You will need three key pieces of information to set up your gas and electricity:
Recent meter reading: Taking a meter reading is very easy. Simply locate your meters for gas and electricity (there will be a separate one for each utility), read the number on the dial from left to right and ignore any digits in red. Simple!
MPRN GPRN: Your MPRN is an 11 digit meter point reference number for your electricity and your GPRN is a seven digit gas point reference number. You can find out what both of these numbers are by calling ESB Networks and Gas Networks Ireland respectively.
