Payment Information

Payment Method


This is a pre-payment tariff which means you will not receive a bill, you simply top up your electricity meter as you need to, much like a pay-as-you-go mobile phone.

Security Deposit

All new customers or those who have not held an account within the past two years must either:

  • Sign up for Direct Debit
  • Or pay a security deposit of €300
  • Or take Smarter PAYG (pay as you go) electricity

When you call to set up your account, you will be registered and will then have 14 days to sign up for Direct Debit or pay the security deposit.
