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 and gas 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.
