SSE contact number and how to get in touch with the SSE customer services team

SSE Scottish & Southern Electric was founded in 1998 after a merger between the Southern Electric and Scottish Hydro Electric Companies. SSE's headquarters are located in Perth, Scotland with offices that operate in the UK and Ireland. Before the merger, Southern Electric Company was engaged in hydro revolution activities in Scotland after the Hydro-Electric Development Act was enacted. The act ensured supply of electricity across the Highlands, spawning dramatic improvements among thousands of Scottish residents. Formerly referred to as Southern Electricity Board, SE was a distribution-only company with no power generation capacity. The North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board, however, operated a broader spectrum of its electricity generating capabilities. Today, SSE is the second largest supplier of natural gas and electricity in the UK and the region’s biggest producer of renewable energy. Apart from supplying gas and power, the company also provides phone and broadband services. SSE also owns Ferrybridge and Fiddlers Ferry power stations, which it acquired in 2004. SSE's subsidiaries are organised into the company's primary operations of generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity, storage and supply of gas, retailing of domestic appliances, as well as electrical contracting. The company's contracting business has five different areas of activity, which are commercial, industrial, domestic, electrical and mechanical contracting. SSE has also ventured in data communication installation, public and highway lighting, high-voltage design and maintenance, and instrumentation and electrical engineering. Sadly, the company recently announced it would be closing all Scottish Hydro Electric branches and the online store, citing changing consumer shopping habits.
