ESB have now installed over 900,000 smart meters nationwide. The roll out is being progressed on an area-by-area basis and customers will get plenty of notice when they will be coming to your area.
Smart meters will give customers access to more accurate and regular information on their electricity usage. Estimated meter readings will no longer be used, meaning bills will not be estimated.
Positively, smart meters will support the move to a carbon free electricity network - enabling smart grids, e-vehicles, local renewable generation and microgeneration.
