Power Off & Save

Save money by better managing your electricity use

Power Off and Save is a new pilot programme that will reward customers who agree to reduce their energy use when electricity demand is high. EirGrid have developed the Power Off and Save programme, in partnership with Electric Ireland, who were awarded the contract to provide the service to EirGrid based on the open tender competition, in late 2015.

The Power Off and Save programme will involve 1,500 residential customers over an 18 month-period. Those who sign up will be asked to switch off appliances for about 30 minutes on ten occasions. Customers will be rewarded with up to €100 off their bill.

A report on the progress made on this programme since May 2016, can be read here.
