What to know about SSE tariffs

SSE is a British energy supplier currently offering its services to 5 million customers across the UK. The team behind SSE has been recognised for their high customer service ratings compared to the other Big 6 energy suppliers, as well as for successfully offering 100% renewable electricity services to both commercial and domestic clients.

A closer look at SSE tariffs

SSE is one of Britain’s foremost energy suppliers, dating back to the 1940s. With decades of experience in supplying renewable energy, they offer customers 100% green electricity via a number of tariffs. Below we take a closer look at the different SSE tariffs so you can find the most suitable one for your needs.

Fixed-rate tariffs:

SSE has several fixed-rate tariffs which lock in a set price for your energy, ensuring you’re protected against an increase in prices over the duration of your deal. These include one-year and two-year fixed tariffs, but be aware you’ll have to agree to have a smart meter installed if you sign up for either of these options.

Standard variable tariff (SVT):

SSE’s standard tariff is available to pay-as-you-go customers, and it’s also the default tariff you’ll be put on when your fixed-rate deal comes to an end.

Tariff bundles:

For better savings, SSE also offers some of its energy tariffs as part of a bundle, including the SSE Fix and Protect Bundle, which comes with a heating and boiler cover alongside your energy, and the SSE Fix and Fibre Bundle, which includes broadband as well as your energy.

All-electric tariffs:

SSE offers a number of all-electric tariffs (variable rate), where you get different prices for electricity depending on the time of day and where you live. While savings can be made here, you’ll need to use most of your energy at off-peak times as it will be much more expensive during the day.

Capped tariffs:

Designed to protect you from being charged an unfair amount, these tariffs cap the price you pay per unit of energy. Your prices will be capped if you are on an SVT or default tariff, have a PAYG meter or get the Warm Home Discount.

Pay-as-you-go/pre-payment tariff:

A pay-as-you-go or pre-payment tariff is when you pay for your energy before you use it via a meter. SSE doesn’t send out bills for these but you will get a statement each year.

Dual-fuel tariffs:

These tariffs mean you get both your electricity and gas from SSE, which can be more convenient to manage.
