SSE Airtricity to reduce natural gas tariffs in Northern Ireland from 1 July

02 June 2023

SSE Airtricity, Northern Irelandís largest provider of natural gas, has confirmed today it will reduce its regulated natural gas prices by 12.2%, delivering on its previous price promise to pass on reductions as soon as it was possible to do so.

The 12.2% reduction announced today comes into effect from 1 July 2023 and will apply to all domestic and small business customers supplied by the utility.

SSE Airtricity is the regulated supplier of natural gas to around 200,000^ home and small business customers in Northern Ireland. The company is announcing the reduction due to wholesale gas prices decreasing from the record highs experienced in the last 18 months and a more stable global energy market.

Today’s announcement follows consultation with the Northern Ireland Utility Regulator. The company also consulted with the Department for the Economy (DfE) and the Consumer Council of Northern Ireland (CCNI) as part of the review.
 
Andrew Greer, SSE Airtricity General Manager (NI) said:
 
“I’m pleased to be sharing this good news with our customers today and to be delivering on our promise to reduce our prices as soon as it was possible to do so. We know energy costs are a primary concern for customers across Northern Ireland and the last 18 months have been a difficult period for everyone who is trying to manage the impact of the cost of living crisis.

“We are hopeful the improvements in wholesale prices will continue and that market conditions stabilise to levels that are more sustainable for suppliers and consumers. SSE Airtricity is fully committed to continuing to reduce prices as and when it is possible to do so and will continue to work with our customers to provide the support and service, they need.”
