Proud to be Northern Ireland's largest provider of renewable energy.


Our energy sources

At SSE Airtricity , we're proud to be Northern Ireland's largest provider of renewable energy.

As well as supplying greener energy to more businesses than any other supplier in Northern Ireland, 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.

In Northern Ireland alone, we generate over 120MW of clean, green energy at our wind farms, with a further 131MW in construction or planning.

Our future plans include a £150 million wind farm at Doraville in Co. Tyrone, which could generate another 115MW of green electricity with the potential to power around 100,000 homes in Northern Ireland.

In addition to the renewable energy offtake from SSE plc’s fleet of wind farms, SSE Airtricity has Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with other generators for over 300MW of wind and solar power, including 46MW from the largest solar farm on the island – Bann Road at Rasharkin, Co Antrim.

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

 

† Projected generation and homes powered calculation (103,093 homes) based on typical annual consumption of 3,200kWh (Ofgem, May 2015) and 1 year average recorded capacity factor of SSE wind farms operating in Northern Ireland, April 2015-March 2016.
