The agreement with OVO is in line with SSE`s view that the best future for its Energy Services business is outside the SSE group. The transaction anticipates that SSE Energy Services customers and employees will come to an innovative player in the market, focusing on exceptional customer experiences and an accelerated transition to a smarter, less carbon-efficient energy system. You can learn more about us, but whatever our name, our main goal is to provide excellent service to all our customers. Alistair Phillips-Davies, CEO of SSE, said: “We have long believed that a dedicated, focused and independent retailer will ultimately be the best way to serve customers, employees and other stakeholders – and this is a great opportunity to do so. OVO shares our tireless focus on customer service and has a bold vision of how technology can rediscover the future of the industry.

If successful, SSE will do everything in its power to ensure a smooth transition for customers and employees.
In the meantime, SSE Energy Services continues to focus on the important work of delivering its leading service to its customers – for whom there is no short-term change. Our boiler repair service is $295, but you can only pay $95 if you develop an annual SSE heating plan at the same time (excluding the SSE heating blanket 50 USD and SSE Heating Breakdown). You`ll be covered for the whole year for boiler outages and you`ll save 200 euros – that`s more than the cost of 6 monthly payments.
