All Understanding Your Bill topics

Do the bills show meter readings?

Yes, on the back of your bill there is a section called ‘Usage Details’ which contains all of the meter readings during your billing period.

The meter readings will be labelled as:

  • Actual (A) – ESB Networks (electricity) or Bord Gáis (gas) visited your house and read your meter. This happens 4 times a year.
  • Estimated (E) – if we don’t receive a reading we estimate your usage based on your past actual readings and average daily energy use for this time of year.
  • Customer (C) – a meter reading you submitted.


You don’t have to submit meter readings – but your bills will be more accurate if you do.
