Meter Readings

What do I need to know about my meter?

Your electricity meter records how many units of electricity you use. This is measured in Kilowatt Hours which is displayed as kWh. 

Your tariff depends on the type of meter installed in your premises. For example, 24-hour meter (best for mixed retail, offices and premises with 9am – 5pm operating hours), Day & Night meter (best for food retail, premises with storage heating or lots of fridges or freezers).  

Who Reads My Electricity Meter?

ESB Networks aim to call out up to 4 times a year to obtain a meter reading (all depending if they can gain access to your meter). 

If the reader is unable to gain access to the meter, they will leave a post card advising you they called and to submit your own meter reading within 24 hours otherwise an estimate reading will be used. 

Estimated readings are calculated based on the last actual meter reading and are usually accurate. We would encourage all customers to submit meter readings regularly to avoid any over/under estimated bills. 

If you have received an estimated bill and it's not accurate, please contact the Business Energy Team with your own meter readings to apply them to your account and re-bill if required. 

Can I read my own electricity meter?

Yes, you can. For help reading your meter please visit ESB Networks' website for step-by-step instructions on how to read your electricity meter.
