What is the government electricity payment?

A scheme has been approved by the government to credit all residential electricity customers with €176.22 (excl. VAT). We've applied the government credit to all residential electricity accounts. 

Customers with an online account will be able to see the payment in the 'Bills and Transactions' tab on their account dashboard. If you don’t have an online account, you can register here. Customers can also see the payment on their next bill after the credit has been applied.

This is a once-off, exceptional payment. This measure has been introduced to offset the impact of rising energy costs. For more information, see gov.ie
