The Consumer Council welcomes the outcome of the Utility Regulator investigation into SSE Airtricity

The Consumer Council welcomes the publication of the Utility Regulator’s conclusion following its investigation into SSE Airtricity Energy Supply Ltd and SSE Airtricity Gas Supply Ltd.

Paulino Garcia, Head of Energy Policy at The Consumer Council, said; “We welcome the Utility Regulator’s conclusion to its investigation into SSE Airtricity’s compliance with a number of its licence obligations and standards of performance. This shows that a clear and transparent approach to enforcement should provide consumers with appropriate protection as well as acting as a strong deterrent to any mispractice by the gas and electricity industry.”

Paulino added, “We encourage the Utility Regulator to continue to monitor the industry to ensure it complies with its obligations to consumers.”
