Reduce your use

With the ongoing war in Ukraine affecting the cost of energy, many of us are facing a challenging winter.

The government are asking people, where safe and possible to do so, to turn their thermostat down and consider when they use larger appliances.

The Government of Ireland are aware that there are people we need to ensure stay warm and well this winter. That is why we are partnering with CRU, MABS, ALONE and SEAI, and have published a Booklet with details and advice for everyone.

Through Budget ’23, Government are already introducing a range of supports to lessen the financial impact on families, households and businesses.

Supports available to help those most affected by rising energy costs:

  • €600 Electricity Credit available to all Irish households
  • up to €10,000 per company, per month with the Temporary Business Energy Support Scheme
  • €700 - €8000 grants available for attic and cavity wall insulation depending on the upgrades selected
  • 37,000 home energy upgrades including 6,000 free upgrades under the SEAI Energy Poverty Scheme
  • €64 estimated savings through the extension of VAT reduction on energy bills
  • €89 estimated savings from the PSO Levy Reduction

There are a range of organisations ready to help you stay warm and well this winter.
