How long will it take to switch to SSE Airtricity?

The length of time it takes to complete your switch depends on:

  • Whether you provide meter readings when you sign up
  • If those meter readings are verified
  • Whether you’re switching to just electricity, or electricity and gas.

However, your registration is usually completed within 2 weeks, and your first SSE Airtricity bill should arrive within 8 to 10 weeks of your sign-up date.
