As part of the Climate Action Plan, ESB Networks is replacing existing electricity meters in homes, farms, and businesses across Ireland with next generation smart enabled meters. This new technology which is already in use in over 700 million premises worldwide will bring benefits to customers, the environment, and the economy.
The programme is a nationwide upgrade to the existing electricity infrastructure which is being delivered in partnership with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, the Commission for Regulation of Utilities, the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, and all the electricity suppliers.
To date, over 1.6 million smart meters have been installed across Ireland, and we continue the national rollout. Once exchanged and following the meter’s connection to our secure communications network, customers will have access to the benefits which smart meters deliver.
