When will I receive the government electricity credit?

A scheme was approved by the government to credit all eligible residential electricity customers with €450, in three €150 (incl. VAT) instalments. 

We've applied the third credit to customer's accounts, as of 8 March 2024.

Customers with an online account will be able to see the credit 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 credit on their next bill after the credit has been applied.

Pay As You Go customers

When your credit is available, Bord Gáis Energy will send you an SMS. If we don't have your mobile number, we'll send you a letter. After you receive your SMS/letter, you'll then be required to top up your PAYG meter by a minimum of €10. Click here for more information on how to receive your credit.
