5 May, 2020 – Pinergy, the smart energy provider, is pleased to welcome the introduction of a new Energy Support Scheme for SME businesses from the Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU). The CRU’s ‘Supply Suspension Scheme’ enables all ‘non-essential’ SME businesses that have been forced to close temporarily due to the Covid-19 pandemic, to avoid any estimated consumption charges on their bill, that in the absence of actual meter readings would ordinarily arise and become payable.  In addition, network capacity charges will be lowered to zero, while standing charges will be lowered by €7.97 and €74.72 per month (excl. VAT) for DG5 and DG6 meter types respectively, for up to 90 days as and from 1 May, 2020.

Enda Gunnell, CEO at Pinergy says, “We at Pinergy are fully aware of the challenging times many of our SME customers now face in the current Covid-19 crisis. As part of our ongoing support services, we are very happy to support this new initiative from the CRU. We hope this supply suspension scheme will help relieve some of the stress faced by our SME customers during this difficult period.”


To avail of the scheme, impacted Pinergy SME business customers are advised to register on the Pinergy website at https://pinergy.ie/customer-info/sme
