SSE Airtricity announces a 7% price decrease for electricity

SSE Airtricity, Northern Ireland’s second largest electricity supplier, has announced a price decrease of 7% for their electricity customers. 

This decrease will be effective from 1 November 2023 and will see around £95 savings for a typical customer with a standard rate credit meter and around £93 savings for a typical customer with a standard rate keypad meter. 

Raymond Gormley, our Head of Energy Policy said: “This price decrease is welcome news given the cost of living pressures many households in Northern Ireland continue to experience.

"Despite this announcement electricity prices remain significantly higher than the pre-pandemic norm. Similarly, natural gas prices remain high, heating oil prices have increased recently and petrol and diesel prices are rising at the pumps. For these reasons we continue to advocate for further support for Northern Ireland consumers in the winter ahead.

"We urge anyone who is struggling to pay their energy bills or top-up their meters to contact their supplier directly for help and support.

"Now that there is some change in electricity prices, we encourage consumers to use our free online Energy Price Comparison Tool to check that they are on the best deal or if they could save money by switching supplier, billing method or tariff.

"Information on energy efficiency, and an overview of all financial help, grants and schemes available to help with high energy costs can be found here."
