Keeping You & your neighbours connected.


ESB Networks has now installed the one millionth smart electricity meter, as part of the National Meter Rollout Programme, in Kinsealy, Co Dublin.

The meter replacement programme is a key enabler of the Climate Action Plan and is being delivered in partnership with the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC), Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) and other industry stakeholders.

The phased approach to the smart meter rollout began in 2019, and in just three years, despite a series of delays and restrictions due to Covid-19, one million smart electricity meters have been installed as of this week.

Smart meters are putting customers in control of their energy usage and giving them the opportunity to; access more accurate bills; sign up to smart services and tariffs from their supplier and they will shortly be able to access details of the electricity they have consumed from a new ESB Networks Customer Portal.

As the programme progresses, further new customer services will be made available, supporting our transition to a clean electric future, driven by renewable energy. 

With 10,000 meters being installed every week, the National Smart Metering Programme is on track to have every home, farm and business using smart meters by the end of 2024.  The work has been carried out on a phased area-by-area basis and a detailed rollout plan for the rest of the country is in place. 

ESB Networks looks forward to continuing to work with our customers, regulatory authorities and industry colleagues in 2023, as we continue the rollout programme across Ireland.
