Here are some of the simple ways to check if the electricity is "on" or "off" in your home

  • Check your lights and see if they work
  • Plug something into a number of sockets and see if there is a power source
  • Ensure that the main switch at your distribution board (or Fuse board) is in the "on" position
  • Make sure the home is actually connected and a meter is installed (Meter position is usually located in an Outside Box, Hall-way or Under Stairs

5. How do I know if the gas supply is on or off?

The gas supply to your meter is controlled by an isolation valve. The valve is fitted immediately up stream of the gas meter. Current regulations require that the operation of the isolation valve from fully "on" to fully "off" must be by a quarter turn of an easily operated handle, clearly marked to show the "off" position . The valve is in the "off" position when it is at a right angle to the pipe. If the natural gas shut off valve is hard to reach or will not operate, call Gas Networks Ireland on 1850 200 694.

6. I moved into a new home, where do I find my MPRN/GPRN?

The MPRN/GPRN is located on the top right hand corner of a past bill. If you are either moving into a new home or renting a new home, a previous bill is usually held by a previous tenant or the landlord. If you are moving into a house or apartment that has just been built please contact ESB Networks on 1850 372 757 to verify your MPRN, or Gas Networks Ireland on 1850 200 694 to verify your GPRN.

Please complete our move in form within 21 days of your move. This is to ensure that your first bill is accurate.
