When does my supply actually change over?
How long it takes to change over your supply will depend on whether or not you submitted a meter reading when you signed up.
If you submitted a meter reading, we first have to verify that reading with either ESB Networks (for electricity) or Bord Gáis Networks (for gas). Once your reading is accepted we can transfer your supply over. This will happen approximately 2 weeks after you sign up for electricity. Once your gas reading is verifed by Bord Gáis Networks, then you can switch gas suppliers within 24 hours.
If you didn’t submit a meter reading, you could have to wait up to 6 weeks for either ESB Networks (for electricity) or Bord Gáis Networks (for gas) to read your meter. After this reading is sent to us your supply will be transferred.
There will be no disruptions to your supply during the changeover.
