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 2015, all of the electricity we supplied to our home and business customers (5.3 TWh˄) was from 100% green energy sourced by SSE Airtricity, significantly abating over 2 million tonnes† of harmful Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions on the island.

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. The green energy generated by SSE Airtricity at our 25 wind farms across the island powers almost 300,000† Irish homes.

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

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