Your business electricity or gas meter will indicate how many units of energy you have used. We then use meter readings to calculate the cost of your business electricity or gas bill.
Business electricity and gas meters are read periodically by ESB Networks and Gas Networks Ireland.
However, we recommend that business customers submit their own monthly meter reading to ensure your bill remains accurate.
When contacting us to submit your meter reading you will also need your MPRN for electricity meter readings or your GPRN for gas meter readings.
These numbers identify your business meter and can be found at the top of a recent bill.
If you have some connectivity issues with your business Smart Meter then a meter reader will call to take a meter reading or you may need to submit your own meter readings.
There are different types of business meter but typically they are all read in the same way.
(Read the numbers left to right and avoid any numbers in red or those after the decimal point).
We need your business electricity and gas meter readings to avoid estimated billing, ensuring your bill amount is always accurate. Your meter readings tell us how much energy your business has used since your last bill and we use this information to calculate your next bill.
On your bill you will see the meter readings which have been used to calculate bill and an indication of how these meter readings were obtained in the meter reading key:
- The letters CU indicate a meter reading has been supplied by you, the customer
- The letter E is shown when your bill has been calculated on an estimate from your previous usage
- The letter A will appear if your meter reading has been supplied by ESB or Gas Networks Ireland
You'll receive email notifications when we require a meter reading, you can submit your own meter readings quickly and easily online, your online dashboard will also alert you when a meter reading is needed, you can view bills, letters and account info online, and track your business energy consumption and costs over time.
