Airtricity is Ireland’s fastest-growing, greenest and largest independent energy provider, supplying over 625,000 domestic and commercial gas, electricity and home energy services customers in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Airtricity is the cheapest supplier of home electricity and dual fuel home energy (gas and electricity) in the Republic of Ireland. Airtricity Home Energy Services, its dedicated Boiler & Home Services Division, is Airtricity’s newest business and carried out over 20,000 gas boiler services last year.
At Airtricity we believe in energy made better. Almost one quarter (24%) of the electricity Airtricity supplies to its customers is generated from renewable sources – twice that of its nearest commercial competitor and twice that of the total amount of renewables generated on an All Island basis. The generation of the electricity supplied to all Airtricity customers results in 31% less CO2 emissions per MWh than the energy supplied to the average customer on the island of Ireland.
Airtricity is powered by SSE with renewable energy from the largest wind generation portfolio on the island of Ireland. Over 500MW of renewable energy from 25 wind farms powers Airtricity’s greener electricity supply – including power from Ireland’s largest wind farm, the 84MW Meentycat Wind Farm in Co. Donegal.
Airtricity is a wholly-owned division of SSE plc, the broadest-based energy utility in the UK, with interests and experience in electricity and gas production, distribution, supply and services. The Top 40 FTSE-listed company has over 11,000MW of electricity generation, distributes electricity to 3.5 million homes and businesses and supplies electricity, gas and related services to around 10 million customers.
