There are a few ways you can submit your meter readings:

  • Online
  • Call the automated meter reading line on 0345 071 9894
  • Email
  • Post your readings to:
    SSE Energy Solutions

    RG1 3JH
  • Upgrade to a smart meter send your readings automatically

SSE will use your meter readings to work out how much energy you’ve used in that period and bill you accordingly. To do this, they’ll take your reading and subtract the readings from the last period.

How to get SSE smart meters for business

SSE is offering all businesses the chance to upgrade to a smart meter as part of the UK Government’s strategy to reach net-zero by 2030. If you’re eligible, you’ll be contacted by SSE.

If your business has up to nine sites, it will qualify for a SMETS2 meter, the second-generation smart meter. With a SMETS2 meter, your business can benefit from:

  • No more meter readings
  • 100% accurate bills
  • Opportunities to improve your energy efficiency and save money
  • Online energy management platform, SSE Clarity
Give accurate, automatic meter readings ⚡️

Did you know that with a smart meter you may never have to submit a meter reading again! 100% accurate bills, all the time. Give us a call to find out more about automatic meter readings.

020 3992 7717

If you’re eligible for a smart meter, SSE will get in contact by December 2021 to offer you a free installation appointment. If you’d like one sooner, you can contact SSE by calling 0345 725 2526.

The installation process should take no longer than 2 hours. When you book your appointment, bear in mind that your electricity and/or gas (depending on which is having a smart meter) will need to be turned off for around 30-40 minutes.

How to pay SSE business energy bills

You’ll find all the details on how to pay your bills on the back of your invoice.

The best way to pay your SSE business energy bill is by direct debit. It also protects you and your business via the Direct Debit Guarantee and avoids the risk of late payment. When it comes to direct debit, you have two options: budget direct debit (a set amount is taken each month) or variable direct debit (payment will be made in line with your agreed payment terms).

You can set up a direct debit by filling out this form and emailing it to or post it to:
SSE Energy Solutions Billing
No. 1 Forbury Place
43 Forbury Road

If you don’t want to pay by direct debit, you can also pay your bill:

  • By bank transfer
  • Using a credit/debit card
  • By cheque
  • At a PayPoint outlet

Are SSE business tariffs renewable?

All of SSE’s business tariffs for small businesses come with 100% renewable electricity, generated on their own wind farms and hydropower plants across the UK. On top of this, you’ll also have the ability to opt for 100% renewable gas.

If you’re on a flexible plan as a larger business, you have a range of options when it comes to renewable energy. You can choose to have 100% renewable electricity from across the UK, from a named wind farm, or you can buy the power you need directly from a wind farm with a Corporate Power Purchase Agreement.

SSE business tariffs can also be upgraded to 100% renewable gas. However, because 100% renewable gas may not be in all businesses’ budgets, SSE also offers ‘SSE Green Gas’ as an alternative. SSE Green Gas is 25% certified renewable gas and 75% carbon-neutral gas, back by carbon offsets.

What tools are available to businesses?

On top of your gas and electricity plan, there are a number of different tools available to make the most of your energy usage and help save you money.

SSE Clarity

SSE Clarity is an energy management platform that uses data from your smart or half-hourly meter to help you make sense of how you use your energy. Your data will be used to compile different graphs, charts, and interactive reports that allow you to drill down into different levels of data that you can find through your online account.

SSE Clarity consumption report

SSE Clarity’s reports are divided into two different types:

  • Interactive reports let you look into different levels of data
  • Static reports let you view data in fixed formats

Your interactive reports don’t just compare your energy usage over time, you can also see how it changes according to factors such as outside temperature, benchmark data, trading vs non-trading data. They can be used to identify problems and faults as well as where you can cut back on your usage to save money.

To use SSE Clarity, you’ll need to have a smart meter installed and turn on half-hourly readings. You’ll also need to give SSE permission to access and view your meter’s half-hourly data so it can be sent to your online dashboard and compiled into reports.

Activate SSE Clarity

Once you’ve activated SSE Clarity, you can upgrade at any time to SSE Clarity Advanced, which offers a wider range of in-depth analysis and reports suited to management level and Energy Managers. You can do this through your online account or by calling your Account Manager on 0800 072 3317.

SSE Foresight

SSE Foresight is a portal designed to help organisations with their energy trading. As an adaptive energy portal, you can track and monitor the energy market and protect your business against irregular changes in energy and commodity prices.

You can access the portal at any time across any device to understand your business’ exposure and risk at the touch of a button as well as transact energy in near real-time.

The main reason SSE Foresight is a great tool for businesses is that you can use it to make plans for different scenarios. This keeps you truly informed and ready for any situation to transform your SSE business energy trading capabilities.

Through the SSE Foresight portal, you can:

  • Get immediate access to the gas and electricity market
  • Track and monitor live SSE prices
  • Manage your energy risk and exposure
  • Access live position data, bespoke reports, price triggers, and ‘what if’ scenarios
  • Set alerts if certain market conditions occur
  • Set triggers that execute orders when the market reaches your target transaction level
  • Manage baskets, multiple contracts, and sites within the same system
  • Easily access your portal 24/7 through your online account

In the end, SSE Foresight is there to give you confidence when it comes to your energy usage and trading.

To activate Foresight, you can email or call your Account Manager on 0800 072 3317.

SSE Virtual Power Plant

If you can control when and how you consume and generate energy or have energy storage facilities, you might be able to take advantage of the SSE Virtual Power Plant service.

The SSE Virtual Power Plant knits together all types of distributed energy resources, such as demand-side response, combined heat and power (CHP), battery storage, generation, and electric vehicles to maximise value across all potential revenue streams.

The service can help you to:

  • Make the most of the flexibility of your assets to make money
  • Provide extra services to the National Grid
  • Access a broader range of revenue streams
  • Make use of future-proofed technology
  • Make a revenue share agreement with SSE with no upfront or hidden fees
  • Receive additional insight into your assets and their performance

To get started with SSE’s Virtual Power Plant, call your Account Manager on 0800 072 3317 or email

Once you’re set up with the Virtual Power Plant, you’ll be able to check your performance and earnings through the live portal and you’ll be sent a monthly account statement and payment. You can access both of these through your SSE business online account.

EV Charging at Work

With businesses owning over half of all registered vehicles in the UK and the sale of petrol and diesel cars set to end in 2030, workplace EV charging is something all companies should be considering.

SSE EV Charging at Work is a scalable end-to-end EV charging solution designed for your business. Whether you need large charging networks for your business’ vehicles or a few charging points for your employees, you can show your commitment to sustainability and help your staff drive greener.

SSE EV charging hub

Getting started with workplace charging is extremely easy with SSE, and might cost less than you think. The Government is currently offering a grant under the Workplace Charging Scheme where you can claim up to £350 per charging point (up to £14,000 in total). With a range of added options such as 100% renewable electricity, maintenance contracts, and financing options, there’s no excuse to not join the EV revolution!

If you have over 100 square meters of space available in a well-located, easily accessible site, you could join SSE’s newest EV charging project, help your community go green, and earn long-term revenue. SSE are looking for sites like yours to set up public EV charging hubs. SSE will cover the costs and installation of the charging points, and it’s a great way to boost your business’ reputation in the community.

For more information on EV Charging at Work, you can email or call 0800 072 3317.

To switch your business’ energy provider to SSE, you should give them a call on 0800 389 4466. They’ll talk you through your options depending on your business’ needs and usage to help you choose the best tariff.
