Smart Meter Upgrade

Meter by Meter, we're connecting Ireland to a clean electric future

As part of the National Climate Action Plan, ESB Networks is upgrading all electricity meters in homes, farms, and businesses across the country with smart meters. We have now installed over 800,000 smart meters nationwide. The roll out is being progressed on an area-by-area basis and customers will get plenty of notice when we are coming to your area.

View our map below with plans for the smart meter rollout.

Increasing or Decreasing Supply

If you recently added a large extension to your home or added electrical equipment at your premises that requires extra power, then your current MIC may no longer be sufficient for your needs. An increased MIC may be required in such cases.

If you removed some electrical equipment from your business premises, your current MIC level should also be reviewed, as you may need to apply for an MIC reduction. Charges may apply.

Covid-19 Update

  • As part of the National Climate Action Plan, ESB Networks is upgrading all existing electricity meters across Ireland with smart meters.
