Latest price change
In November 2013, SSE announced a gas and electricity price rise of 8.2%. This change affected all customers of all SSE's subsidiaries, including those on tariffs from Atlantic.
A month later, in December 2013, the big six supplier announced it would reduce its price rise in line with cuts to green levies the government had announced the same month.
This would result in an overall price rise for Atlantic customers of 4.2%
