Electric Ireland is aware of a billing issue which has affected a small proportion of our electricity and gas customers. This issue occurred when a customer’s unit rate discount changed. This has resulted in some customers being charged their previous unit rate for longer than expected. Some customers will have paid more for their energy than they should, while some customers paid less than they should have.
We have resolved this issue, ensuring it will not occur again.
We will be communicating with all customers who paid more for their energy than they should have, by email or letter. We will refund any customers who were charged more for their energy than they should have been. For customers who paid less for their energy than they should have, we are not looking to recoup this cost.
We wish to apologise to any customers affected.
