Councils warning to Electric Ireland

Turning off electricity for public lighting not acceptable

Councils warning to Electric Ireland

Tipperary County Council has warned Electric Ireland that if they shut off the public supply of electricity to housing estates, due to the non-payment of charges on the part of developers, they will face sanction from the local authority under health and safety legislation.

This on-going saga has seen the council intervene and act as intermediary between residents associations and Electric Ireland following a demand for payment on the part of Electric Ireland for electricity supplied for public lighting, treatment plants, pumping stations etc.
