Electricity usage can now be known live; Smart electricity meters for 250,000 households in Ireland

DUBLIN: New smart electricity meters from now in 250,000 homes in Ireland. These have been installed during the last 18 months. Under the ‘National Smart Metering Programme’, ESB networks are replacing 2.4 million electricity meters.

As part of the program, all families in Ireland will receive a smart meter. They will also have access to the latest technology since installation.

So far, smart meters have been installed in Dublin, Sligo, Limerick, Cork City, Bandon, Portlaoise, Navan and Drogheda.

Electric Ireland is launching several projects for customers who have installed new meters. The ‘Home Electric+’ plans provide users personalised insights on electricity usage through an online account portal.

Customers will also receive monthly e-mails showing which devices use the most electricity.

Those on some plans will receive electricity between 11pm and 8am, or between 2-4am at a reduced rate.

New research from Electric Ireland shows that 82% of consumers want to reduce the amount of energy they use. Eighty-seven percent of users want information on energy use and efficiency. Electric Ireland says smart meters will help meet this aspiration.

Marguerite Sayers, Executive Director of Electric Ireland, said the new reforms are aimed at helping consumers understand what their power consumption is.
