Covid 19 update: Our commitment to you

Last Updated: July 2020

At SSE Airtricity, the safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers and the communities we serve will always be our number one priority. Our teams are working hard to maintain our essential services and power to customers all over Ireland.

I’m delighted to say our team have been safely working from their homes which has enabled us to operate as normal and provide the award-winning service that our customers have come to expect from us.

We’re committed to helping our customers and playing our part to help communities get through this crisis together. We’ve reduced our gas and electricity prices and we want our customers to know we’re here if you need us. If you have any concerns about your energy bills, please contact us and we’ll find a resolution together.

The global pandemic has affected us all, but it has also demonstrated only concerted, focused effort can solve a crisis – and that goes for the climate emergency too. We believe this is Generation Green, and by working together and making small changes we can all overcome the challenges that lie ahead.

In the meantime, we’ll continue powering homes and business around Ireland while helping communities enjoy a greener, more sustainable future.

Thank you and stay safe,

Klair Neenan
Managing Director,
