SSE Airtricity - proud to be Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy

It’s easy to take our country for granted, which is why we believe in giving something back.

At SSE Airtricity we’re proud to be Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy^.

In 2020, all of the electricity we supplied to our home and business customers was from renewable energy sourced by SSE Airtricity, abating over 131,000 tonnes of harmful CO2 emissions every month.^^

As well as supplying 100% green energy to more Irish homes and businesses than any other supplier, we’re also proud to be the largest generator of wind power in Ireland. SSE’s operational portfolio of 28 onshore wind farms has a combined generation capacity of over 700MW, making SSE the largest generator and provider of renewable energy in the all-island Single Electricity Market. This portfolio includes the 174MW Galway Wind Park, Ireland’s largest wind farm which is co-owned with Greencoat Renewables.

Together, we can power the change to a greener Ireland.
