Hi we have a new smart meter , is is possible to enable night rate on this without having to swap out the meter ?

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,

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 .

Which meter is not capable of this? I am with Energia and they said I am able to switch to one of their Smart plans which has night rates. I got my new meter around 6 months ago

this is what I was informed by chat support and telephone support by Electric Ireland , I forgot to come back to this thread to inform people of this , 

I did not actually get this confirmed until a few weeks ago , crazy I know but the whole point of smart meters was to be able to offer different tariffs , I knew this but it took until electric ireland advertised the new tariffs that someone from electric ireland confirmed this  to me , any way i am not happily connected to the Home Electric + Nightboost
