Electricity retailer Energia will be powering up 82 of Carphone Warehouse’s shops around Ireland with 1.5 GigaWatt hours over the next 18 months in a deal valued at about €360,000.
The mobile phone retailer has recently made a significant investment in its new connected world format stores in Carrick-On-Shannon, Co Leitrim; Crescent Shopping Centre Limerick; and Henry Street, Dublin, with plans for more stores.
Carphone Warehouse also opened new stores in Castlebar, Co Mayo, and Portlaoise, Co Laois, before Christmas, with the creation of 15 jobs.
“With our extensive network of stores around Ireland, finding the right energy supplier is a big deal for us,” said James Fahey, head of Property and Facilities, Carphone Warehouse. “We are happy that in choosing Energia as our electricity suppliers, we are sourcing the most competitive rates combined with expertise in energy efficiency.”
Shane Canavan, key account manager, Energia, said Carphone Warehouse joins 65,000 other Irish businesses that are with Energia.
In addition to renewable assets, Energia also operates a 750MW gas-fired power station in north Dublin.
