The programme aims to make it easier for customers to manage their energy use, save money and lower their carbon footprint.
Under the terms of the agreement, Trilliant and its partner, Holley Technology Ltd., will be responsible for supplying ESB Networks with Three Phase meters including implementation, testing, maintenance and support for the meters.

“Our meter replacement programme is helping to ensure a greener, more sustainable Ireland,” said Carmel O’Connor, Smart Metering Project Manager, at ESB Networks. “We’re delighted to partner with Trilliant in this next phase of our deployment plan, which will ultimately provide homeowners and businesses with increased choice, and better and more accessible information about their energy consumption.”
