Back to Articles

By Chamber Press Office, 01 September 2023

SSE Airtricity has been harnessing our greatest natural resource for the past 25 years, providing cleaner, renewable energy for homes and businesses across the country.

Since 2008 SSE has invested significantly in Ireland, with a total economic contribution of more than €3.8bn to the economy. SSE owns and operates 29 onshore wind farms across the island of Ireland, totalling 809MW, capable of generating enough wind power to power over half a million homes annually, and offsetting over half a billion kilos in carbon emissions.

SSE Airtricity is certified by Business in the Community Ireland to the Business Working Responsibly Mark, the ‘gold standard’ for Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability in Ireland and proudly provides over €1.5m annually in community funds, bringing the total community investment to over €10m so far. The company has approx. 1,000 employees on the island of Ireland and is a certified Living Wage employer.
