Proud to be Ireland’s largest provider of wind power


Our energy sources

At SSE Airtricity, we’re proud to be Ireland’s largest provider of 100% renewable power*.

As well as supplying 100% green energy to more Irish businesses than any other supplier, our parent company, SSE plc, is the largest generator of wind power in the all-island Single Electricity Market (SEM). We currently generate 580MW of renewable energy at our 26 wind farms across the island of Ireland.

We’re also investing in new green energy generation to help protect Ireland’s energy for future generations. We’re currently building the 169MW Galway Wind Park in partnership with Coillte which, when completed in 2017, will become Ireland’s largest onshore wind farm.
