Straight from our UK wind farms for just £6 extra a year.1
Helping your business go green, whatever your budget.
Helping your supply chain go green – your next step to reduce carbon.
Grow your business with 100% clean, fully certified renewable electricity – a simple, affordable way to cut your carbon footprint, report zero carbon emissions and show your commitment to sustainability.
We believe going green shouldn’t cost you the earth. If you’re a small business, switch to SSE Green Electricity and you could pay just £6 a year more than on a standard SSE electricity contract.1
We’re different because all our renewable electricity is sourced from SSE’s own UK wind and hydro assets.2 Sign up for SSE Green Electricity and you’ll be supporting future UK wind generation – as the largest renewable electricity generator in the UK and Ireland, SSE is planning to treble its renewable electricity output to 30TWh by 2030.
Our renewable electricity is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs). One REGO is issued for each megawatt hour of renewable power generated, so you can be sure your electricity is genuinely renewable.2
You’ll get a specially designed certificate and logo with SSE Green Electricity. Display them at work or in business communications to show customers and stakeholders you’re serious about sustainability.
If you’re on a flexible contract, you can even trace your renewable electricity to a specific wind farm for added environmental credibility. Sign up for SSE Green REGO+ and we’ll name your wind farm on your renewable electricity certificate.
By choosing a wind farm in your area, you’ll show customers and stakeholders you’re not only committed to sustainability, you’re supporting local communities, too.3
1Compared with a standard unit price based on a small business using an average of 6,000kWh of SSE Green Electricity a year at a rate of 0.1p/kWh: 6,000 x 0.1p = £6 per year. All our renewable electricity is sourced from wind and hydro assets wholly or partly owned by SSE Renewables, our sister company in the SSE Group. With SSE Green Electricity, you’ll continue to get your electricity through the national grid as normal, and we’ll match your consumption to REGOs from the SSE Group’s generating assets.
2With SSE Green Electricity or SSE Green REGO+, you’ll continue to get your electricity through the national grid as normal. The difference is that we’ll match your consumption to REGOs, which prove that we’ve topped up the grid with the same amount of renewable energy from the SSE Group’s generating assets.

Choosing renewable gas can help you demonstrate your company’s renewable credentials and show your positive commitment to sustainable values. A choice that’s good for the planet and good for your business.
Renewable gas is produced from sources like agricultural materials, food waste and wastewater. And using it results in lower greenhouse gas emissions than the gas derived from the fossil fuels it replaces.
But we recognise that using 100% renewable gas may not suit all business budgets, so we offer a choice of products:
SSE Green Gas is 25% certified renewable gas and 75% carbon-neutral gas backed by carbon offsets, a more affordable option.
SSE Green Gas Plus is simply 100% certified renewable gas, our premium product for more ambitious environmental targets.
All the renewable gas we buy is backed by Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin (RGGOs) or Biomethane Certificates (BMCs).
A green gas certificate is issued for every 1kWh of renewable gas produced and injected into the grid by accredited sites. So you can be sure it’s genuinely renewable and is helping to cut carbon.
Another way to reduce carbon is by using carbon offsets. Carbon offset projects allow you to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide (CO2) saving elsewhere.
By helping to pay to reduce CO2 in other parts of the world, you balance out, or offset, the CO2 your business is calculated to produce from the natural gas you buy – that means your gas is carbon-neutral.
If you sign up for an SSE Green Gas product, you’ll continue to get your gas through the national grid as normal. The difference is that we’ll buy the equivalent amount of certified renewable gas or carbon offsets to match your consumption.
With SSE Green Gas, we’ll match 25% of your consumption to green gas certificates (RGGOs or BMCs). The remaining 75% of your supply will be backed by carbon offset projects around the world. To further reduce carbon at home, we also pledge to plant one tree per SSE Green Gas customer in the UK.
With SSE Green Gas Plus, we’ll match all your consumption to green gas certificates. You’ll also get additional verification from EcoAct, an Atos company, to make reporting your greenhouse gas emissions even easier.
Whichever you choose, SSE Green Gas products can help you cut carbon and make your business stand out from the crowd.
You’ll get a specially designed certificate and logo with SSE Green Gas. Display them at work or in business communications to show customers and stakeholders you’re serious about sustainability.

To help you scale up your carbon-reduction plans, our new green supply chain solution lets you take your suppliers and partners on the journey to net zero with you.
The innovative SSE Green Supply Chain passes on your 100% renewable SSE Green Electricity preferential rate to your supply chain. This helps them improve their sustainability, and contributes towards reducing your Scope 3 emissions as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
For large companies a substantial part of your emissions can come from your supply chain – or Scope 3 emissions.
Leveraging your size, you can now help your suppliers and partners by giving them access to our SSE Green Electricity at the same preferential rate as you enjoy – making low-carbon renewable energy accessible to all and reducing your Scope 3 emissions.
Your supply chain will benefit from the same traceable, green energy as you – certified 100% renewable electricity generated by SSE’s own wind and hydro assets. It’s backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) and independently verified by EcoAct, an Atos company and CDP accredited provider.
Your supply chain emissions, part of the Scope 3 category, can feel hard to manage as they’re beyond your direct control. With SSE Green Supply Chain, you can reduce your Scope 3 emissions and show your shareholders and investors you’re leading the way to a net zero future.
When you choose to partner with SSE Business Energy, you’re working with a company who’s fully committed to creating a better world of energy for tomorrow.
SSE’s own carbon reduction goals are underpinned by Science Based Targets that help track our progress. This experience helps us to understand the journey you’re on, and how you can achieve your targets too.
