Since 2008, SSE has invested over €2.5 billion in the development of Ireland’s sustainable energy infrastructure, helping to green our economy and secure our energy future.
We own and operates over 2,000MW of generation capacity on the island of Ireland, with 740MW coming from our 29 onshore wind farms. This makes SSE the largest generator of renewable energy in the all-island Single Electricity Market.
Our retail arm in Ireland and Northern Ireland, SSE Airtricity, is the second largest energy supplier on the island, providing greener electricity, natural gas and essential services to home and business customers.
Through SSE Airtricity Utility Solutions, we are also Ireland’s leading public lighting contractor, maintaining around 250,000 street lights.
At SSE, we're proud to make a difference. Our job is to provide the energy people need in a reliable and sustainable way. We're involved in producing, distributing and supplying electricity and gas, as well as other energy-related services.
SSE's strategy is to deliver the efficient operation of, and investment in, a balanced range of economically-regulated and market-based businesses in energy production, storage, transmission, distribution, supply and related services in the energy markets in Great Britain and Ireland.
Northern Ireland’s leading low carbon energy generator, SSE Renewables, has launched a new education and training programme funded from local wind energy to support employability in the mid Ulster area, in partnership with the Workspace Group.
