How much is this programme costing?

The replacement of over 2 million electricity meters with the next generation electricity meter over a six-year period will cost some €1.2bn.

Like other infrastructure upgrades, the cost of the meter upgrade will be recouped over time in charges paid for use of the electricity network and so there is no up-front charge to have a smart meter installed.

The Commission for Regulation of Utilities has done extensive analysis of the plan and is satisfied that the investment involved represents value for money
