Apply for a new connection
You must apply to ESB Networks for a new electricity connection if:
- your home has never been connected to the network before
- it has been disconnected for more than two years

Choose an electricity supplier
ESB Networks don't supply your electricity. You must choose an electricity supplier and set up your account before ESB Networks connect you.
You can choose an electricity supplier from our list of all energy suppliers.
Cost to connect
Connection costs depend on a number of factors. For reconnections following disconnection the costs will vary depending on whether your property has been disconnected for more or less than 2 years. For a quotation contact ESB Networks on 1850 372 757.
