Community Support Fund

When we develop or expand our grid, this work will affect communities near new transmission lines. In some locations, and to some observers, electricity transmission lines have a visual impact on the landscape. Particularly in residential areas, they can seem intrusive when first built.

This is why, in January 2014, EirGrid developed a Community Support Fund. We introduced this after a consultation process where we listened to public feedback.

We’re building a more efficient, more effective and more economic electricity network. The Community Support Fund recognises that this can only happen when we work closely with you.

For all the information you need, you can download our Community Support Fund brochure.

Recently, we invited applications for our Mullingar-Kinnegad 110 kV Project fund. The deadline for applications to this fund has now closed. However, you can download the information leaflet which provided information on this fund here.

You will find information on upcoming and open funds on this page so check back again soon.

Proximity Payments

In some locations, and to some observers, electricity transmission lines have a visual impact on the landscape. Particularly in residential areas, they can seem intrusive when first built. This is why, in January 2014, EirGrid developed a system of Proximity Payments. We introduced these after a consultation process where we listened to public feedback. We’re building a more efficient, more effective and more economic electricity network – but we can’t do this without you.

We are running a pilot study as part of the Mullingar Reinforcement project. If this affects you, please download the application form here. Our address can be found on the contact page.
