence franchise, has awarded the electricity supply rights for its 60 stores to electricity provider Energia in a one-year deal worth €250,000.
The deal with Energia will offer Carry Out a reduction of up to 10% on its electricity bills.
Energia also offer their customers an energy efficiency programme which can reduce energy consumption by up to 20%.
The electricity requirement of 2.9 GWh is the equivalent of supplying 620 homes.
Sarah O’Mahony, marketing manager, Carry Out, said: “We are pleased to take advantage of this opportunity to deliver value and improved service to our retailer network. We look forward to developing a mutually beneficial relationship between Energia and Carry Out.
This is yet another great benefit for our store owners.”
Aidan Brennan, key account manager, Energia, said: “Businesses around Ireland are strongly encouraged to examine their electricity outgoings to identify where they can save money and maintain competitiveness. Switching to Energia is easy and businesses can make savings of up to 10% on their electricity bills. Further savings are possible by implementing an energy efficiency programme.”
Founded in 2003, Carry Out is one of the country’s leading off-licence franchise.
Carry Out off licences are exclusively supplied by the GWL Group (Galvins Wholesale Ltd), one of the largest independent importers and distributors of wines and spirits in Ireland.
A member of the Viridian Group, Energia sources power from the group’s power station at Huntstown, Dublin.
The Viridian Group’s second power plant at Huntstown was recently completed, bringing its investment in the Republic to 500 million with a capability to supply up to 17% of the electricity needs on an all-island basis.
Energia has offices in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Belfast and Omagh.
