    Hi Tony, 

    Thank you for getting in touch. 

    If you're an Electric Ireland customer, we recommend contacting the Smart Service team on 1800 372 372. They will be able to advise you what is involved. 

    If you have any other questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Kind regards, 
    Aoife

    just an update on this , the new smart meters that esb networks are installing are not capable of night rate electricity , the meter would need to be swapped out for an older type digital meter , they are waiting on new type smart meters which will be capable of this .
