In addition to great value electricity and gas supplies, we provide UK businesses of all sizes with services such as mechanical and electrical contracting, multi utility network installation and maintenance, telecommunication connectivity solutions, data centres and much more.
We are the second largest energy supplier in the UK. The key to our success is our 20,000 staff located in over 100 offices throughout the country. It is their broad range of skills and expertise that allow us to offer you such a vast range of services, delivered professionally and efficiently.
Our focus on customer service has earned us numerous awards over the years. We want to maintain our position as the industry leaders in service and central to this is keeping all of our business customer contact centres located in the UK or Ireland.
From our beginnings as suppliers of electricity in the highlands of Scotland and throughout Southern England, we have built on our rich technical heritage and expanded our range of services to become a true multi-utility service provider. Our scope of services includes:
Scottish Hydro has been supplying energy in to homes and businesses in Scotland since 1947 and Southern Electric in England also since 1947. In 1998 the two companies merged and a parent company called Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) was born. Since then we have acquired the SWALEC brand in Wales and Airtricity in Ireland.
We supply around half a million business customers with energy under these brands. All our other business products and services are provided under the SSE brand.
SSE is the UK largest generator of renewable energy. This includes over 1450MW of hydro generation and 840MW of wind capacity and we have many more onshore and offshore wind farms under development. We use our skills and experience to help our business customers keep their electrical and mechanical infrastructure operating safely and at optimum efficiency. We offer our customers the opportunity to capitalise on local generation solutions. We’re also working hard to research and develop newer technology to ensure we continue to lead the way in providing sustainable solutions for energy.
