Why do I submit a Meter Reading and how do I do it?

04.07.2016 15:59 #1

Meter readings help us to keep your bill as accurate as possible. ESB Networks and Gas Networks Ireland will read your meter up to 4 times a year, so it is good to provide them yourself to ensure your bills are not estimated.

Each read you give makes any estimates smarter and more accurate, so if you happen to miss one read, the estimate will be more in line with your actual usage.

Reading your meter is straightforward but there are different kinds of meters.

  • 24 hour Meter (Standard or Digital)
  • Day/Night Meter (Standard or Digital)
  • Standard/Digital Meter
  • Dial (Clock) Meter
You can find a full guide on how to read the different meter types by checking on our website:

If you can’t access your meter, you can request a meter key online by sending us your email address and SSE Airtricity account number. Once we receive your details we'll send you a free meter key within 14 days.
