Prepayment meter

At the request of a gas supplier, Gas Networks Ireland can install a prepay meter, also known as a gas card meter.

These meters allow customers to purchase an amount of gas credit on a gas card.

The card is inserted into the meter and the credit is then transferred directly from the card to the meter.

Our Prepayment meter guide (PDF 441KB) provides more information on:

  • Purchasing credit
  • Using your gascard
  • Meter information
  • Emergency credit
  • Standing charge
  • Replacing your gascard
  • Gas card issues
