We are ESB Networks. We ensure that electricity gets to the homes and businesses of our 2.3 million electricity customers, safely and efficiently. We have invested over €6bn in the electricity network over the last 10 years to ensure that it is reliable and enables communities and businesses in Ireland to grow and develop.
We provide a wide range of services to our customers, all of whom need to be registered with an electricity supplier. Each year we carry out over 9 million meter readings and provide these to your supplier in order to ensure you receive correct billing. We also deliver a range of technical services such as restoring supply when network faults occur, for example due to storms. Other services, some of which are chargeable, include undertaking line alterations at the customer’s request and carrying out service alterations requested via suppliers.
Your safety is our priority. Electricity is a powerful energy source but it can be dangerous. Always follow our safety guidelines. To ensure you stay safe, stay clear of overhead, underground and fallen electricity wires, always look out for electricity wires when you are outside . ‘Stay safe, stay clear’. For emergencies call 1850 372 999.
Acting responsibly in all aspects of our business is one of our key priorities.
In order to meet the targets set out in the National Climate Action Plan, ESB Networks is developing standard module connection options to facilitate the faster connection of customers deploying low-carbon technology. ESB Networks is looking for stakeholder feedback on our proposed alternative MV connection options for electric vehicle charging sites in urban service station locations.
The current footprint for MV substation buildings means most sites in urban locations cannot readily accommodate electric vehicle charging points without the service station operator making significant changes to their existing operations/site layout. Introducing an alternative connection option for MV customers requires significant stakeholder consultation.
ESB Networks is considering a potential solution which we aim to introduce. We would like to get feedback from all stakeholders and we welcome any comments interested stakeholders may have on this proposal.
Consultation will close on 30th September 2020.
