SSE Airtricity announce electricity price drop

SSE Airtricity have announced a price decrease for their electricity customers in Northern Ireland.

This will be welcome as many of us continue to spend more time at home – so at a time of year when energy use tends to drop we have actually seen it increase. Therefore, a 5.1% decrease in electricity prices will be viewed as good news.


What does the price drop mean for customers?

SSE Airtricity have around 167k electricity customers, around 20% of the market, who will now benefit from this latest price decrease.

The price change will come into effect from 1st August 2020. It will mean a saving of almost £33 for a typical customer on SSE’s Smartsaver standard*. To see what difference this can make to your bill compare electricity prices with
