To date, more than 250,000 meters have been upgraded across the country. The programme began in Counties Laois, Kildare and Cork (Bandon) in Autumn 2019 and extended to parts of Dublin, Wicklow, Louth and Meath in 2020. The roll-out will continue on a phased basis and will extend to areas in counties Limerick, Sligo and Leitrim in the coming months. We aim to replace all 2.4 meters by the end of 2024.
ESB Networks will give all customers notice when they are rolling out the meters in their respective regions.
In addition, all new general domestic 24-hour connections and meter replacements for homes and businesses will receive a smart meter.
