Dublin, Ireland --- (METERING.COM) --- May 9, 2013 - The Irish energy market price comparison site uswitch.ie has been accredited by the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER).

uSwitch is the second energy price comparison website site to be accredited in the market, having met the CER’s defined standards for accuracy, transparency and reliability. The other accredited price comparison site is bonkers.ie.

The site will continue to undergo audits at least annually by the CER to ensure that it continues to provide a high standard of service.

In recent years the Irish electricity and gas retail markets have become increasingly competitive, providing customers with price discounts and a choice of tariff options from different suppliers. Since 2010 there have been over 1 million electricity switches and over 300,000 gas switches. This has been facilitated by the CER approving a simple and free supplier switching process, to the benefit of customers.
