Your chance to take part in ESB trial

THE QUANDARY of having left the immersion heater on will be a thing of the past for 50 lucky people living on the Dingle Peninsula who will get to trial new smart water-heating technology in the new year.

ESB Networks is looking for 50 volunteers to trial the new technology that will be installed in their homes, free of charge, and which they can operate remotely using their mobile phone.

It’s all part of a major national pilot project in Dingle where ESB Networks is deploying a range of technologies to ‘future proof’ the electricity network. The findings of the project will inform ESB Networks on how to deliver an electricity network to facilitate Ireland’s transition to a low-carbon future.
