You can’t transfer the SSE Airtricity account for your rental property into your tenants’ names, for data protection reasons. Your tenants will have to contact us directly to set up an SSE Airtricity account.
If the account is currently in your name or the name of a previous tenant, it must be closed and any outstanding balance paid off. Find out what details you need to supply to close the account.
Outstanding credit balances
If your account is in credit when you close it, the credit will be refunded to you. You will need to call us to let us know how you wish to receive this refund (i.e., cheque or EFT)
Let us know who’s moving in
When you’re closing your account, you should supply contact details for your new tenants. It’s important to let us know who is taking over the account or your rental property may be disconnected and you will then have to pay both disconnection and reconnection charges.
