What data is collected by my meter and how is it used?

Your smart meter will record details of your consumption of electricity. Each day, ESB Networks will collect data on the total amount of electricity consumed over the previous 24-hour period. This data will be used to provide information to support customer billing, customers switching suppliers and customers moving premises.

The meter will also collect a more detailed breakdown of your electricity consumed e.g. usage every 30 minutes. However, this information will only be shared with your supplier if you have given your consent, as they develop and offer new smart services which require this data. To make sure the meter is working properly, ESB Networks will also collect non personal data about the meter itself.
