SSE plc, one of the UK’s leading energy companies, involved in the generation, distribution and supply of electricity and in the extraction, storage, distribution and supply of gas responds to the Prime Minister's energy price cap announcement.

“SSE will look carefully at what is proposed by government and detailed consultation is required to help avoid any unintended consequences.  SSE believes in competition not caps, so if there is to be any intervention it should be simple to administer, time-limited, and maintain the principles of a competitive energy market to best serve customers’ interests.”
