Meath County Council is hosting an information event at Buvinda House where ESB Networks will be available to answer your questions on the day and provide a brief overview of the programme
- Date: Tuesday, October 22nd 2019
- Venue: Meath County Council Offices, Buvinda House, Navan
- Time: 4pm – 7pm
- RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Navan and surroundings areas in Co. Meath are amongst the first areas for the rollout of these smart electricity meters by ESB Networks.
Smart meters provide customers with better information which will enable them to reduce their energy usage, carbon footprint and will, over time, significantly reduce the need for estimated bills.
Smart meters will also enable the move to a low-carbon electricity network, the development of smart grids, local renewable generation and microgeneration and support the electrification of heat and transport. From 2021, it is also planned that electricity supply companies will provide new products and services to customers with smart meters and in the future, functionality within the meter will also allow ESB Networks to find faults quicker and manage the meters more efficiently.
The areas in County Meath which will be targeted first in the New Year, include:
- Rath Cairn
ESB Networks plan to deliver 250,000 meters nationally by the end of 2020 and approximately 500,000 meters in each of the four subsequent years.
