Electricity prices have been raised after the quake, with some customers paying more than they were last year.
The cost of a home in Dublin will increase by €10,000 on top of the increase that applies to those who have already paid the bill, as part of the government’s cost recovery plan.
The new rises will come into effect from January 1.
“The government has committed to raising electricity prices by an average of €10 per month, on average, over the next four years,” the Department of the Environment said in a statement.
“This is in addition to the increase in the average price for electricity that was announced in June.
Electricity prices will also rise on average by an additional €3 per month over the first five years of the plan.”
Consumers have until July 31 to adjust their bills, with the increase applied retroactively.
The Government said it is committed to providing assistance to people affected by the earthquake.
“People who have paid their bills over the past four years will be able to take advantage of the higher electricity rates if they do not wish to do so,” the statement said.
The Irish government also said it will offer help to those impacted by the quake and that it will provide more help to people who were unable to pay their bills due to the earthquake, as it is able.
The earthquake has already left at least three people dead.
The number of Irish people affected has risen from more than 1,500 to 2,200.
