SSE contact number

It can seem like energy companies are making it easier for people to contact them online when there’s a complaint. But as they make it easier for online chat customer services, trying to find a phone number, so that you can talk to an actual person about your complaint seems to be getting more and more difficult. The phone numbers can be difficult to find on your provider's website, and it usually takes quite some time before you can find what you’re looking for. Sometimes you might find the number you want on your paper bill, but if you don’t keep the paper bill, or you have paperless billing, then how do you navigate the websites to find the number. It can be very frustrating to try to find an SSE contact number when you need to make a complaint or report an emergency.

Call our SSE contact number today, and get connected through to the main Scottish & Southern Electric customer services line.

Calls cost £0.07 per minute, plus your phone company’s access charge. Check with your provider because access charges vary from company to company, and calls from mobiles may cost considerably more. We provide a call connection service, more details available on Ofcom's website.

If you would prefer to call SSE directly, here are some of the departments you may wish to contact.
