ESB to refund 72 customers before Christmas.

72 Kerry customers will receive 300 euro refunds from the esb before Christmas. These refunds are to make up for overcharging on flat rates fees. Spokesman for the ESB Kevin McDermott says the overcharging came about due to the unprecedented growth in housing in recent years. Areas that were once classified as rural are now urban, and those living in the newly classified areas that were paying the extra 5 euro per billing period will receive a refund. Mr McDermott says the number of customers affected is not significant when compared to the customer base.
