SSE in Ireland
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.
- What we do
Providing the energy people need
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.
- Being Responsible
Doing the right thing
Decent companies make sure they abide by the law and do no harm to the communities they serve. Responsible companies go further than that.
Not having a negative impact is not enough for the 21st century: customers and communities are rightly demanding more. This is especially true for an energy company.
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.
