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.
On Saturday Ireland will head to the polls at the end of an unpredictable election campaign. Whilst the vote count will take some days, the process of forming the new government could take a good deal longer, with parties needing to negotiate priorities and key policies for the next 5 years.
SSE Airtricity, Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green electricity, has presented €246,959 to community groups close to the Tournafulla, Rathcahill, Dromada, and Athea wind farms in West Limerick, and Lenamore Wind Farm in North Kerry.
