SSE Airtricity reduces NI electricity prices from 11 January 2016

SSE Airtricity, Northern Ireland’s second largest electricity provider, is reducing its standard home electricity prices in Northern Ireland from 11 January 2016.

This is the second such price cut by SSE Airtricity for home electricity customers in Northern Ireland in 12 months and means SSE Airtricity customers are saving over £60† on average in their annual electricity costs compared with this time last year.

Customers using 24hr meters will see their home electricity price reduce by 1.3% on average while customers using Economy 7 meters will see the price of their home electricity reduce by 0.8%.

The reductions will apply to all of SSE Airtricity’s 195,000* home electricity customers in Northern Ireland including those on introductory switching discounts. New home electricity customers switching to SSE Airtricity from other providers will also benefit.

The move follows a review by the company of its costs associated with energy supply.
