📞 SSE Airtricity Ireland Reviews

Reviewer

Rating

Details

Trustpilot

Poor customer service, long wait times.

Google

⭐⭐

Some positive comments about replying to complaints.

On the customer review site Trustpilot, the supplier has an average review score of just 1.4 of five stars. With just over 369 reviews, 96% of customers gave the company either a "poor" or "bad" rating. Only 4% of customers gave the supplier an "excellent" review score.

The chief complaints raised in the comments regard the supplier's poor customer service. There were also many instances reported of customers having issues with higher than expected prices.

Clearly Airtricity signs up too many customers and then as always have too few Customer Care agents to deal with queries abd complaints. I was waiting for 2 weeks for a call back on two different occasions. Impossible to get through by phone. Extremely poor service - a bit like Eir a few years ago. Avoid until they improve and pay and train staff properly.

Mary Bertelsen on Trustpilot, 06/02/2024

On Google, the reviews are much the same as Trustpilot with several customers leaving comments about the poor customer service they recieved, along with issues surrounding payment and pricing.

If I could give 1 star I would…. Actually shocking company to deal with and will be extremely happy when my contract ends in March … all bills are wrong then they forget to issue bills then charge you for extra weeks because of there mistake!!! Never answer the phone and when they do they have no idea what you are saying to them !! Please stay away and go to another company

How Do I Submit My SSE Airtricity Meter Reading?

To ensure accurate billing, it's best to submit meter readings once a month. Otherwise, you can expect to receive estimated bills. See our complete guide on meter reading if you need help to submit one.

You can submit your SSE Airtricity meter reading in the following ways:

  • Online
    Through your online account, My SSE Airtricity. If you do not have an online account, you will need to register for one first.
  • By phone
    Call customer service at 0818 81 22 20. You should have your account number (which you will find on your bill) on hand when you ring to submit the reading.
  • Through ESB Networks
    You can also give your SSE Airtricity meter reading by contacting ESB Networks at 0800 337 777 or visiting their webpage. The phone number is available 24/7. Don't forget to include your 11-digit MPRN number!

To submit your meter reading for gas, you have two options:

  1. Submit it via your online account.
  2. Contact Gas Networks Ireland. You will need to have your GPRN number on hand if you choose this option.

Caution If you give SSE Airtricity your meter reading more than once on the same day, it may delay the output of your energy bill.

How Can I Top Up My SSE Airtricity Account?

Residential customers cannot opt into a top-up plan unless it's for a debt repayment agreement or they can provide proof of financial hardship. 

If you have an SSE Airtricity prepayment meter because of outstanding debt, you will make your repayments by giving a percentage of the credit you add to the meter each time you top up.

SSE Airtricity FAQ

Who Are SSE Airtricity?

SSE Airtricity is a residential and commercial energy provider in the Republic of Ireland. Originally founded in 1997 as Eirtricity, it changed its name to Airtricity in 2002.

The provider controls a sizable portion of both the residential electricity and gas markets in Ireland, at 12.5% and 11% respectively. This puts the supplier in third place for the overall electricity market share, after Electric Ireland and Bord Gáis Energy.
