My electricity bill is included in my rent, will I still get the credit?

(Advised from the Commission for Regulation of Utilities: Electricity Costs Emergency Benefit Scheme Guidance Document)

For operational reasons the scheme can only credit the domestic electricity account holder.

The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications advise as follows:

The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications is working with the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, and the Residentials Tenancies Board (RTB) to publicise and increase awareness of the Electricity Costs Emergency Benefit Scheme to ensure those in rented accommodation who hold the electricity account receive benefit from the payment. In the event that a dispute should arise, there are existing dispute resolution mechanisms provided by the RTB to landlords and tenants. The RTB encourages parties to engage with its mediation service where agreements are reached in over 70% of cases.
