Do I need to do anything? 

No, you don't need to register or sign up or contact us in any way to receive this credit. You don't need to buy a Top Up to get the €200 Government Electricity Credit or carry out any additional actions, we take care of it for you.

Who is eligible to get the €200 Government Electricity Credit?

Every PrepayPower residential Electricity customer is entitled to receive the €200 Government Electricity Credit. If you were a PrepayPower residential Electricity customer on the 29th March 2022 and have an ESB Networks meter in your property, you'll be receiving the credit. If you are on a commercial tariff, you will not be entitled to the €200 Government Electricity Credit.  Back to Top

Why have I got a longer Top Up code?

Classic Pay customers will receive 2 SMS messages before the 18th of April. Each of them will be a code for €100 Top Up credit. A small number of these codes maybe longer than the standard code. This is simply to put an update on your meter. Back to Top

Do I get a credit for Gas as well?

No. The €200 Government Electricity Credit is only for residential electricity customers in Ireland. Back to Top

Top Tip!

We recommend that you continue to Top Up by small amounts each week after receiving your €200 government electricity credit. This will help you put a bit aside for later in the year when your usage might be higher. Back to Top

How do I know I've got the credit?

Don't worry! If you're a Classic Pay customer, we'll send you a text message before the 18th of April to let you know the Top Up codes that you need to enter. If you're a Smart Pay customer, we'll send you an text message to confirm that the €200 has been automatically added to your balance. Back to Top

How much money am I going to get? 

You're going to get €200 exactly. There are not deductions for VAT or anything else. You will have €200 in Top Up credit. Back to Top

Joined PrepayPower after the 29th March 2022?

If you joined PrepayPower after the 29th March 2022 then you will receive the €200 from your previous supplier in the form of credit off your final bill or as a cheque refund, depending on your supplier. If you had no previous electricity supplier, you will not be entitled to the €200 credit. Back to Top

Do I have to buy a Top Up to get the credit?

No. You don't have to do anything to get the €200 Government Electricity Credit. You don't need to buy a Top Up to get the €200 Government Electricity Credit or carry out any additional actions, we take care of it for you.

I have Sub-Accounts in my property, what happens with them?

As the €200 is being issued per MPRN each sub account is only entitled to a portion of the credit depending on how many PrepayPower meters are connected to the MPRN e.g if there are 4 sub accounts each account would be entitled to €50. However PrepayPower have decided that we will top up each sub account to ensure that they all receive €100 each. Sub accounts will have their €100 credit applied/top up codes sent by April 25th. Back to Top
