Our renewable electricity

Green electricity straight from our UK wind farms

Not all green energy is equal. And not all energy suppliers are the same. We’re different because all our 100% renewable electricity comes from SSE’s own UK hydro plants and wind farms.1 And we’re building lots more – clean, renewable energy generation to help the UK reach net zero.

Building the world’s largest offshore wind farm

Wind farm at sea
SSE is currently working with Total to build Seagreen, destined to supply 1.6 million UK homes with clean renewable power. When completed in 2022/23, Seagreen will inherit the title of Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm from Beatrice.

One turn of its massive turbines can power a UK household for two days. When complete, it should supply 6 million homes in the UK with clean, renewable electricity.

That’s Dogger Bank, destined to be the world’s largest offshore wind farm. And the SSE Group is building it with partners Equinor and Eni off the coast of Scotland. We’re also developing Seagreen, set to be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm, and Viking, one of Europe’s most productive onshore wind farms on the Shetland Islands.

As the UK and Ireland’s largest renewable electricity generator, the SSE Group plans to treble its renewable electricity output to 30TWh by 2030, investing £7.5bn in renewables up to 2025. And that’s just the beginning.

No one in the world is leading development of more offshore wind businesses than we are right now. So join us and help us build for net zero – for us and the next generation.

Green power, zero carbon – for businesses of all sizes

At SSE Energy Solutions, we’re on a mission to bring SSE’s clean, green electricity to all businesses in the UK. So you can cut your carbon footprint, however big or small.

If you’re a small business, choose a fixed-price energy plan and you’ll get our 100% renewable electricity included.1

For larger businesses on flexible contracts, you have a range of options: from our standard SSE Green Electricity to SSE Corporate Power Purchase Agreement – a simple way to buy the power you need direct from a wind farm, short or long term.

All our green electricity is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs). And with independent verification by EcoAct, an Atos company, it’s easy to report zero carbon emissions for electricity.
