How do I top up my Pinergy Smart Account?

Please ensure that you only purchase credit via the Pinergy Smart App or a Payzone Approved outlet.

How will I know how much credit I have left?

The home screen of your Pinergy Smart App shows your balance at a glance. It is the quickest and simplest way to view to your balance daily.

How do I ensure my account is in credit?

To ensure you account is always in credit, download the Pinergy Smart App and set up the automatic top up to ensure that your credit does not run out. In the unlikely event that you run out of credit, including all Emergency and Friendly Credit you may lose power in your home.

What happens if I am low on credit and I am unable to top up immediately?

Emergency Credit

If you are unable to top up immediately and you are low on credit you can avail of €10 Emergency Credit. To activate Emergency Credit press 7 on the keypad of your Smart Meter ‘EC Offer’ will appear in the display, press A to accept.

Don’t forget if you top up whilst in Emergency Credit you need to fully repay the Emergency Credit that you have used and make sure you top up to bring you account into credit balance of at least €2.

Friendly Credit

If your Emergency Credit runs out between 5pm – 9am on week days or 5pm Friday – 9am Monday, our Friendly Credit will be applied. We’ve got fixed public holidays covered too. To give you even more peace of mind, we guarantee your supply will not be turned off on the following key holiday dates:

  • New Years Day (1 Jan)
  • St Patrick’s Day (Mar 17)
  • Christmas Eve (Dec 24)
  • Christmas Day (Dec 25)
  • St Stephens Day (Dec 26)
  • New Year’s Eve (Dec 31)

If you have used your Emergency Credit and Friendly Credit, the next time you buy electricity you must pay these balances off. As each needs a minimum of €2 to work, you’ll need to factor this in too.

Is Pinergy more expensive?

Traditional Energy Suppliers only provide you a Bill every month or two. It is very hard to understand your typical consumption and costs.

With Pinergy we are able to give you insights into how you are using energy in your home every 30 minutes, which means you can reduce your consumption and cost whilst taking control through our App.
