At SSE Airtricity we’re proud to be Northern Ireland's largest provider of renewable energy.
Just over one-third of the electricity we supply to you is generated from green sources such as wind and solar power. In 2016, the green energy sourced by SSE Airtricity powered the equivalent of over 200,000* homes in Northern Ireland, significantly abating over 250,000 tonnes^ of harmful CO2 emissions.
We currently generate over 140MW of renewable energy at our wind farms in Northern Ireland, including green energy from largest wind farm in the region, Slieve Kirk Wind Park in Co. Derry-Londonderry. The renewable we generate is enough to power over 120,0001 homes. We also have plans for a £150million wind farm at Doraville in Co. Tyrone, which could generate another 119MW of green electricity with the potential to power around 100,000 homes across the province.
