Now Viewing: New Connections View All

Yes. ESB Networks is responsible for bringing electricity to all electricity customers in the Republic of Ireland. We install all new electricity connections. You will also need to register with an Electricity Supplier in order to purchase electricity.
Go to How to Pay a Networks Invoice for the options available.  Payment must be made before work will start. 
Usually we apply an overall connection charge to the builder for all the dwellings in the development and they incorporate the charge into the sale price.  In some instances however a connection charge may be payable.  
Most connections are completed within 10 working days provided the electricity infrastructure has been installed and the wiring cert has been received.
Once we have the connection point live, either your own electrical contractor or the builder's electrician will switch on the electricity in your new home and let you know when it's done.   
Alternatively you can check with us by calling 1850 372 757 or +353 21 2386555. Please have your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) to hand. (Your builder should be able to provide you with this). This is a unique reference number that identifies your connection point to the electricity network.
Call us on 1850 372 757 or +353 21 2386555, or email esbnetworks@esb.ie, and we will tell you the status of the application and if there's anything holding it up.
