Who Is Waterpower?

A green lightbulb

Waterpower works in three distinct areas with renewable energy:

  1. As a supplier, both for commercial and domestic use.
  2. As a purchaser of excess renewable energy to feed their network.
  3. As a consultant for those interested in having their own renewable energy project.

Based in Kanturk, County Cork, Waterpower started in 2003, creating power plants that use the water, wind, solar, and biomass to distribute energy across Ireland.

Waterpower is 100% Irish owned and currently has seven employees to provide this green energy.

What Are the Waterpower Ireland Electricity Rates and Tariffs?

Calculations of discounts are against the Waterpower standard tariff. Prices are updated as of October 2021 and include the VAT. Estimated Annual Bill (EAB) amounts use the national annual average kWh electricity usage of 4,200 kWh.

Waterpower does not offer any other tariff other than a standard tariff.

We look at the various options below to make it easier to compare Waterpower rates with the best tariffs from other providers in Ireland.

What Are the Waterpower Ireland Standard Tariffs?

Waterpower’s standard electricity tariff comes with no discounts. All energy suppliers in Ireland provide standard tariffs. Usually, it is a tariff you default to when you are out of contract and are no longer entitled to discounts.

Standard tariffs can be interesting for people who do not want to be locked into anything long term as they carry no exit fees and no contract duration. Although they are obviously more expensive, you get the flexibility to change to another provider or contract.

To benefit from these tariffs, your home needs to have a smart meter. You will also need to receive a confirmation from ESB Network, Ireland’s electricity distributor, that the CTF value aligns with the provision of Interval Data of your smart meter.

Waterpower divides the smart meter hours into the following times:

  • Day rate — from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Night rate — from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
  • Peak rate — from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

For the Waterpower smart meters plans, post billing is not an option. You will need to register for direct debit payments to get their best available rates.

Warning It is important to know that you cannot go back to a non-smart tariff once you change to a smart tariff.
