Smart Meters are being rolled out across Ireland to give customers convenience, control and to support energy saving. 

Every standard electricity meter in Ireland will be upgraded to a new Smart Meter with ESB Networks replacing 2.4 million meters nationwide by 2024.

Smart Meters offer increased opportunities for renewable energy generation on our journey to reduce carbon emissions for a cleaner, greener, and healthier environment for everyone.

What are Smart Meters?
Smart Meters measure your electricity usage and automatically send this information to you and your energy provider.

Smart Meters enable you to see how much energy you are using and the cost of your usage so you can easily identify when and where savings can be made.
Smart Meters benefits to customers

Reduce energy costs:
Smart meters make you more aware of your energy usage around the home, helping you keep track of your spending so you can take steps to make savings before your next bill.

The power is in your hands:
Smart energy controls mean you can switch your usage to times of the day when electricity is cheaper for your consumption data available to view in the Energia app.

Accurate billing:
With a Smart Meter there is also no need to manually read your meter, your usage info will be sent automatically to your provider, so your account is always up to date!

Faults can be found faster:
New functionality will identify and flag any faults with ESB Networks so fixes can be made faster.

Have been with Energia 2 years now - just renewed again .excellent
Have been with Energia 2 years now and have always found them great. Contract was up for renewal. Looked at switching but when I went to the other companies their prices were much the same (the was not correct). Plus it was hard to get on the phone with the other companies. Switches would have to be done online. Based on experience, this is not good if a problem comes up with service or pricing. So I'm sticking with Energia who answer their phones and are always polite.

Converted cynic.…
Recently my contract with Energia needed renewal and I called Sharon there determined to wrangle the best available deal for electricity. Sharon was charming and managed to convince this old bird NOT to swap suppliers. Ten out of ten Sharon.
