(Reuters) – Power company SSE Plc <SSE.L> on Thursday reported a 1.2% dip in customer accounts and stuck to its full-year targets despite seeing a dip in the volume of renewable energy delivered in its first quarter compared to previous expectations.

SSE, one of Britain’s big six energy suppliers, said total energy customer accounts fell to 5.71 million as of June 30 from 5.78 million at the end of March.

The FTSE 100 constituent, which in June announced plans to shut its Fiddler’s Ferry coal-fired plant by the end of March 2020, said it was consulting with its employees and trade unions regarding the closure.
