€100 credit for domestic electricity users

16 December 2021

The Government of Ireland has announced a scheme to credit every domestic electricity customers’ account with €100 during 2022, due to the rising costs of domestic electricity supply across the market.

This credit will be applied to both domestic Pay As You Go (PAYG) and bill pay electricity accounts.

The Government plans to introduce legislation early in 2022 to underpin this Scheme. The exact mechanism as to how the payment will be applied is currently being finalised and will be announced in the new year. However, it will be automatic and will apply to all customers.

At Pinergy, we have started planning how the credit will be applied to our customers. When we have more details on the Scheme from Government and Regulators, we will communicate directly with our customers on when and how the €100 will be applied.
