Better Energy Communities Scheme measures

Energy Efficiency Incentive

In association with Electric Ireland and KORE, Eco-snug can help you with your application.

KORE and Electric Ireland will process the energy credits you’re owed after completing your insulation upgrades and deduct the amount from your next electricity or gas bill. If you’re eligible for a cash grant from SEAI you’ll receive this separately.

How Does the Energy Efficiency Incentive Work?

To qualify for the Electric Ireland Energy Efficiency Incentive you must own a house built before 2006. You must also be an Electric Ireland customer. If you are with another provider you can easily switch to Electric Ireland to avail of this offer. You’re also entitled to any new customer promotions Electric Ireland may be offering at the time you switch!

This Incentive may also be combined with SEAI’s Better Energy Homes Scheme. This Scheme offers cash grants on qualifying measures. To avail of the Better Energy Homes Scheme you must own a home built before 2006 and you must not have participated in the Scheme in the past. If you qualify for both offers you’ll receive a discount on your electricity or gas bill, plus cash back from SEAI on a range of measures. The amount you pay out of pocket will be significantly reduced!
