Who we are

At SSE Airtricity, we’ve been harnessing our greatest natural resource for the past 25 years and are proud to be Ireland’s largest provider of 100% green energy^ to homes and businesses.

SSE Airtricity is the largest generator of wind power in Ireland, with an operational portfolio of 28 onshore wind farms totaling a combined generation capacity of over 700MW. The portfolio also includes the 174MW Galway Wind Park, Ireland’s largest wind farm which is co-owned with Greencoat Renewables. This makes SSE the largest generator and provider of renewable energy in the all-island Single Electricity Market. 

We are committed to providing a wide range of green energy solutions to customers, including our EV infrastructure, SolarPV and our award winning Generation Green Home Upgrade programme, to support customers on the path to achieving net zero.

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.
