Think you have to either switch to them or be an existing customer..

if you have never availed of one of these devices, FOC or discounted from an energy supplier, you might qualify to participate in this trial. They will supply and install their device FOC if you meet their criteria. I didn't as I had purchased a subsidised Climote from EI last year. My brother and sister seem to be eligible thou and are in the process of arranging an installation. Oh and before anyone has a go at me, I am not involved or associated with this company in any way.

Anyone done this? Seems like a good bargain.

Also don't understand how EI would set this up without you signing up with them.

I moved to Electric Ireland recently.

Signed up with their 200 cash back offer and then a week later when the account was fully active I availed of the 130 Nest offer.

The guy on the phone advised me to do it this way for the best deal

Can anyone else confirm that you dont need to be with Electric Ireland to avail of this because the website explicitly states that the offer is for existing customers or those willing to switch to Electric Ireland.

Yes, I just ordered using link in first post and I'm a Bord Gais customer !

I couldn't complete order online because I got an error about installation availability but called the phone number given and was able to complete the order over the phone. Installation booked for 2 weeks time.

Just ordered it there over the phone aswell. Jez this seems far too good to be true. Theyre €230 new and I was quoted €150 to install a few months ago.

I dont see the motivation for Electric Ireland to sell this to non customers.

Have a two zone heating system.. and have a Nest downstairs. Should be no issue in putting a second Nest upstairs, right?
