ESB ecars Minimum Account Balance

We recently covered a price increase story from the ESB for electric vehicle owners where the minimum charge cost had risen. Well, following this previous correspondence regarding a change to the minimum account balance required to start a charge, a number of drivers experienced difficulties charging due to the minimum balance increasing from €/£5 to €/£20.

In response to customer feedback, the ESB have stated this will revert to €/£5. This change will come into effect immediately and they would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused. To reflect this, the pricing terms are available at

If you do have any further feedback, it is important to get in touch with the ESB as they continue to implement improvements to the public charging network. The easiest way to do this is by emailing or phone 00353 1 258 3799 (Republic of Ireland) or 0044 345 601 8303 (Northern Ireland).
