Government Electricity Payment

On Friday December 10th, the Government announced that they plan to grant a once-off €100 electricity credit for every household in the Republic of Ireland in early 2022.

This €100 electricity credit will apply to all domestic customers and will be automatically applied to all electricity customer accounts.

At Electric Ireland we are eager to keep our customers informed, we are developing our plans in accordance with the information provided by the Government and regulatory bodies. This proposal requires new legislation which the government is hoping to quickly progress through the Oireachtas to ensure they can provide the credits early in the new year. Therefore, further information is required before we can definitively inform our customers on exactly how and when this credit will be applied.
