I have a Prepay meter what do I need to do to activate my Government Electricity Credit?

Step 1: From early April, top up your electricity meter by a minimum of €10* to activate your credit. You’ll receive the maximum top up amount of €100** including €90 Electricity Credit (Free Vend). The remaining €110 credit will remain on the top up system until you top up again.

Step 2: When you top up again by a minimum of €10*, you’ll receive a further maximum top up amount of €100** including an additional €90 Electricity Credit (Free Vend).

Step 3: You’ll receive your final €20 Electricity Credit (Free Vend) on your next top up of a minimum of €10*.

* €10 is the minimum top up credit spend.
**The maximum top up credit applied at any one time is €100. You’ll need to purchase a minimum €10 top up to retrieve the maximum credit amount.
Please see below working examples:
